Reviews

From the reviews:

This book is a very nice introduction to the theory of tensor analysis on differentiable manifolds. It is intended mainly for students, but it can also be useful to everyone interested in the tensor analysis on differentiable manifolds and its application to the relativity theory and continuum mechanics. (Cezar Dumitru Oniciuc, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1138 (16), 2008)
