Tensor Analysis and Elementary Differential Geometry for Physicists and Engineers (Paperback) (Hung
About this item
This book comprehensively presents topics, such as Dirac notation, tensor analysis, elementary differential geometry of a moving surface, andk-differential forms. Additionally, two new chapters of Cartan differential forms and Dirac (bra-ket) and Schrödinger notations used in quantum mechanics are added to this second edition. The reader is provided with hands-on calculations and worked-out examples at which he will learn how to handle the bra-ket notation, tensors, differential geometry, and differential forms; and to apply them to the physical and engineering world. Many methods and applications are given in CFD, continuum mechanics, electrodynamics in special relativity, cosmology in the Minkowski four-dimensional spacetime, and relativistic and non-relativistic quantum mechanics.
Tensors, differential geometry, differential forms, and Dirac notation are very useful advanced mathematical tools in many fields of modern physics and computational engineering including special and general relativity physics, quantum mechanics, cosmology, electrodynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and continuum mechanics.
The target audience of this book primarily comprises graduate students in mathematics, physics, engineering, research scientists, and practicing engineers.
