Small book cover: An Introduction to Tensors for Students of Physics and Engineering

An Introduction to Tensors for Students of Physics and Engineering
by

Publisher: Glenn Research Center
Number of pages: 29

Description:
The book is intended to serve as a bridge from the point where most undergraduate students 'leave off' in their studies of mathematics to the place where most texts on tensor analysis begin. A basic knowledge of vectors, matrices, and physics is assumed. A semi-intuitive approach to those notions underlying tensor analysis is given via scalars, vectors, dyads, triads, and similar higher-order vector products.
