Essentials of tensor analysis
This section provides a compact exposition of tensor algebra and tensor analysis which are used as a mathematical background for presentation of the fundamentals of TLTDBS. In the recent years tensor analysis in the form without indices has been extensively utilised, however, this form will not be employed here in order to retain the initial form in which the results were obtained. Transition to the form without indices can be easily made and may be recommended as an exercise.
