About this book
Tensors: The Mathematics of Relativity Theory and Continuum Mechanics, by Anadijiban Das, emerged from courses taught over the years at the University College of Dublin, Carnegie-Mellon University and Simon Fraser University.
This book will serve readers well as a modern introduction to the theories of tensor algebra and tensor analysis. Throughout Tensors, examples and worked-out problems are furnished from the theory of relativity and continuum mechanics.
Topics covered in this book include, but are not limited to:
-Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian manifolds
The extensive presentation of the mathematical tools, examples and problems make the book a unique text for the pursuit of both the mathematical relativity theory and continuum mechanics.
