DOC: AN INTRODUCTION TO TENSORS FOR STUDENTS OF PHYSICS AND ENGINEERING


Tensor analysis is the type of subject that can make even the best of students shudder. My own post-graduate instructor in the subject took away much of the fear by speaking of an implicit rhythm in the peculiar notation traditionally used, and helped me to see how this rhythm plays its way throughout the various formalisms....

  THE POOR MAN'S INTRODUCTION TO TENSORS

... WHEN SOLVING PHYSICAL PROBLEMS, ONE MUST OFTEN CHOOSE BETWEEN WRITING FORMULAS IN A COORDINATE INDEPENDENT FORM OR A FORM IN WHICH CALCULATIONS ARE TRANSPARENT. TENSORS ARE IMPORTANT BECAUSE THEY ALLOW ONE TO WRITE FORMULAS IN A MANNER THAT IS BOTH COORDINATE INDEPENDENT AND TRANSPARENT IN PERFORMING CALCULATIONS. IN THESE NOTES, I PROVIDE AN INFORMAL INTRODUCTION TO TENSORS (IN EUCLIDEAN SPACE) FOR THOSE WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE BASICS OF LINEAR ALGEBRA AND VECTOR CALCULUS. ...
