Math 321 homework : Spring 2004

Read the Notes on vectors FIRST and try out as many of the implicit and explicit exercises given there as possible.

  • 2005/10/27: Gradient, div, curl. The "del" operator (D, on this web page). Divergence and curl. Vector identities: D . (f v), D X (f v),etc.
    1. Calculate the divergence and the curl of r/r^3 (use vector identities for a slick calculation).
  • 2005/11/03: Further vector identities. Fundamental theorem(s) of vector calculus: Gauss, Green and Stokes theorems.
  • See notes on Vector Calculus and Complex Calculus for theory, example and exercises.
