Homework Help: Basic Tensor Video Lectures?

  1. Dec 13, 2007 #1

    Does anyone know of some basic video lectures covering tensors available online?

    Also, what is a good textbook for looking up some basic tensor examples? Maybe there is a place on the web with some good examples?

    Don't know of any myself. I have posted here looking for help with tensors as well, but have never really gotten a lot of support with it.

    To be honest with you I can't even say I have run across any really good, basic and clearly-explained texts on tensor math. I have several books, but none of them really come close to what I feel I need. I run into stumbling blocks with no way to get clarification, and end up confused and a bit frustrated, and have nowhere to turn for assistance.

    Ok....I didn't post here to rant....sorry. I would suggest you just do searches on google/dogpile/youtube, etc for videos for tensor math. I have not thought about this idea actually. So I may try it myself.

    I will subscribe to your thread and will post anything if I run across any information that may be of help to you. Furthermore, if anyone posts something helpful perhaps I can benefit from it as well.

    Thanks for posting your question, and good luck.
