Vector and Tensor Analysis
"Remarkably comprehensive, concise and clear." — Industrial Laboratories "Considered as a condensed text in the classical manner, the book can well be recommended." — Nature Here is a clear introduction to classic vector and tensor analysis for students of engineering and mathematical physics. Chapters range from elementary operations and applications of geometry, to application of vectors to mechanics, partial differentiation, integration, and tensor analysis. More than 200 problems are included throughout the book.
