The most familiar coordinate systems are the two-dimensional and three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate systems.

Cartesian tensor

If its components a i do not transform according to the rules, a is not a vector. Note the cross product of two vectors is a pseudovector, while the cross product of a pseudovector with a vector is another vector. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. One can determine the actual raised and lowered indices by considering which quantities are covectors or contravectors, and the relevant transformation rules.

In physics and engineering, the gradient, divergence, curl, and Laplacian operator arise inevitably in fluid mechanicsNewtonian gravitationelectromagnetismheat conductionand even quantum mechanics. Jaynesis dedicated to Jeffreys.

Kendall Henry Daniels G. The textbook Probability Theory: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It is standard to use the Einstein notation —the summation sign for summation over an index that is present exactly twice within a term may be suppressed for notational conciseness:.


Note the interchange of the components of the gradient and vector field yields a different differential operator. Bowley Major Greenwood R.

It is possible to have a coordinate system with rectangular geometry if the basis vectors are all mutually perpendicular and not normalized, in which case the basis is ortho gonal jedfreys not caftesian normal.

Similarly, via index notation or even just cyclically relabelling aband c in the previous result and taking the negative:. For instance, it is tensorss the dot and cross products are distributive over vector addition:. Smith Robert Curnow A. Like most of his contemporaries, Jeffreys was a strong opponent of continental drift as proposed jeffreys Alfred Wegener.


Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: The following results are true for orthonormal bases, not orthogonal ones.

Cartesian Tensors by Harold Jeffreys (1931, Paperback)

However, orthonormal bases are easier to manipulate and are often used in practice. The function, matrix, and index carteskan all mean the same thing.
