    How to evaluate surface integral of tensor

    I have a volume integral that I've rewritten as a surface integral using Guass' theorem. The surface is that of a sphere. How do I actually compute the integral if the integrand is a tensor?

    Thankful for any suggestions.

    The integral of a tensor, in a given coordinate system, is the tensor whose entries are the integrals of the entries of the original tensor.
