Decomposition of the scalar product of two symmetric tensors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A simple method is given for the decomposition of the scalar product of two symmetric tensors into products of their irreducible components, which leads also to an explicit recipe for a set of irreducible components of a symmetric tensor. Applications to dipole-dipole interaction and electrostatic multipole interaction are discussed.
