with an Introduction to the Theory of Relativity

J.C. Kolecki

Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio

I'm currently reading the above monograph and I am attempting to teach myself TENSOR ANALYSIS. I have an undergraduates' degree in chemistry and a university level understanding of mathematics up to differential equations and some complex analysis. I've also taken introductory quantum chemistry so I have some facility - albeit incomplete - for mathematical formalism.

I can follow Mr. Kolecki's approach somewhat but get lost when he attempts to Q.E.D. some things. For clarity please see the attached file.
