Tensor index exercises

  1. May 17, 2009 #1
    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. But what I actually need is just a collection of exercises to work on.

    You should be able to find plenty, with solutions and answers.

    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.
