The focus of the course *Tensor analysis* lies mainly on acquiring an understanding of the principles and ideas of the direct (component-free) tensor language, which is widely used in many courses.

**Content:**

Tensor algebra, theory of tensor functions and tensor analysis are introduced. The symmetries of tensors and tensor functions are considered. The course emphasizes the application of tensor algebra and calculus to a wide variety of applied areas from engineering and physics.
