In mathematics , an integral assigns numbers to functions in a way that describes displacement, area, volume, and other concepts that arise by combining infinitesimal data. The process of finding integrals is called integration. Along with differentiation , integration is a fundamental operation of calculus, [a] and serves as a tool to solve problems in mathematics and physics involving the area of an arbitrary shape, the length of a curve, and the volume of a solid, among others.

Vector Calculus for Engineers covers both basic theory and applications. In the first week we learn about scalar and vector fields, in the second week about differentiating fields, in the third week about multidimensional integration and curvilinear coordinate systems.

These theorems are needed in core engineering subjects such as Electromagnetism and Fluid Mechanics. Instead of Vector Calculus, some universities might call this course Multivariable or Multivariate Calculus or Calculus 3.

Two semesters of single variable calculus differentiation and integration are a prerequisite. The course is organized into 53 short lecture videos, with a few problems to solve following each video.

And after each substantial topic, there is a short practice quiz. Solutions to the problems and practice quizzes can be found in instructor-provided lecture notes. There are a total of five weeks to the course, and at the end of each week there is an assessed quiz. Vectors A vector is a mathematical construct that has both length and direction. We will define vectors and learn how to add and subtract them, and how to multiply them using the scalar and vector products dot and cross products.

We will use vectors to learn some analytical geometry of lines and planes, and learn about the Kronecker delta and the Levi-Civita symbol to prove vector identities. The important concepts of scalar and vector fields will be introduced.

Differentiation Scalar and vector fields can be differentiated. We define the partial derivative and derive the method of least squares as a minimization problem. We learn how to use the chain rule for a function of several variables, and derive the triple product rule used in chemical engineering.

We define the gradient, divergence, curl and Laplacian. We learn some useful vector calculus identities and how to derive them using the Kronecker delta and Levi-Civita symbol. Vector identities are then used to derive the electromagnetic wave equation from Maxwell's equation in free space.

Electromagnetic waves form the basis of all modern communication technologies. Integration and Curvilinear Coordinates Integration can be extended to functions of several variables. We learn how to perform double and triple integrals. Curvilinear coordinates, namely polar coordinates in two dimensions, and cylindrical and spherical coordinates in three dimensions, are used to simplify problems with circular, cylindrical or spherical symmetry.

We learn how to write differential operators in curvilinear coordinates and how to change variables in multidimensional integrals using the Jacobian of the transformation. Line and Surface Integrals Scalar or vector fields can be integrated on curves or surfaces.

We learn how to take the line integral of a scalar field and use line integrals to compute arc lengths. We then learn how to take line integrals of vector fields by taking the dot product of the vector field with tangent unit vectors to the curve. Consideration of the line integral of a force field results in the work-energy theorem.

Next, we learn how to take the surface integral of a scalar field and compute surface areas. We then learn how to take the surface integral of a vector field by taking the dot product of the vector field with the normal unit vector to the surface.

The surface integral of a velocity field is used to define the mass flux of a fluid through the surface. Fundamental Theorems The fundamental theorem of calculus links integration with differentiation. Here, we learn the related fundamental theorems of vector calculus. These include the gradient theorem, the divergence theorem, and Stokes' theorem.

We show how these theorems are used to derive continuity equations, derive the law of conservation of energy, define the divergence and curl in coordinate-free form, and convert the integral version of Maxwell's equations into their more aesthetically pleasing differential form. Taught by Jeffrey R. Select a rating. I can only deliver a mixed review. The course presents a generous amount of material, and all the basics are covered, but the presentation, especially in the final week, is perfunctory at best, grinding through derivations and leaving many steps for the The course presents a generous amount of material, and all the basics are covered, but the presentation, especially in the final week, is perfunctory at best, grinding through derivations and leaving many steps for the student simply to "look up".

Therefore, I recommend the course only as a review for anyone who already knows the material; trying to learn the details for the first time from this rushed and compressed presentation is likely to be frustrating, if not discouraging. This is a likely related to Coursera's pressure to cram course contents into 4-week lumps as much as of anything else.

That said, the lectures are well-organized trips through the standard derivations of results in Cartesian and spherical coordinate systems, but the motivation of the utility of scalar and vector products as projections and volumes is left behind once it has been given that perfunctory treatment in the early lectures.

The course makes no attempt to get beyond dimension that can treated with analytic geometry of planes and 3-space; we do see the fluxes on cube faces and on the boundary of spheres; sadly, these treatments are too rushed. Vector calculus is a rich and beautiful subject, but don't come here to try to learn it for the first time. Helpful 2. Professor Chasnov is highly organized and presents the contents in a clear manner.

I have become fond of his excellent teaching style. Over and above, all engineers must take this course. This is terrific effort from him. I wish the best comes his way as a reward for his dedication. God bless. Week three is the pivotal week for learning that I struggled with. Line and Surface integrals just did not come easy to me.

A tutorial on the line and surface integrals in greater depth would have helped me since it is difficult to visualize what these always mean. The instruction was excellent, but I feel I needed extra help.

Would love to take a course in just line and surface integrals. An extremely valuable course for anyone in physics or engineering. Take it as soon as you can. In short duration it could cover all areas of vector calculus I request sir to include more no.

Finished all the course in about 2 weeks. It is very good if you want to refresh your memory on vector calculus in my case. If you want a solid foundation, then you should supplement it with lots of more examples from some textbook s. Otherwise, things are explained very well, and the examples are not too difficult to scare you away!

Great course. Helpful 1. A great refresher course if you already know vector calculus and would like to take a cursory glance to brush up the concepts. I didn't have the in-depth knowledge of the topic but tackling it on your own can at first seem daunting. It had been something It had been something of a personal challenge for me. This course seemed to offer a practical grasp of the topics in four weeks.

I figured if I could manage this, I will be able to gather enough courage to independently study the topic in more detail. Thanks to the incredible instructor, Professor Chasnov, the material didn't seem too hard.

But I should mention that I am a physics major and I was already comfortable with working with vectors and had a good enough grasp on Calculus 2. My only complaint was with problems in lecture 41 which I personally thought could have done with an additional video on how to apply the theorems to Navier Stokes equation. I think I was looking a bit more information for the physical meaning behind the problem and how the theorems exactly help us.

Something you can find out online I certainly had to work a lot more than what the course suggests is the time required to complete a given week.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to get a working understanding of using multivariable calculus. My review here isn't so much about this particular course. Instead, it is about the instructor Jeff Chasnov. I enjoyed all of them. I'm excited about his new course Numerical Methods for Engineers, beginning Jan, which I will not miss. Heck, I wish that I could work for him!

He enthusiastically engages with students in the discussion forums, and responds well to constructive criticism, a rare quality. There are practice quizzes as well as weekly graded quizzes. Other instructors should take note of him. He really cares. Love his use of the lightboard. I would say that his courses target advanced high school students through undergrad school, but refreshers for graduate students or engineers are appropriate as well.

The only negatives I can mention is that he keeps his courses too short IMO, usually 4 weeks, but he crams a lot of topics into them, and that PDF handouts were not available. But it is easy to snapshot the lightboard.

## MULTIVARIABLE AND VECTOR ANALYSIS

Exercice de Physique Chimie 6eme Two integrals of the same function may differ by a constant. The derivative of any function is unique but on the other hand, the integral of every function is not unique. Time can play an important role in the difference between differentiation and integration. Both differentiation and integration, as discussed are inverse processes of each other.

Vector calculus , or vector analysis , is concerned with differentiation and integration of vector fields , primarily in 3-dimensional Euclidean space R 3. Vector calculus plays an important role in differential geometry and in the study of partial differential equations. It is used extensively in physics and engineering , especially in the description of electromagnetic fields , gravitational fields , and fluid flow. Vector calculus was developed from quaternion analysis by J. Willard Gibbs and Oliver Heaviside near the end of the 19th century, and most of the notation and terminology was established by Gibbs and Edwin Bidwell Wilson in their book, Vector Analysis. A scalar field associates a scalar value to every point in a space.

## Vector Calculus

In mathematics , matrix calculus is a specialized notation for doing multivariable calculus , especially over spaces of matrices. This greatly simplifies operations such as finding the maximum or minimum of a multivariate function and solving systems of differential equations. The notation used here is commonly used in statistics and engineering , while the tensor index notation is preferred in physics. Two competing notational conventions split the field of matrix calculus into two separate groups. The two groups can be distinguished by whether they write the derivative of a scalar with respect to a vector as a column vector or a row vector.
