Title: Introduction to vectors and tensors, Vol 2: vector and tensor analysis
Author: Bowen, Ray M.; Wang, C.-C.
Abstract: This is the second volume of a two-volume work on vectors and tensors. Volume 1 is concerned with the algebra of vectors and tensors, while this volume is concerned with the geometrical 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 to the distribution of the vector or tensor values of the field on its domain. While we do not discuss general differentiable manifolds, we do include a chapter on vector and tensor fields defined on hypersurfaces in a Euclidean manifold.
