List of index notation properties ?

    list of index notation properties ??

    Is there a list of index notation properties somewhere on the web ??

    I'm just looking for a pdf file that I can reference while manipulating tensors using index notation (and summation convention). I'm not looking for proofs at all, just a quick reference sheet, if one exists.

    THanks in advance.

    Depends on what you are looking for. I.e. what are "index manipulations"?
    Do they include (Kronecker) delta's and (Levi-Civita) epsilon's?
    Raising and lowering of indices?
    Covariant differentiation?
    Transformation properties under coordinate changes?

    That's right, I'm looking for a reference sheet that has as many properties (like the ones you quoted) as possible. Even if there's 4 separate sources that each have some of the above properties listed, that would be helpful too.

    Thank you!
