Synopsis

Tensors The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics by Anadi Jiban Das

Here is a modern introduction to the theory of tensor algebra and tensor analysis. It discusses tensor algebra and introduces differential manifold. Coverage also details tensor analysis, differential forms, connection forms, and curvature tensor. In addition, the book investigates Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian manifolds in great detail. Throughout, examples and problems are furnished from the theory of relativity and continuum mechanics.

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)
