comment Convected 2nd order tensor in component form
Regardless, I think this question is best suited for the Math SE site, since it is primarily focused on understanding the notation rather than any computational method.

comment Convected 2nd order tensor in component form
I'm not quite sure I understand your notation convention... As I recall, the gradient of a tensor is a rank 3 tensor. If $v$ is a vector, then how is $v\cdot\nabla a$ defined?

@ApprenticeQueue: Isn't all mathematics essentially a collection of reductionist arguments?

Interesting. Does the expression $4\pi\epsilon_0=1$ mean anything, physically?

@sashang: It is difficult to say one way or another if this is an oversimplification or not without establishing a rigorous and unambiguous definition of the word "branch" as it is applied by the OP's question. If you can provide such a definition, I can respond to your "oversimplification" claim more adequately, one way or another.

@SpYk3HH: The point is that the lines are blurred nonetheless, in spite of what most people believe of both subjects.
