This begins with a slight reinterpretation of that theorem. Part IA | Vector Calculus Based on lectures by B. Allanach Notes taken by Dexter Chua Lent 2015 These notes are not endorsed by the lecturers, and I have modi ed them (often signi cantly) after lectures. The derivative of a(u) with respect to u is deﬂned as da du = lim ¢u ! GB Arfken and HJ Weber, Mathematical Methods for Physicists, (Academic Press). Students who take this course are expected to already know single-variable differential and integral calculus to the level of an introductory college calculus course. Don't show me this again.

(Also useful for JH SoCM) ML Boas, Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences, (Wiley). 1.2 Vector Components and Dummy Indices Let Abe a vector in R3. You should be able to interpret the formulae describing physical systems in terms of this intuition. 5 0 obj In vector (or multivariable) calculus, we will deal with functions of two or three variables (usually x,y or x,y,z, respectively). 2. Since the course is an experimental one and the notes written before the lectures are delivered, there will inevitably be some sloppiness, disorganization, and even egregious blunders—not to mention the issue of clarity in exposition. Students should also be familiar with matrices, and be able to compute a three-by-three determinant. ?6�8�8pI*/�T�H��w��;� �ن�V��Ų�����8�4�/�k��I�r���y ��5�8k�^�W��X��M�f�����/����MZ��AE�>8����ȑ6�`y��en��Z�b:7)�� \$0�غ ���AA�/ ��.s�ŷ�;N[H�!�At��0{�>��8�f�*�!q^��"Lx c�5@�P����գR���U���&A�9[\$�/��F�D�M�9�^�����E���:2~�" ���8�0�y���xuL�`��` stream ��1"��� <> PC Matthews, Vector Calculus, (Springer). The present document does not substitute the notes taken in class, where more examples and proofs are provided and where the content is discussed in greater detail. As the set fe^ igforms a basis for R3, the vector A may be written as a linear combination of the e^ i: A= A 1e^ 1 + A 2e^ 2 + A 3e^ 3: (1.13) The three numbers A i, i= 1;2;3, are called the (Cartesian) components of the vector A.

You should have a good intuition of the physical meaning of the various vector calculus operators and the important related theorems. Vector Calculus 16.1 Vector Fields This chapter is concerned with applying calculus in the context of vector ﬁelds.

Eventually things became clearer and I discovered that, once I had really understood the ‘simple’ bits of the subject, the rest became relatively easy. Vector Calculus In this chapter we develop the fundamental theorem of the Calculus in two and three dimensions. These notes will contain most of the material covered in class, and be distributed before each lecture (hopefully). The graph of a function of two variables, say, z=f(x,y), lies in Euclidean space, which in the Cartesian coordinate system consists of all ordered triples of real numbers (a,b,c). �� This is one of over 2,200 courses on OCW. These notes are meant to be a support for the vector calculus module (MA2VC/MA3VC) taking place at the University of Reading in the Autumn term 2016. %PDF-1.2 Consider the endpoints a; b of the interval [a b] from a to b as the boundary of that interval. �vG�����Ź�L,��=_>�z���v?������w;~��O��/�������\}�x���U���;��{�����n��|z���q�x���鋫���-��Ӌ�?���~�������?�O˘�b���Z�����R~==�"��j�u�(��?9������xi�ڻ��O�|��ӫ������0�7q��k�HX�䋍���`a����s\��^�� �tVY����7~[ox�4fQʣ�,�K���7�ƟLk��e���\�g������a��\Y���(��v=��?>���ar�/g̙�s��|��p��u�����*\$�\�qz�hn�q%8���z���y}�}�q���ר����+��(�/�'�y��u�����8��bA��\$�ea�w2Ћ( �%�5��m���9�t�o�!/��y*��>EV}]��g�5�T~�m�}����ѡޠ2��GV�"IU����*�ឮ��uHh�����A[n��?�Y���YGT֜0��e�N��8iXX��(NI��������5ݐQY���HTzk�z䢵">e���ioӫ[A7�~9�s�4tvr� �lcS�!��1��q��(��!

This book is lazily referred to as “Riley” throughout these notes (sorry, Drs H and B) You will all have this book, and it covers all of the maths of this course. They are nowhere near accurate representations of what was actually lectured, and in particular, all errors are almost surely mine. A two-dimensional vector ﬁeld is a function f that maps each point (x,y) in R2 to a two-dimensional vector hu,vi, and similarly a three-dimensional vector ﬁeld maps (x,y,z) to hu,v,wi.
