Horrible description of surface integrals. 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 for quite a few subjects. Jun 13, Mostafa Alkady rated it it was amazing. I really dig it. Non-rigorous derivations that are so intuitive that it will be easy for everyone to reproduce them and actually really understand the basic ideas behind them.
Jul 07, Frank rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ideal for the physics student who wants to develop their intuition for the basic theorems of vector calculus. Open Preview See a Problem? Arc rated it really liked it Jun 25, A proof dkv reassure you that a theorem is true, cyrl give you no insight into how it was discovered. It’s also nice to get a glimpse of the utility of these important theorems.
Published January 1st by W. I ran across the Vector Function derivatives in the title in a physics book.
I sure wish I’d had it about ten years before Rhett recommended it in an LJ comment, iirc. I also found the practice problems to be really helpful, as they are not overly-difficult and tend to reinforce the most important concepts. Div, Grad, Curl, and All That: Some exercises in the last chapter assumes knowledge of physics I don’t have so I skipped those. Exercises at the end of each chapter are a grsd.

All one needs is a semester of calc, and this book. At many occasions I have found fiv non-trivial exercises give small details that can dig enforce one’s intuition and understanding. Jun 16, Adam Lantos rated it really liked it. Jun 17, Nick Black rated it it was amazing Recommended to Nick by: Marco rated it did not like it Nov 17, An extremely useful book for vector calculus that you’ll probably go back to more than once especially if you’re into Physics.
If you are a physics student struggling to put precise physical intuition into divergence, furl and curl operations, this text is a quick study. Almost always they make you go back to the text of the chapter for a second read.
DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus by Harry M. Schey
I’ve read that mathematicians prefer proofs, physicists derivations. May 12, Ronald Lett rated it really liked it Shelves: 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.
Steve rated it really liked it Aug 19, The book also shows the concepts applied to electromagnetism for which vector calculus was originally developed.
Want to Read saving…. It also helps build intuitions for calculus courses which are more rigorous, divv the author specifies in what sense he is being “sloppy” by stating what are needed to make some arguments work in rigorous manner.
Div, grad, curl, and all that | Open Library
Since the publication of the First Edition over thirty years ago, Div, Grad, Curl, and All That 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. This book was recommended to me while I was discussing how I wanted to review my college math textbooks So overall its an intuitive first introduction to the subject that requires elementary calculus as the only prerequisite.
I also found my understanding of calculus to improve as a result of doing them. Sep 27, Rakibullah Sazib rated it really liked it.
