DESCRIPTION
===========
The mattens package contains the definitions to typeset vectors
and tensors as used in the engineering community for the
representation of common vectors and tensors such as forces,
velocities, moments of inertia, etc.
This package adheres to the well-defined and documented notation
as proposed by Hassenpflug:.

Rectilinear Orthogonal Coordinates."
Comput. Math. Appl., vol. 26, no. 3, 1993, pp. 55–-93.
2. Hassenpflug, W.C., "Matrix Tensor Notation Part II.

BASIC INSTALLATION
====================
The minimum requirement to use the package is the to have
mattens.sty in a directory where TeX can find it.
For a basic installation on a TDS compliant system, move the
following files to the following directories:
<texmf>/tex/latex/mattens/
mattens.sty
<texmf>/source/latex/mattens/
mattens.ins
mattens.dtx
<texmf>/doc/latex/mattens/
