An extension of the concept of a tensor field

  1. Mar 17, 2005 #1
    It is known that a tensor field is a tensor-valued function T=T(p) whose argument p is a point of some space (or some manifold). However, in physics some tensor fields are produced from other tensor fields, e. g. Lagrangians in physical field theories including tensorial fields:

    L=L(p,T(p),\nabla T(p)).

    Exact mathematical treatement of such tensor fields with additional tensorial arguments is given in my paper


    I invite to discuss this paper and its possible applications. One can also use this paper in order to test his/her understanding of tensors at all.

    Applications to crystal physics are suggested

    Applications of extended tensor fields to describing the plasticity phenomenon in crystals are suggested. See


    There is an open problem formulated as a conjecture.

    An extension of the concept of spin-tensors

    The concept of spin-tensors can also be extended in the same way. See the following my paper:
