Request for help and/or comments
 
Hello all. I've been studying QM for some time, and it's going well but it is lacking mostly because I'm having a very difficult time grasping the finer points of tensors and differential spaces. Let me start with this - could someone please kind of give me, or direct me toward, a tour of basic Minkowski space? I would be greatly appreciative.

well here are all the websites i use for tensor calculus, etc.:

http://people.uncw.edu/lugo/COURSES/DiffGeom/dg1.htm
http://<br /> http://people.hofstra.../tc.html<br />

those two are pretty good and fairly rigorous. If you go to:

http://<br /> http://www.geocities....ist.html<br />

You will find many links to online mathematics resources. Look under geometry for differential geometry, there is some good stuff there, and under mathematical physics as well.

For the best treatment of MInkowski space that i have found online yet go to:
