Ricci-Calculus: An Introduction to Tensor Analysis and Its Geometrical Applications Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften: : Jan Arnoldus Schouten: Libros en 5/5(6). It assumes a holonomic basis, which the Ricci calculus does not require The term "normal" (orthogonal) has no meaning in the absence of a metric tensor ; Ricci calculus does not need one The term "inner product" similarly does not apply (it is not the same thing as a contraction, which corresponds to the action of a covector on a vector)(Rated B-class, High-importance): .

absolute tensor calculus was the name used by Ricci. Schouten formalized the changes and extensions that Einstein needed for the ART, so Schouten () Der Ricci-Kalkül should be considered a final summarization of the tensor calculus in gravitational physics and differential geometry before WWII and the Manhattan project Riemann curvature tensor = ((∂, ∂) ∂) Torsion tensor = − − which follows from = ∇ − ∇ − [,] where X and Y are vector fields and [, ] is the Lie bracket of vector fields.. Levi-Civita tensor. The covariant Levi-Civita tensor in an n-D metric space may be defined as the unique (up to a sign) n-form (completely antisymmetric order-n covariant tensor) that obeys the relation.

The method of calculation is the absolute differential calculus, or tensor analysis, of M. M. G. Ricci (–, Italian), which was noted earlier in connection with the general progress of recent mathematics toward structure. The Ricci calculus, however, originated in the algebra of quadratic differential forms. Tensor analysis, branch of mathematics concerned with relations or laws that remain valid regardless of the system of coordinates used to specify the quantities. Such relations are called covariant. Tensors were invented as an extension of vectors to formalize the manipulation of geometric entities arising in the study of mathematical manifolds.. A vector is an entity that has .
