**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

**Description**:

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.
