Dear all,
I'm reading the GR book by Ray D'Inverno. I would like to do some additional exercises
about tensors. I can get the Schaum Outline on tensors. Is there any other book or online resource where I can find additional exercises to get more familiar with tensor manipulations?

Thanks.

Thanks. But what I actually need is just a collection of exercises to work on.

Thanks! That's right I had a look at the exam questions and there's always an exercise on tensors...

Tensor Analysis for Physicists by JA Schouten

Tensor calculus by JL Synge and A Schild
http://books.google.com/books?id=SjKoMuMdB4oC (the preview is messed up.. it seems mashed up with a book on hieroglyphics)

The above books are written by relativists who were among to first emphasize the geometrical structure of relativity.


A useful exercise is to derive the standard form of Maxwell Equations from the Electromagnetic Field Tensor.
