Foundations of Tensor Analysis for Students of Physics and Engineering With an Introduction to the Theory of Relativity
by

Publisher: Glenn Research Center
Number of pages: 92

Description:
Tensor analysis is useful because of its great generality, computational power, and compact, easy-to-use notation. This monograph is intended to provide a conceptual foundation for students of physics and engineering who wish to pursue tensor analysis as part of their advanced studies in applied mathematics.
