Download e-book for kindle: A Student's Guide to Vectors and Tensors by Daniel Fleisch

By Daniel Fleisch

Vectors and tensors are one of the strongest problem-solving instruments on hand, with purposes starting from mechanics and electromagnetics to basic relativity. realizing the character and alertness of vectors and tensors is severely very important to scholars of physics and engineering. Adopting an identical technique utilized in his hugely renowned A Student's advisor to Maxwell's Equations, Fleisch explains vectors and tensors in undeniable language. Written for undergraduate and starting graduate scholars, the e-book presents a radical grounding in vectors and vector calculus ahead of transitioning via contra and covariant elements to tensors and their functions. Matrices and their algebra are reviewed at the book's aiding web site, which additionally gains interactive suggestions to each challenge within the textual content the place scholars can paintings via a chain of tricks or decide to see the total resolution straight away. Audio podcasts supply scholars the chance to listen to very important thoughts within the publication defined by way of the author.
