Tensor analysis is used in engineering and science fields. Calculations of physical quantities in different systems of coordinates and transformations are required in scientific computations. This requires the use of mathematical concepts and application software. This book is designed to provide the necessary definitions, formulations, and procedures for tensor analysis and transformations to help engineers and scientists to perform their calculations in arbitrary coordinates systems. FEATURES - Application of AR (augmented reality) to enhance static figures. Easy to understand mathematical concepts through numerous figures, solved examples, and exercises. List of gradient-like operators for major systems of coordinates. Companion disc with applications.
