DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculusby H. M. Schey
Synopses & Reviews
Since the publication of the First Edition over thirty years ago, has been widely renowned for its clear and concise coverage of vector calculus, helping science and engineering students gain a thorough understanding of gradient, curl, and Laplacian operators without required knowledge of advanced mathematics.
Book News Annotation:
This work will help science and engineering students gain an understanding of the calculus vector operators divergence, gradient, curl, and Laplacian. This fourth edition preserves the book's informal writing style, moderately paced exposition, and avoidance of unnecessary mathematical rigor, and includes new examples and exercises and updated notation to bring the book in line with modern usage. The book can be used as a supplement to a variety of physics and engineering courses, from electromagnetic theory to fluid dynamics. Schey is Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
