Reviews

'This is both helpful and innovative ... Fleisch's book is an excellent and challenging resource for students in this subject area.' Optics and Photonics News 'In the reviewer's experience it takes students a long time to get a feeling for what vectors and especially tensors are, and in this respect this book is very useful: it helps them become confident in using and applying these concepts ... Each chapter concludes with a section of problems and, moreover, the author supplies an interactive website and a series of audio podcasts. In the reviewer's opinion this book will certainly become as popular as the author's book A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations which uses the same approach.' Rabe von Randow, Zentralblatt MATH 'This highly readable introductory book will be of great assistance to those taking undergraduate or graduate courses and meeting tensors for the first time.' George Matthews, Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (ima.org.uk)
