Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book concentrates the introduction of mathematical representation of spherical vector and tensor fields. Vector/tensor spherical harmonics are used throughout mathematics. This book is a valuable reference for scientists and practitioners when facing spherical problems." (Chengshu Wang, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1167, 2009)
