In the fourth webinar of this series, we’re discussing tensor calculus itself. Since the essence of differential calculus is a study of how infinitesimal changes affect scalar functions, extending this study to vectors and tensors leads to the Christoffel symbols (connection coefficients) that...

In a series of five webinars, Dr. Robert Lopez will present the essential ideas of the tensor calculus. The central concepts are contained in three sections: Preliminaries from Multivariate Calculus, Tensor Algebra, and Tensor Calculus. In the third webinar of this series, we investigate the ques...

In the second installment of the Essentials of Tensor Calculus series, Dr. Robert Lopez will explain reciprocal vectors and show that bases of tangents and gradients are reciprocal. This is important because these distinctions underpin the difference between contravariance and covariance. The transi...

In this webinar, we will look at the Rayleigh quotient for finding eigenvalues of symmetric matrices, and its relation to the Rayleigh-Ritz technique for approximating solutions of the Sturm-Liouville eigenvalue problem. The gap between optimization and approximating eigenvalues of an ODE is spanned...
