Vectors, tensors and groups by Thor Anders Bak Download PDF EPUB FB2

The infinite direct sum of the tensor spaces of every type forms an associative algebra. This algebra is also called the “tensor algebra,” and “tensor” sometimes refers to the general elements of this algebra, in which case tensors as defined above are called homogeneous this book, we will always use the term “tensor” to mean homogeneous tensor, while for “tensor.

This book is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Volume I begins with a brief discussion of algebraic structures followed by detailed explorations of the algebra of vectors and tensors, in addition to aspects of linear and multi-linear algebra.

Topics include vector spaces, linear transformations, determinants and matrices, spectral decompositions, and tensor and exterior by: COVID Resources.

writing this book is to make available a modern introductory textbook suitable for the first in-depth exposure to vectors and tensors. Because of our interest in applications, it is our hope that this book will aid students in their efforts to use vectors and tensors in applied Size: 1MB.

Groups are one of the simplest and most prevalent algebraic objects in physics. Geometry, which forms the foundation of many physical models, is concerned with spaces and structures that are preserved under transformations of these spaces. aspects of vectors and tensors.

This volume begins with a discussion of Euclidean manifolds. The principal mathematical entity considered in this volume is a field, which is defined on a domain in a Euclidean manifold.

The values of the field may be vectors or tensors. We investigate results due. The book assumes a certain knowledge of linear algebra, and is intended as a textbook for graduate and postgraduate students and also as a consultation book.

It is addressed to mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and applied scientists with a practical orientation who are looking for powerful tensor tools to solve their problems.

Introduction to Vectors and Tensors Volume 2: Vector and Tensor Analysis by Ray M. Bowen, C.-C. Wang. ISBN/ASIN: Number of pages: Description: The textbook presents introductory concepts of vector and tensor analysis.

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 problems are included throughout the book. 1 Vectors & Tensors The mathematical modeling of the physical world requires knowledge of quite a few different mathematics subjects, such as Calculus, Differential Equations and Linear Algebra.

These topics are usually encountered in fundamental mathematics courses. However, in a more thorough and in-depth treatment of mechanics, it is File Size: 1MB. Tensor analysis, branch of mathematics concerned with relations or laws that remain valid regardless of the system of coordinates used to specify the quantities.

Such relations are called covariant. Tensors were invented as an extension of vectors to formalize the manipulation of geometric entities arising in the study of mathematical manifolds. A vector is an entity that has both magnitude. Intuitive motivation and the concrete tensor product.

The intuitive motivation for the tensor product relies on the concept of tensors more generally. In particular, a tensor is an object that can be considered a special type of multilinear map, which takes in a certain number of vectors (its order) and outputs a objects are useful in a number of areas of application, such as.

Frank E. Harris, in Mathematics for Physical Science and Engineering, Tensors are generalizations of the multicomponent quantities we have already encountered, namely vectors and matrices. In three-dimensional space, we define a tensor of rank n as an object with 3 n components, with properties we shortly discuss in some detail.

Tensors are defined in such a way that those of rank 0, 1. An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists provides both an intuitive and rigorous approach to tensors and groups and their role in theoretical physics and applied mathematics.

The present book, a valuable addition to the English-language literature on linear algebra and tensors, constitutes a lucid, eminently readable and completely elementary introduction to this field of mathematics.

A special merit of the book is its free use of tensor notation, in particular the Einstein summation convention. A tetrahedron defined by four vectors from a central vertex conversely suggest a fully defined tetrahedron from a single external vertex using 3 tensors measured to angles less than 90 degrees.

Another tetrahedral arrangement would be 2 vectors and 4 points at. From the reviews: With "An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists," physicist Nadir Jeevanjee has produced a masterly book that will help other physicists understand those subjects [tensors and groups] as mathematicians understand them From the first pages, Jeevanjee shows amazing skill in finding fresh, compelling words to bring forward the insight that animates the modern /5(9).

Tensors are ubiquitous in the sciences. One reason for their ubiquity is that they provide a useful way to organize data. Geometry is a powerful tool for extracting information from data sets, and a beautiful subject in its own right. This book has three intended uses: as a classroom textbook, a reference work for researchers, and a research.
