Functional and Structured Tensor Analysis for Engineers
by R. M. Brannon
Publisher: The University of Utah 2003
Number of pages: 323
A step-by-step introduction to tensor analysis that assumes you know nothing but basic calculus. Considerable emphasis is placed on a notation style that works well for applications in materials modeling, but other notation styles are also reviewed to help you better decipher the literature. Topics include: matrix and vector analysis, properties of tensors, dyads and outer products, axial vectors, axial tensors, scalar invariants and spectral analysis, geometry, material symmetry such as transverse isotropy, polar decomposition, and vector/tensor calculus theorems such as the divergence theorem and Stokes theorem.

by Samuel Keller - D. Van Nostrand Company
Much that is ordinarily included in treatises on Analytics and Calculus, has been omitted from this book, not because it was regarded as worthless, but because it was considered quite unnecessary for the student of engineering.
by M. Abramowitz, I. A. Stegun - GPO
Students and professionals in the fields of mathematics, physics, engineering, and economics will find this reference work invaluable. A classic resource for special functions, standard trig, and exponential logarithmic definitions and extensions.
by M. Daniel Sloan, Russell A. Boyles - Evidence-Based Decisions, Inc.
A pioneering Six Sigma work written by two internationally recognized Master Black Belts. The authors present a unique view on how executives, managers and Six Sigma practitioners can use evidence to make better, more profitable decisions.
by William Neville Rose - Chapman
These two volumes form a most comprehensive and practical treatise on the subject. They show the direct bearing of all principles to engineering practice, and will prove a valuable reference work embracing all the mathematics needed by engineers.
