9783540228875: From Vectors to Tensors

This textbook deals with tensors that are treated as vectors. Coverage details such new tensor concepts as the rotation of tensors, the transposer tensor, the eigentensors, and the permutation tensor structure. The book covers an existing gap between the classic theory of tensors and the possibility of solving tensor problems with a computer. A complementary computer package, written in Mathematica, is available through the Internet.

Review:

From the reviews:

"The book bridges a gap between the classical theory of tensors and the possibility of solving tensor problems with a computer. ... For the first time, tensor contraction is formulated in terms of matrix operations. ... Addressed primarily to students of engineering, applied mathematics and mathematical physics, this unconventional approach to tensors is original for its orientation, its novel concepts, the choice of notation and the stretching-condensing techniques applied to most of the transformations used." (Bulletin Bibliographique, 51:1-2, 2005)

"In this textbook, the authors present a new and, to some extent, unconventional approach to tensors ... . This volume gives a thorough treatment of the topic of sensors. ... the exposition of the book is a very transparent one and a pleasure to read. ... Primary addressees of the book are (graduate) students in applied mathematics, mathematical physics, and engineering sciences as well. Moreover, the book can be recommended without reservations to instructors ... ." (A. R. Kräuter, Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten, Issue 203, 2006)

Book Description Springer-Verlag Gmbh Nov 2004, 2004. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - This textbook, deals with tensors that are treated as vectors, and has a practical orientation. In addition to dealing with the classical topics of tensor books, new tensor concepts are introduced, such as the rotation of tensors, the transposer tensor, the eigentensors, the permutation tensor structure, etc. The book covers an existing gap between the classic theory of tensors and the possibility of solving tensor problems with a computer. In fact, the computational algebra is formulated in matrix form to facilitate its implementation on computers. For the first time tensor contraction is formulated in terms of matrix operations. A computer package , written in Mathematica, is available through Internet  at: personales.unican.es/castie/tensors that complements the book. In summary, the book is not a standard book on tensors because of its orientation, the many novel contributions included in it, the careful notation and the stretching-condensing techniques used for most of the transformations used in the book. 670 pp. Englisch.
