Minimal Integrity Bases of Invariants of Second Order Tensors in a Flat Riemannian Space

  author={Liqun Qi and Zhenghai Huang},
  journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics},
In this paper, we study invariants of second order tensors in an $n$-dimensional flat Riemannian space. We define eigenvalues, eigenvectors and characteristic polynomials for second order tensors in such an $n$-dimensional Riemannian space and show that the coefficients of the characteristic polynomials are real polynomial invariants of that tensor. Then we give minimal integrity bases for second order symmetric and antisymmetric tensors, respectively, and study their special cases in the… 



Isotropic invariants of a completely symmetric third-order tensor

In both theoretical and applied mechanics, the modeling of nonlinear constitutive relations of materials is a topic of prime importance. To properly formulate consistent constitutive laws some

About The Cosmological Constant, Acceleration Field, Pressure Field And Energy

Based on the condition of relativistic energy uniqueness, the calibration of the cosmological constant was performed. This allowed to obtain the corresponding equation for the metric and to determine

The cosmological constant

We discuss issues related with the cosmological constant problem in the light of recent observations which tend to indicate that the expansion of the universe is presently undergoing an acceleration.
