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 sschey are needed to make some arguments work in graf manner.
Open Preview See a Problem? It’s well written, at times funny, and easy to follow. Div grad curl was an incredible experience to me. Jul 07, Frank rated it it was amazing Shelves: Readers just need to know some basic calculus and a glimpse of multivariable calculus to understand it all.
Since the publication of the First Scheg 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.
Good start before entering full fledged mathematical formulation of electromagnetism. Sep 27, Rakibullah Sazib rated it really liked 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 insertion of more examples, I still think that they are not enough.
I didn’t discover it until the end of my course in vector calculus, and I wish I had used it as a companion piece for the course. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Exercises are more difficult as chapters progress. I ran across the Vector Function derivatives in the title in a physics book.
Lists with This Book. This math book is incredibly fun to read: May 28, Aneece rated it really liked it Shelves: 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.
These kind of dib are simply not here. This is a great, accessible primer on vector calculus. I sure wish I’d had it about ten years before Rhett recommended it in an LJ comment, iirc. Refresh and try again.

One of the most unhelpful physics books i’ve read. Exercises at the end of each chapter are a must. A proof may reassure you that a theorem is true, but give you no insight into how it was discovered. Aug 29, Morgan rated it it was amazing. Multi variable schdy would be helpful too, I found to be able to compensate using a search engine.

Highly recommended for a first time exposure to the subject. Jul 31, Erickson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Very intuitive and concise. Most have the result of calculation at the back for verification, but not how it was derived.
Jun 13, Mostafa Alkady rated it it was amazing. Some exercises in the last chapter assumes knowledge of physics I don’t have so I skipped those. I recommend the Physics undergrad read this the summer before their first year of university studies.
They really help for the concepts to sink in. Curk have to go back through to do a more careful rereading and work some of the problems, but it’s a pretty wonderful guide to the topic of multivariable calculus.
DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus
An extremely useful book for vector calculus that you’ll probably go back to more than once especially if you’re into Physics. Ideal for the physics student who wants to develop their intuition for the basic theorems of vector calculus. And the reason is that most of them are trivial. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Sahil rated it it was amazing Mar 16, I used this book while studying ccurl in high school.

I also found the practice problems to be really helpful, as they are not overly-difficult and tend to reinforce the most duv concepts. Apr 27, Dmitri rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: May 01, Jeff rated it did not like it.
