"Introduction to vector analysis" (Harry F. Davis, 1961) page 284 says:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Tensor analysis for physicists by J.A.Schouten 1951" is not intended so much for physicists as for applied mathematicians. This author knows of no book on tensor analysis written in a modern style for pure mathematicians."

I am reading Davis's book at the moment (its vector part is very good), which only talks about tenosr in about two pages. Why did Davis criticize Schouten (a famous physicist? but I did not read his book) so seriously?
