This chapter is devoted to the study of the characteristic properties of symmetric tensors of rank 2. They represent many physical properties which, in isotropic materials, are described by a simple scalar. The end of this chapter introduces axial vectors, which are antisymmetric tensors of rank 2, and gives examples.
