  • Tensors are mathematical objects that generalize vectors and matrices. They describe geometrical quantities and they are used in various applied settings including mathematical physics. The indicial notation of tensors permits us to write an expression in a compact manner and to use simplifying mathematical operations. In a large number of problems in differential geometry and general relativity, the time consuming and straightforward algebraic manipulation is obviously very important. Thus… CONTINUE READING
