Primarily intended for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of mathematics, this textbook covers both geometry and tensor in a single volume.
This book aims to provide a conceptual exposition of the fundamental results in the theory of tensors. It also illustrates the applications of tensors to differential geometry, mechanics and relativity. Organized in ten chapters, it provides the origin and nature of the tensor along with the scope of the tensor calculus. Besides this, it also discusses N-dimensional Riemannian space, characteristic peculiarity of Riemannian space, intrinsic property of surfaces, and properties and transformation of Christoffel’s symbols.
Besides the students of mathematics, this book will be equally useful for the postgraduate students of physics.
