Metric-independent analysis of the stress-energy tensor

Abstract : The stress-energy tensor of field theory is defined and analyzed in a geometric setting where a metric is not available. The stress is a linear mapping that transforms the three-form representing the flux of any given property, e.g., charge-current density, to the three-form representing the flux of energy. The example of the electromagnetic stress-energy tensor is given with the additional structure of a volume element.
