I have completed writing what I consider to be an introductory text for applied mathematicians, physicists and engineers. The finished work is titled

INTRODUCTION TO TENSOR CALCULUS and CONTINUUM MECHANICS

In Part One I have included introductory topics in tensors, differential geometry and relativity. Part Two presents basics from the areas of continuum mechanics (dynamics, elasticity, fluids, electricity, magnetism). The final section covers an introduction to quaternions, multvectors and Clifford algebra.

You can purchase the final version of this project by Clicking Here Catalogue number is 01-0535. book

The free version below represents about 80% of the final version.
From this free version you can see what you are getting.

What the final version has that the free version does not have:

1. Additional worked examples.
2. Additional exercise problems.
3. A final section on quaternions, multivectors and Clifford algebra.
4. An Appendix D which contains solutions to 70% of the exercise problems.
5. An updated bibliography.
6. An updated index.



The final version can also be ordered through the following bookstores:
Barnes and Noble
Amazon Books
Chapters (Canada's largest on-line merchant)
Borders
Trafford's Internet Bookstore.

If you have problems finding it, then give them the following

Some individuals are having problems in printing in the PDF format-
fonts corrupted or missing, etc.
This is a known problem in printing PDF files on certain printers.
One suggested solution- try printing at a lower resolution.
For additional help check out the web sites:

I assure you that all fonts are embedded within the above documents.
You will have to solve your own printing problems.
For those having difficulty in printing PDF files
I have added the above postscript files for downloading.
