PART 1: INTRODUCTION TO TENSOR CALCULUS A scalar eld describes a one-to-one correspondence between a single scalar number and a point. An n-dimensional vector eld is described by a one-to-one correspondence between n-numbers and a point. Let us generalize these concepts by assigning n-squared numbers to a single point or n-cubed numbers to a single. Offering books by Banesh Hoffmann, Tullio Levi-Civita, Ray M. Bowen, and other respected authors, our publishing program on vectors, tensors, and spinors includes a wealth of low-priced texts. You can order books on the applications of tensor analysis, matrix vector analysis, tensor analysis on manifolds, the theory of spinors, and more.

different mathematics subjects, such as Calculus, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. These topics are usually encountered in fundamental mathematics courses. However, in a more thorough and in-depth treatment of mechanics, it is essential to describe the physical world using the concept of the tensor, and so we begin this book. In mathematics, tensor calculus, tensor analysis, or Ricci calculus is an extension of vector calculus to tensor fields (tensors that may vary over a manifold, e.g. in spacetime).. Developed by Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro and his student Tullio Levi-Civita, it was used by Albert Einstein to develop his general theory of the infinitesimal calculus, tensor calculus allows.

out of 5 stars A brief but average book on matrix and tensor calculus. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on J Verified Purchase. This book includes elementary matrix and tensor calculus with some applications. The book is brief and concise but an update to typesetting and markings may be necessary to bring that book into new Cited by: 8.

From the book reviews: “Addressing physicists, applied scientists and engineers with no previous knowledge of tensor calculus, Ludyk presents in a well-written manner a rather easy introduction to special as well as general relativity by solely using matrix calculus and elementary differential geometry.

Matrix Matrix and tensor calculus book, Kronecker Product and Tensor Product:A Practical Approach to Linear Algebra, Multilinear Algebra and Tensor Calculus with Software Implementations by Yorick Hardy and Willi-Hans Steeb | Apr 5, This book is based on my previous book: Tensor Calculus Made Simple, where the development of tensor calculus concepts and techniques are continued at a higher level.

Unlike the previous book which is largely based on a Cartesian approach, the formulation in the present book is based on a general coordinate system. superscripts. Prior to our applying vector and tensor analysis to our research area of modern continuum mechanics, we almost had to relearn the subject.

Tensors have their applications to Riemannian Geometry, Mechanics, Elasticity, Theory of Relativity, Electromagnetic Theory and many other disciplines of Science and Engineering. The book also contains a number of graphic illustrations to help the readers to visualize the ideas and understand the subtle concepts.

The book can be used as a text for an introductory or an intermediate level course on tensor calculus. The familiarity with the materials presented in the. more.

Second, tensor theory, at the most elementary level, requires only linear algebra and some calculus as prerequisites. Proceeding a small step further, tensor theory requires background in multivariate calculus.

The reader must be prepared to do some mathematics and to think. notation, groups, invariants and tensor calculus.

Examples are drawn from linear algebra, physics and statistics. Chapters 2 and 3, dealing with moments, cumulants and invariants, form the core of the book and are required reading for all subsequent chapters. Chapter 4 covers the topics of sample cumulants, symmetric functions.

It has the advantage that one can easily manipulate arbitrarily high rank tensors, whereas tensors of rank higher than two are quite unwieldy with matrix. So you don't want a book on tensor calculus! Tensor calculus is the name for a discipline that is used a lot in applied mathematics and it is related to your link, but it is not what you want.

I was confused because you used this term. Firstly, what is a tensor? A tensor on a ##k##-vector space ##V## is just a multilinear map ##V\times.
