This volume offers a working knowledge of the fundamentals of matrix and tensor calculus that can be applied to a variety of fields. Relevant to mathematicians, physicists, meteorologists, and electrical engineers, its contents are of particular value to mechanical and aeronautical engineers, who will find information on vibrations, aircraft flutter, elasticity, hydrodynamics, and fluid mechanics. Each section of the two-part treatment is self-contained. The first part concerns matrix calculus and its applications; the second, tensor calculus and its applications. Both sections feature an introduction with a concise presentation of mathematical concepts, and more advanced mathematical ideas are developed within the context of applications. Students and professionals alike will appreciate this book's skillful combination of clear, precise mathematical statements and immediate practical applications.
