- All methods are explained in 3 dimensions, both in Cartesian & in curvilinear coordinates.
- The theory of surfaces & of the representation of tensor functions are introduced.
- A variety of problems with detailed solutions engage readers in learning.
Aims and Scope
Tensor calculus is a prerequisite for many tasks in physics and engineering. This book introduces the symbolic and the index notation side by side and offers easy access to techniques in the field by focusing on algorithms in index notation. It explains the required algebraic tools and contains numerous exercises with answers, making it suitable for self study for students and researchers in areas such as solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and electrodynamics.
