Have you thought about including a chapter on tensor calculus and
differential geometry with reference to General Relativity? Dr. Myron
Evans writes that he has used maxima to prove a fundamental error in
Einstein's General Relativity - namely that torsion cannot be zero when
curvature in non-zero. The calculations are available in the papers
section of his website, aias.us. The implications for general relativity
of non-zero torsion appear to be wide-ranging and Dr. Evans has been
writing a lot of papers investigating those implications.
