Symbolic Tensor Calculus on Manifolds: a SageMath Implementation
by

Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 72

Description:
These lecture notes present a method for symbolic tensor calculus that (i) runs on fully specified smooth manifolds (described by an atlas), (ii) is not limited to a single coordinate chart or vector frame, (iii) runs even on non-parallelizable manifolds and (iv) is independent of the symbolic engine employed to perform calculus at the level of coordinate expressions.

The book should serve as a bridge to the place where most texts on tensor analysis begin. A semi-intuitive approach to those notions underlying tensor analysis is given via scalars, vectors, dyads, triads, and similar higher-order vector products.
