Tensorial Formulation of the Problem
Tensors have been largely utilized in the analysis of electric circuits. Especially, Gabriel Kron  has been the very first author to deal with tensors extensively in circuit analysis. He also introduced tensors with his tearing method of analysis (Diakoptics) into discrete systems. Sokolnikoff  and many others [21, 22, 23, 24] indicated the power of tensors in continuum mechanics. J.W. Soule  employed tensors in piping flexibility analysis. S.F. Borg  slightly touched tensors in structural analysis.
