Item description for Tensor and Vector Analysis: Geometry, Mechanics and Physics by A.T. Fomenko, V.V. Trofimov & O V Manturnov...
Reflecting the significant contributions of Russian mathematicians to the field, this book contains a selection of papers on tensor and vector analysis. It is divided into three parts, covering Hamiltonian systems, Riemannian geometry and calculus of variations, and topology. The range of applications of these topics is very broad, as many modern geometrical problems recur across a wide range of fields, including mechanics and physics as well as mathematics. Many of the approaches to problems presented in this volume will be novel to the Western reader, although questions are of global interest. The main achievements of the Russian school are placed in the context of the development of each individual subject.

Gives Russian mathematicians their due Apr 17, 2004
Tensor and vector analysis in a Euclidean space gives very elegant and powerful tools for the study of physical systems. Most of the papers in this book will be of interest to physicists. The emphasis is not so much on pure mathematics, but on studying real problems in physics. Quite possibly, engineers dealing in control systems theory and complex dynamical systems may also benefit from some papers.
The book is useful at a graduate and postgraduate level, in bringing forth ideas that go well beyond the standard graduate texts on this subject.
It also helps gives Russian mathematicians their proper due outside Russia. During the Cold War, their contributions were often unknown outside the Soviet Bloc.
