**An Introduction to Tensors for Students of Physics and Engineering**

**Glenn Research Center**

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.
