Abstract : The fundamentals of the physical tensor and its analysis in the ndimensional vector space V sub n are set up. The ncoordinate networks, the local and dual nsystems, the nspace derivative, the first and second curvature tensors in Vn and the space derivatives of field tensors of arbitrary order with respect to the ncurvilinearoblique coordinate networks, are discussed and presented in both the magnitude and the absolute notations. As application, the generalization of the equation of the general balance to the fourdimensional vector space V sub 4 yields the nonconservative, specialrelativistic theory of continuum electromechanics.
