Excerpt
Excerpt: Chapter 1 - Matrices: 1.1 Einstein Summation Convention; Even though we shall not study vectors until chapter 2, we will introduce simple vectors now so that we can more easily understand the Einstein summation convention. We are often used to writing vectors in terms of unit basis vectors as ...
