"This is a first-rate book and deserves to be widely read." — American Mathematical Monthly Despite its success as a mathematical tool in the general theory of relativity and its adaptability to a wide range of mathematical and physical problems, tensor analysis has always had a rather restricted level of use, with an emphasis on notation and the manipulation of indices/5(40). Assuming only a knowledge of basic calculus, this text presents an elementary and gradual development of tensor theory. From this treatment, the traditional material of courses on vector analysis is deduced as a particular case. In addition, the book forms an introduction to metric differential geometry.

'Tensor Analysis' suggests to a mathematician an ungeometric, manipulative debauch of indices, with tensors ill-defined as 'quantities that transform according to' unspeakable formulae. 'Differential Geometry' would leave many a physicist unaware that the book is about matters with which he is very much by: The applications of tensors to the fields of differential geometry, relativity, cosmology and electromagnetism is another attraction of the present book.
This book is intended to serve as text for postgraduate students of mathematics, physics and engineering. It is ideally suited for both students and teachers who are engaged in /5(6).
The geometry of tensors is both a powerful tool for extracting information from data sets, and a beautiful subject in its own right.

The authors present a thorough development of TENSOR CALCULUS, from basic principals, such as ordinary three dimensional vector Tensor Geometry book. Tensors are generalizations of vectors to any number of dimensions (vectors are type (1,0) tensors, diff. forms are type (0,1) tensors).Cited by: This book includes both tensor calculus and differential geometry in a single volume.
This book provides a conceptual exposition of the fundamental results in the theory of tensors. It also illustrates the applications of tensors to differential geometry, mechanics and relativity.
Tensor calculus is a powerful tool that combines the geometric and analytical perspectives and enables us to take full advantage of the computational utility of coordinate systems. The tensor approach can be of benefit to members of all technical sciences including mathematics and all engineering by: that they provide a useful way to organize data.

geometry—I’ll save those for a separate set of notes. The title, The Poor Man’s Introduction to Tensors, is a reference to Gravitation by Misner, Thorne and Wheeler, which characterizes simplified approaches to a problem as “the poor man’s way to do X.” Originally, these notes were.
Renteln’s book makes it clear what the meaning of the word is, whereas other books leave it undefined and somewhat mystical. We have the mathematical object of a differentiable manifold, and it is imbued with a topology and a metric.

Tensor analysis is the type of subject that can make even the best of students shudder. My own post-graduate instructor in the subject took away much of the fear by speaking of an implicit rhythm in the peculiar notation traditionally used, and helped me to see how this rhythm plays its way throughout the various Size: KB.

In mathematics, a tensor is an algebraic object related to a vector space and its dual space that can take several different forms, for example, a scalar, a tangent vector at a point, a cotangent vector (dual vector) at a point, or a multi-linear map between vector spaces.
KEY WORDS: Curve, Frenet frame, curvature, torsion, hypersurface, funda-mental forms, principal curvature, Gaussian curvature, Minkowski curvature, manifold, tensor eld, connection, geodesic curve SUMMARY: The aim of this textbook is to give an introduction to di er-ential geometry. It is based on the lectures given by the author at E otv os.
The book deals with integral geometry of symmetric tensor ﬂelds. This section of integral geometry can be viewed as mathematical basis for tomography of anisotropic media whose interaction with sounding radiation depends essentially on the direction in which the latter propagates.

Tensors: Geometry and Applications is about what happens in the general case: given an element φ of a tensor product A ⊗ B ⊗ C ⊗ ⊗ Z, it can be represented as a sum of rank one tensors a ⊗ b ⊗ c ⊗ ⊗ z.
Define the rank of φ to be the minimal number of terms in a representation. may denote a tensor of rank (2,0) by T(P,˜ Q˜); one of rank (2,1) by T(P,˜ Q,˜ A~), etc.
Our notation will not distinguish a (2,0) tensor T from a (2,1) tensor T, although a notational distinction could be made by placing marrows and ntildes over the symbol, or by appropriate use of dummy indices (Wald ).File Size: KB.

Tensor analysis, branch of mathematics concerned with relations or laws that remain valid regardless of the system of coordinates used to specify the quantities. Such relations are called covariant. Tensors were invented as an extension of vectors to formalize the manipulation of geometric entities arising in the study of mathematical manifolds.
A vector is an entity that has both magnitude. Lectures on Geodesics Riemannian Geometry. Aim of this book is to give a fairly complete treatment of the foundations of Riemannian geometry through the tangent bundle and the geodesic flow on it.

A carefully selected set of unsolved problems is also given at the end of each chapter, and the answers and hints for the solution of these problems are given at the end of the book.
The applications of tensors to the fields of differential geometry, relativity, cosmology and electromagnetism is another attraction of the present book.3/5(2). Plus, Tensor Calculus is really just a corollary to Differential Geometry. EDIT: I usually don't do DG, I typically stick to Algebraic Geometry (which are both structurally similar thanks to Grothendieck), so I can't recommend the best introductory book.

introduction to tensor calculus and continuum mechanics In Part One I have included introductory topics in tensors, differential geometry and relativity. Part Two presents basics from the areas of continuum mechanics (dynamics, elasticity, fluids, electricity, magnetism).
The first chapters of the book focus on the basic concepts and facts of analytic geometry, the theory of space curves, and the foundations of the theory of surfaces, including problems closely related to the first and second fundamental forms.
The treatment of the theory of surfaces makes full use of the tensor calculus.5/5(2). Leonhardt & Philbin: Geometry & Light - This book starts by developing variational principles and tensor calculus from scratch and uses them to explain the (real) science of cloaking.
Media with varying refractivity are treated mathematically as curved spaces and formal paralles are drwn with phenomena in general relativity.

Believe it or not, I made it all the way to a PhD in math at Rice University without studying anything called "tensor" in math or physics. I think many things I studied were some of the same ideas by different names - differential geometry, lots.In mathematics and physics, a tensor field assigns a tensor to each point of a mathematical space (typically a Euclidean space or manifold).Tensor fields are used in differential geometry, algebraic geometry, general relativity, in the analysis of stress and strain in materials, and in numerous applications in the physical sciences.
As a tensor is a generalization of a scalar (a pure number.
