An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists

During my years of studying mathematical physics I spent much time trying to connect the rigorous but abstract mathematics found in pure math texts with the hands-on but fuzzy treatment of that same mathematics in physics texts. This book is the result of that process. The first edition came out in 2011, and the second in 2015.
