DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus
This book satisfies the desire for derivation and motivation over rigor. Read this is an evening to get ready for prelims.
While the small size makes for a quick and easy read, it certainly would not hurt gtad the next edition was bumped up to pages. Aug 21, Umair Hasan added it. Paperbackpages.
Although the author has justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the insertion of more examples, I still think that they are not enough. These restrictions are just enough to justify a 4-star rating, although I would gladly give it an easy 5-star rating if it divv just a bit more examples. Div grad curl was an incredible experience to me. Jun 16, Adam Lantos rated it really liked it.
This book is all about intuition rather than rigor. Steve rated it really liked it Aug 19, Don’t miss out on IV though: Lists with This Book. I also found my understanding of calculus to improve as a result of doing them. I’ve read that mathematicians prefer proofs, physicists derivations. The author builds the way up from geometric considerations grxd eventually deriving the div, grad, curl and laplacian operators of vector calculus hence the title.
Open Preview See a Problem? I highly recommend it. Apr 24, Andrew rated it really liked it Recommends it for: It starts out by explicitly setting a goal to find the electric field due to any distribution of charges, and then it approaches the goal step by step, introducing the concepts of vector calculus to overcome the obstacles one by one, in a very logical progression.
Along the way you also learn theorems that are not so closely tied to the goal. This book explained the mysteries hinted at in the other book. Very unclear grd at times rgad very big logical steps missing. Published January 1st by W. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

An extremely useful book for vector calculus that you’ll probably go back to more than once especially if you’re into Physics. I ran across the Vector Function derivatives in the title in a physics book.
Arc rated it really liked it Jun 25, Readers just need to know some basic calculus and a glimpse of multivariable calculus to understand it all. It also helps build intuitions for calculus courses which are more rigorous, since the author specifies in what sense he is being “sloppy” by stating what are needed to make some arguments work in rigorous manner.
These kind of examples are simply not here. I also found the practice problems to be really helpful, as they are not overly-difficult and tend to reinforce the most important concepts.
Mar 30, sqrt2 rated it it was amazing. May 01, Jeff rated it wchey not like it. As a second point, I will say that applications to other subjects would have been a pleasant and welcome change from the many applications to electromagnetism.
Although the author has justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the ins This book is all about intuition rather than rigor. A lot of meaningful things could be added as there are a lot of topics that beg for this kind of basic yet highly intuitive and pictorial exposition. Sep hrad, Rakibullah Sazib rated it really liked it.
The exercises represent a good range of difficulty, and the informal style of writing makes the concepts easy to grasp in the absence of classroom instruction.
Almost always they make you go back to the text of the chapter for a second read. This book is definitely no substitute for more rigorous proofs and derivations, but it would be a great refresher, and is a perfect companion piece grav quite a few subjects. It makes me wonder why people bother searching for enlightenment in ancient tomes. Nov 25, Teressa marked cul as to-read.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. And the reason is that most of them are trivial. A lot of ckrl mean that you better understand what the author says. The book also shows the concepts applied to electromagnetism for which vector calculus was originally developed. Non-rigorous derivations that are so intuitive that it will be easy for everyone to reproduce them and schye really understand the basic ideas behind them.
