By Gabriel Weinreich

Every complex undergraduate and graduate pupil of physics needs to grasp the options of vectors and vector research. but such a lot books conceal this subject through basically repeating the introductory-level remedy in line with a constrained algebraic or analytic view of the subject.

Geometrical Vectors introduces a extra subtle strategy, which not just brings jointly many free ends of the conventional therapy, but in addition leads without delay into the sensible use of vectors as a rule curvilinear coordinates through rigorously keeping apart these relationships that are topologically invariant from these which aren't. in accordance with the basically geometric nature of the topic, this method builds continuously on scholars' previous wisdom and geometrical intuition.

Written in an off-the-cuff and private sort, Geometrical Vectors presents a convenient advisor for any scholar of vector research. transparent, conscientiously built line drawings illustrate key issues within the textual content, and challenge units in addition to actual examples are provided.
