Introduction to Tensor CalculusIntroduction to Tensor Calculus
by Kees Dullemond, Kasper Peeters - University of Heidelberg , 2010
This booklet contains an explanation about tensor calculus for students of physics and engineering with a basic knowledge of linear algebra. The focus lies on acquiring an understanding of the principles and ideas underlying the concept of 'tensor'.

A Gentle Introduction to TensorsA Gentle Introduction to Tensors
by Boaz Porat - Technion , 2010
The book discusses constant tensors and constant linear transformations, tensor fields and curvilinear coordinates, and extends tensor theory to spaces other than vector spaces, namely manifolds. Written for the benefits of Engineering students.

An Introduction to Tensors for Students of Physics and EngineeringAn Introduction to Tensors for Students of Physics and Engineering
by Joseph C. Kolecki - Glenn Research Center , 2002
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.

Functional and Structured Tensor Analysis for EngineersFunctional and Structured Tensor Analysis for Engineers
by R. M. Brannon - The University of Utah , 2003
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.

Quick Introduction to Tensor AnalysisQuick Introduction to Tensor Analysis
by Ruslan Sharipov - Samizdat Press , 2004
The author gives only a draft of tensor theory, he formulates definitions and theorems and gives basic ideas and formulas. Proving consistence of definitions, deriving formulas, proving theorems or completing details to proofs is left to the reader.

Tensor AnalysisTensor Analysis
by Edward Nelson - Princeton Univ Pr , 1974
The lecture notes for the first part of a one-term course on differential geometry given at Princeton in the spring of 1967. They are an expository account of the formal algebraic aspects of tensor analysis using both modern and classical notations.
