    Default Tensors?

    I was reading this thread on LS1Tech -> http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showth...0&page=1&pp=20

    Is GM using tensor equations/matrices in VE calculations?? Seems like it would be logical....but advanced beyond me!

    Hmm..."tensor" as in multilinear function? Or, maybe as a table or field where each point constantly varies with respect to location of activity?....wow, I'd love to meet the engineer who pulled that off!

    i have some other ideas on solving it besides tensors, but if we could get a nice general method using tensors, that'd be great. we'd have one method to solve the problem with 6 or the full 17 or whatever it is parameters.

    redhardsupra,

    I am an engineer & willing to have a go (maybe foolish ;-). Please PM me & we can work out how we proceed together.

    Cheers,

    Acer

    It's been more than 20 years, and never had to apply tensors in all this time...
    I'm digging thru my old textbooks, but I'm away on a linux device drivers class this week.

    hey guys, do you have skype? it allows you to make conference call up to like 10 people, and i could show you how far i got and where i'm stuck. the cool part about it is that i can also send you files and type equations at the same time to all of you, which is way better than doing regular fone. what day/time would be good for you?
