Scalars, Vectors & Tensors

Scalar: Quantity that is invariant in itself (does not depend on any referential) Also known

as a zeroth order tensor.

Vector: Quantity that possess both a direction and a magnitude located somewhere in

space. It is a first order tensor.

v

v = a1e1 + a2 e2 + a3e3 = a '1 e'1 + a ' 2 e'2 +a '3 e'3

Note: A vector possesses two invariants with respect to coordinate space:

v , and its direction.

Its magnitude, v

Higher order tensors

2nd order tensor: An ordered set of nine numbers, each of which possessing 2

directions. An helpful analogy would be to imagine a vector whose three components

each would be a vector. A tensor of order n can be reprensented by 3n numbers in

tridimensional space. It is a matrix of dimension n. A 2nd possesses 3 invariants which

are the coefficients of its characteristic polynomial arising from det T I = 0 . The

trace and the determinant of the tensor are two of its 3 invariants. In general, a tensor

of order n will have n+1 invariants.

Dyadic Product (Tensor Product)

A1 = A11e1 + A21e2 + A31e3 A3 = A13e1 + A23e2 + A33e3 2nd order

A2 = A12 e1 + A22 e2 + A32 e3

etc.

A

A= Ai ei = A'i e'i

i =1 i= 1

y

The projection of the vector on the axis, x, y, z can each

be decomposed in the basis (x, y, z). The relation y

between each of the components is then given by: x x

Ax = a11 A' x + a21 A' y + a31 A' z Ai = aij A' j

Ay = a12 A' x + a22 A' y + a32 A' z

Dot and Cross products

Definition of dot product:

v v 3 3 3 3 3 3 3

A B = Ai ei B j e j = Ai B j ei e j = Ai B j ij = Ai Bi

i= 1 j =1 i= 1 j =1 i =1 j = 1 i= 1

Where ij is the Kronecker delta, a 2nd

order tensor.

Does it hold in tensor notation? 3

Lets test it using a change of coordinate: Ai = aij A' j

j =1

v v 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3

A B = aki A'k ek alj B'l el = akialj A'k B'l kl

i=1 k =1 j= 1 l =1 i =1 j =1 k =1 l =1

v v 3 3

one cartesian referential to another, then A B = Ai Bi = A'k B'k

i =1 k =1

(Einstein notation)

Dot and Cross product (cont.)

ij = aki alj kl expanded yields:

a112 + a122 + a132 = 1 a21a31 + a22 a32 + a23a33 = 0

a212 + a22

2 2

+ a23 = 1 a31a11 + a32 a12 + a33a13 = 0

a312 + a322 + a332 = 1 a11a21 + a12 a22 + a13 a23 = 0

These are the normalization and the orthogonality conditions that any

orthonormal base respects.

Definition of cross product:

v v 3 3 3 3 3 3 3

A B = Ai ei B j e j = Ai B j ei e j = Ai B j ijk ek

i= 1 j=1 i =1 j = 1 i = 1 j= 1 k =1

Where ijk is called the Levi-Civita density and is the cross product

equivalent of the Kroneker delta, ij , for the dot product. It is a third order

tensor. 0, i=j, j=k, or i=k

Practical problem: How to set up a tensor

and find the components of the Youngs Moduli

Practical problem: How to set up a tensor

from physical reasoning? (cont.)

We need to compute the 4 matrix elements:

F1 u1 : E11 = E x cos

F1 u2 : E12 = E x sin F1 E x cos E x sin u1

F2 u1 : E 21 = E y sin = E sin E y cos u2

F2 y

F2 u2 : E 22 = E y cos

Conclusion

2nd order tensors establish relation between two sets of vectors.

Ex: Vectors in one cartesian space vs vectors in another, but ALSO

vectors from the displacement vector space to the force vector space

(as we just saw).

Higher order tensors fulfill the same role but with tensors instead

of vectors

The divergence of a tensor reduces its order by one. The gradient

of a tensor increases it order by one. The Curl of a tensor yields a

tensor of the same order.
