Download A Student's Guide to Vectors and Tensors by Daniel Fleisch PDF

By Daniel Fleisch

Vectors and tensors are one of the strongest problem-solving instruments on hand, with functions starting from mechanics and electromagnetics to basic relativity. realizing the character and alertness of vectors and tensors is significantly vital to scholars of physics and engineering. Adopting a similar method utilized in his hugely well known 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 an intensive grounding in vectors and vector calculus sooner than transitioning via contra and covariant elements to tensors and their purposes. Matrices and their algebra are reviewed at the book's assisting web site, which additionally beneficial properties interactive ideas to each challenge within the textual content the place scholars can paintings via a sequence of tricks or decide to see the full resolution right now. Audio podcasts provide scholars the chance to listen to very important innovations within the ebook defined via the author.
