“Dr. Neuenschwander has written the book I wish I could have read when I was learning mathematical physics. It is colloquial yet authoritative, with many treasures lurking within the chapters. The book brings a breath-taking cohesion to the varied ideas about vectors and tensors that are typically spread across the undergraduate’s school terms haphazardly. It is the book I’ll want to have nearby next time I teach special or general relativity, or upper-level electromagnetism or rotational dynamics, as much for the historical tidbits and definitive examples, as for its asides about vocabulary and conventions and for its bibliography.”

“This book is well written and has sufficient rigor to allow students to use it for independent study.”

“An introductory Tensor Calculus for Physics book is a most welcome addition… Professor Neuenschwander’s book fills the gap in robust fashion.”
