Abstract : The introduction of the physical tensor permits the extension of the concept of the scalar invariant of a tensor to that of tensor invariants, themselves tensors of arbitrary order. The fundamentals of the invariant theory of the physical tensor are sketched out, later applied to the invariant differential operators and the generalized relations existing between differential invariants, formed from the first and second tensor derivatives of a field vector and of a second-order tensor.
