Quick Introduction to Tensor Analysis
by

Publisher: Samizdat Press
Number of pages: 47

Description:
The author wrote this book in a 'do-it-yourself' style so that he gave only a draft of tensor theory, which includes formulating definitions and theorems and giving basic ideas and formulas. All other work such as proving consistence of definitions, deriving formulas, proving theorems or completing details to proofs is left to the reader in the form of numerous exercises. This style makes learning the subject really quick and more effective for understanding and memorizing.
