Book Description

Revised and updated throughout, this book presents the fundamental concepts of vector and tensor analysis with their corresponding physical and geometric applications - emphasizing the development of computational skills and basic procedures, and exploring highly complex and technical topics in simplified settings.;This text: incorporates transformation of rectangular cartesian coordinate systems and the invariance of the gradient, divergence and the curl into the discussion of tensors; combines the test for independence of path and the path independence sections; offers new examples and figures that demonstrate computational methods, as well as carify concepts; introduces subtitles in each section to highlight the appearance of new topics; provides definitions and theorems in boldface type for easy identification. It also contains numerical exercises of varying levels of difficulty and many problems solved.

Table of Contents

Vector algebra; differential calculus of vector functions of one variable; differential calculus of scalar and vector fields; integral calculus of scalar and vector fields; tensors in rectangular cartesian coordinate systems; general tensors; solutions to selected problems.
