Foundations of Tensor Analysis for Students of Physics and Engineering With an Introduction to the Theory of Relativity
by Joseph C. Kolecki
Publisher: Glenn Research Center 2005
Number of pages: 92
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.

Sir Arthur Eddington here formulates mathematically his conception of the world of physics derived from the theory of relativity. The argument is developed in a form which throws light on the origin and significance of the great laws of physics.

These notes will be helpful to undergraduate and postgraduate students in theoretical physics and in applied mathematics. Modern terminology in differential geometry has been discussed in the book with the motivation of geometrical way of thinking.

Starting from Newton's gravitational theory, we give a general introduction into the spherically symmetric solution of Einstein's vacuum field equation, the Schwarzschild solution, and into one specific stationary solution, the Kerr solution.
