Tensors

Tensor Notation.

Second Rank Tensors: Second rank tensors are often referred to simply as " tensors ." First rank tensors are referred to as vectors, and zero rank tensors as scalars.

Introduction to Tensor Calculus for General Relativity

Weinberg minimizes the geometrical content of the equations by representing tensors using component notation. We believe that it is equally easy to work withamore geometrical description, ...

Tensor Decompositions and Applications

Tall tensors are treated in[213] (and[216]for I J2 arrays). Little is known about the typical rank of compact tensors except for when I=JKJ[213].

Tensor Algebra I

Some special subsets of tensors are Sym, all symmetric tensors; Skw, all skew tensors; Psym, all positive definite, symmetric tensors; Orth, all orthogonal tensors; Orth +, all rotations.

Tensors: Geometry and Applications

Preface Tensors are ubiquitous in the sciences. One reason for their ubiquity is that they provide a useful way to organize data. Geometry is a powerful tool for extracting information from data sets, and a beautiful subject in its own right.
