When solving physical problems, one must often choose between writing formulas in a coordinate independent form or a form in which calculations are transparent. Tensors are important because they allow one to write formulas in a manner that is both coordinate independent and transparent in performing calculations. In these notes, I provide an informal introduction to tensors (in Euclidean space) for those who are familiar with the basics of linear algebra and vector calculus. Introductory… 
CRITIQUE OF IMPURE REASON: Horizons of Possibility and Meaning
The _CRITIQUE OF IMPURE REASON: Horizons of Possibility and Meaning_ is a major contribution to epistemology and the philosophy of science. Thanks to the generosity of its publisher, this impressive
Simulation of natural disasters and managing rescue operations via geospatial crowdsourcing services in tensor space
TLDR
A crisis crowdsourcing mathematical framework is designed, which has been constructed upon vector space elements, tensors, and geometrical products, which offers an environment to easily incorporate people in a wireless mobile application, to tackle emergency process.
