I tried learning tensor analysis from the above two categories but, for the most part, failed, i.e., learned the rules of moving indices around but had no real idea as to what I was actually doing. This brings me to Pavel Grinfeld's "Introduction to Tensor Analysis and the Calculus of /5(62). An introduction to the differential geometry of surfaces in the large provides students with ideas and techniques involved in global research. Part 2 introduces the concept of a tensor, first in algebra, then in calculus. It covers the basic theory of the absolute calculus and the .

LECTURES ON DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY. This is a collection of lecture notes which I put together while teaching courses on manifolds, tensor analysis, and differential geometry. (elementary differential geometry and tensor calculus) as presented in these notes. I see it as a natural continuation of analytic geometry and calculus. I think i'm right in saying that another way to describe 'tensor analysis on manifolds' is 'differential geometry'. I think it might take me 10 years to work through Frankels text! That book is about much more than the background you need for classical gtr.

I don't know what I should take from these lectures and notes and what part of the work to focus on in order to start practicing as soon as possible. I want to learn tensor calculus in order to study more advanced mathematics and physics such as; General. Natural Operations in Differential Geometry.

This book is a monographical work on natural bundles and natural operators in differential geometry and this book tries to be a rather comprehensive textbook on all basic structures from the theory of jets which appear in different branches of differential geometry.

In mathematics, tensor calculus, tensor analysis, or Ricci calculus is an extension of vector calculus to tensor fields (tensors that may vary over a manifold, e.g.

in spacetime).

In a couple of video lectures i saw this very book being used by the tutor and i paused the video streaming to read the title /5(63). Plus, Tensor Calculus is really just a corollary to Differential Geometry.

EDIT: I usually don't do DG, I typically stick to Algebraic Geometry (which are both structurally similar thanks to Grothendieck), so I can't recommend the best introductory book.
