A good book for tensor notation...

  1. Feb 19, 2016 #1
    I am doing my M.sc in physics.. In my course I have classical field theory and electrodynamics... I need to learn tensor notations to understand the above subjects....
    Please tell me about some good introductory books to learn tensor notation to handle things in electrodynamics and classical field theory.....

    What do you mean by "tensor notation". If it's the "index gymnastics" of the Ricci calculus, you can take, e.g., Landau-Lifshitz vol. II (covers fundamental classical electrodynamics and general relativity). IMHO it's the best intro textbook for these topics.
