"Tensor Calculus" while presenting the concepts and techniques begins with a brief introduction and history of tensors, followed by the study of systems of different orders, Einstein summation convention, kronecker symbol leading to the concepts of tensor algebra and tensor calculus. The authors conclude with a stimulating study in Riemannian geometry.
