520    This book presents the fundamentals of modern tensor 
       calculus for students in engineering and applied physics, 
       emphasizing those aspects that are crucial for applying 
       tensor calculus safely in Euclidian space and for grasping
       the very essence of the smooth manifold concept. After 
       introducing the subject, it provides a brief exposition on
       point set topology to familiarize readers with the subject,
       especially with those topics required in later chapters. 
       It then describes the finite dimensional real vector space
       and its dual, focusing on the usefulness of the latter for
       encoding duality concepts in physics. Moreover, it 
       introduces tensors as objects that encode linear mappings 
       and discusses affine and Euclidean spaces. Tensor analysis
       is explored first in Euclidean space, starting from a 
       generalization of the concept of differentiability and 
       proceeding towards concepts such as directional derivative,
       covariant derivative and integration based on differential
       forms. The final chapter addresses the role of smooth 
       manifolds in modeling spaces other than Euclidean space, 
       particularly the concepts of smooth atlas and tangent 
       space, which are crucial to understanding the topic. Two 
       of the most important concepts, namely the tangent bundle 
       and the Lie derivative, are subsequently worked out.
