1.4 Exercises 45 singular, trace, determinant, cofactor, and inverse. 1.52 Explain the way by which matrices are indexed. 1.53 How many indices are needed in indexing a 2 × 3 matrix, an n × n matrix, and an m × k matrix? Explain, in each case, why. 1.54 Does the order of the matrix indices matter? If so, what is the meaning of changing this order? 1.55 Is it possible to write a vector as a matrix? If so, what is the condition that should be imposed on the indices and how many forms a vector can have when it is written as a matrix? 1.56 Write down the following matrices in a standard rectangular array form (similar to the examples in Eq. 43) using conventional symbols for their entries with a proper indexing: 3 × 4 matrix A , 1 × 5 matrix B , 2 × 2 matrix C , and 3 × 1 matrix D . 1.57 Give detailed mathematical definitions of the determinant, trace and inverse of matrix, explaining any symbol or technical term involved in these definitions. 1.58 Find the following matrix multiplications: AB , BC , and CB where: A = 9 . 6 6 . 3 - 22 - 3 . 8 2 . 5 2 . 9 - 6 3 . 2 7 . 5 B = - 3 . 8 - 2 . 0 4 . 6 11 . 6 12 . 0 25 . 9 C = 3 8 . 4 61 . 3 - 5 - 33 5 . 9 1.59 Referring to the matrices A , B and C in the previous exercise, find all the permuta- tions (repetitive and non-repetitive) involving two of these three matrices, and classify them into two groups: those which do represent possible matrix multiplication and those which do not.

Chapter 2 Tensors In this chapter, we present the essential terms and definitions related to tensors, the conventions and notations which are used in their representation, the general rules that govern their manipulation, and their main types and classifications. We also provide some illuminating examples of tensors of various complexity as well as an overview of their use in mathematics, science and engineering.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
