Covectors and Dyadics in Spacetime

Generalisations of Vectors
  • E. G. Peter Rowe
Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


In Chapter 2, vectors, the elements of ν, were introduced and used to discuss many kinematical problems. The kinematical applications followed immediately from the original definition of vectors as a class of displacements in spacetime. In Chapter 3 the very slightly more general space of vectors was used to consider particle momentum.
