This is a course on vector and tensor analysis. Spend your effort wisely in understanding the principles you are being taught before you begin to look for patterns to match. You are yet to understand something as simple as the volume of a parellelpiped! There are a number of basic ideas you should master first! ]]>

The solution for this,shown in week 3 pg29 using the levi civita.

I have checked that any 2×2 matrix taken from the Original 3×3 matrix. Its determinant(of the 2×2) is the final answer. I tested it using its application in Week 8 pg27. And i also tested that if there are two shared indexes it works. Since you would use your kronecker substitution.

So does this rule apply generally??

Furthermore, in Q&A 1.35 it was shown that,

These four ways of seeing the result should be obvious to you from Week Two lectures. You need to go back and work through that in order to have a fighting chance in the exams.

]]>1. Learn Latex and write your questions to me in Latex.

2. Write your questions by hand, denoting vectors with a bar, tensors with a double bar. Take a scan of the question on a Google drive and send a link to the scanned file.

If you are making a reference to a specific item treated in the book, slides, tutorials or programming clinics, use this reference strategy: Chapter 3, Page 34 equation 5 is self explanatory; S8.15 will mean the week 8 slides, page 15; Tutorial 3.46 is tutorial 3 page 46; PC3.5 is the programming clinic slide 3, page 5.

If you do not do any of these, you will need a witch to automatically know what is in your mind! I am not a witch! ]]>

in slide7 page 26 the solution you solved i dont understand how the denominator of the trace was removed ]]>

=( ⊗ 1 , 2, 3 + 1, ⊗ 2 , 3 + 1, 2, ⊗ 3) / (1, 2, 3)

I dont really understand how to get to the next step from the one above

=1/1(1, 2, 3 + 1, 2, 3 + 1, 3, 3)

= 1 ⋅ 23 + 31 ⋅ 2 + 12

⋅ 3

= 1 ⋅ 2311 + 3122 ⋅ 2 + 1233 ⋅ 3 =

= ⋅ v

I also could not get the T in the first equation to show using Latex although I typed it in
