Publisher Synopsis

'... future authors will owe a great debt to Professors Hestenes and Sobczyk for this pioneering work.' Foundations of Physics, 16, 1986 'I repeat that GC enriches and simplifies everything it touches, not just on an advanced level but also, and perhaps even more so, on an elementary level. I am convinced that GC should be taught to undergraduate in place of the traditional approaches to vector algebra and analysis.' James S. Marsh in American Journal of Physics 'If the physics community seizes the opportunity represented by this book, and I hope it does, this book will become the handbook and the bible of GC.' American Journal of Physics, 53:5 (1985) Read more...
