Vector analysis and cartesian tensors. 3. ed. (English) Zbl 0781.53013
London: Chapman & Hall. xii, 304 p. (1992).
The previous editions have been reset completely. Some small but important teaching points are included, to improve the notation and the diagrams, and to introduce some new material. The kinematics section has been extended to deal with the existence and nature of angular velocity. A new section on the application of vector analysis in optimization theory has been added. For a review of the German translation of the first edition see Zbl 0256.53011.
