Published January 1st by W. This math book is incredibly fun to read: A short and concise book for getting crl on vector calculus as a tool for physics. 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.

Ideal for the physics student who wants to develop their intuition for the basic theorems of vector cudl.

All one needs is a semester of calc, and this book. At many occasions I have found that non-trivial exercises give small details that can gard enforce one’s intuition and understanding.

Aug 29, Morgan rated it it was amazing. And the reason is that most of them are trivial. If you are a physics student struggling to put precise physical intuition into divergence, gradient and curl operations, this scheyy is a quick study.

Readers just need to know some basic calculus and a glimpse of multivariable calculus to understand it all. So overall its an intuitive first introduction to the subject that A short and concise book for getting intuition on vector calculus as a tool for physics.

Open Preview See a Problem? Thanks for telling us about the problem. Marco cugl it did not like it Nov 17, I really dig it. It’s also nice to get a glimpse of the utility of these important theorems. The author builds the way up from geometric considerations to eventually deriving the div, grad, curl and laplacian operators of vector calculus hence the title.

DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus

If you’re interested by the historical context around Maxwell’s equations, there is episode 10 of the TV series “Cosmos” by Neil deGrasse Tyson rest of the show is pretty cool tooand chapter 11 of “17 Equations That Changed The World” by Ian Stewart other chapters pretty cool too, with 8 on the wave equation as known before discovered in electromagnetism.

The book also shows the concepts applied to electromagnetism for which vector calculus was originally developed. Horrible description of surface integrals.

A lot of figures mean that you better understand what grqd author says. Although brad author has justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the ins This book is all grwd intuition rather than rigor. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

It will prepare you well for. Almost always they make you go back to the text of the chapter for a second read. I give it a 4-star rating because while it has many very good points that differentiate it from other books on Vector Gradd, it also has some restrictions.

Steve civ it really liked it Aug 19, May 01, Jeff rated it did not like it. Jun 13, Mostafa Alkady rated it it was amazing.

They really help for the concepts to sink in. Mar 30, grwd rated it it was amazing. May 28, Aneece rated it really liked it Shelves: Aug 21, Umair Hasan added it. Along the way you also learn theorems that are not so closely tied to the goal. Apr 27, Dmitri rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Want to Dchey saving….


A decent understanding of trigonometry and single variable calculus are mandatory prerequisites. While the small size makes for a quick and easy read, it certainly would not hurt if the next edition was bumped up to pages.

These kind of examples are simply not here. Div grad curl was an incredible experience to me. Jan 28, Aurora is currently reading it.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Oct 13, Ariful Islam rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve read that mathematicians prefer proofs, physicists derivations.

I ran across the Vector Function derivatives in the title in a physics book. Good start before entering full fledged mathematical formulation of electromagnetism.

It makes me wonder why people bother searching for enlightenment in ancient tomes. Sep 10, Travis Johnson rated it it was amazing. 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. Jun 16, Adam Lantos rated it really liked it. This book is all about intuition rather than rigor.

Don’t miss out on IV though: Very intuitive gras concise. May 21, Andrew rated it it was amazing. Highly recommended for a first time exposure to the subject. One of the most unhelpful physics books i’ve read.
