Differentiation of vectors. Vector-valued functions. In the previous chapters we have considered real functions of several (usually two) variables f: D → R. Vector Calculus 1 - Differentiation. Calculus involving vectors is discussed in this section, rather intuitively at first and more formally toward. The area of mathematics known as vector calculus is used to model mathematically a In this Section we introduce briefly the differential calculus of vectors.

The definition of the derivative of a vector-valued function parallels that given for Differentiation of vector-valued functions can be done on a component-by-. In generalizing the idea of a derivative to vectors, we find several new types ordinary derivatives, but also the gradient, divergence and curl. Revision of vector algebra, scalar product, vector product. 2. Triple products, multiple products, applications to geometry. 3. Differentiation of vector functions.

Vector calculus is the fundamental language of mathematical physics. Many topics in the physical sciences can be analysed mathematically using the techniques of vector calculus. This book assumes no previous knowledge of vectors. However, it is assumed that the reader has a knowledge of basic calculus, including differentiation, integration and partial differentiation. Some knowledge of linear algebra is also required, particularly the concepts of matrices and determinants. Each of the eight chapters introduces a new topic, and to facilitate understanding of the material, frequent reference is made to physical applications. The physical nature of the subject is clarified with over sixty diagrams, which provide an important aid to the comprehension of the new concepts. Following the introduction of each new topic, worked examples are provided. Like much of mathematics, each section of the book is built on the foundations laid in the earlier sections and chapters.
