Tensor analysis is an essential tool in any science (e.g. engineering, physics, mathematical biology) that employs a continuumdescription. This concise text offers a straightforward treatment ofthe subject suitable for the student or practicing engineerLet us find the equation for the eigenvalues. A vector in the osculating plane can be represented as xru + yr v since (r^ , ) is a basis in it. By definition of A we have A . (xru + yrv) = xnu + ynv. On the other hand xru + yrv ^ 0 is an eigenvector ifanbsp;...
