Third Order Tensors in Physics and Mechanics

Chapter
Part of the Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics book series (AMMA, volume 39)

Abstract

Third order tensors have wide applications in physics and mechanics. Examples include piezoelectric tensors in crystal study, third order symmetric traceless tensors in liquid crystal study and third order susceptibility tensors in nonlinear optics study. On the other hand, the Levi-Civita tensor is famous in tensor calculus.
