div, grad, curl and all that

Professor Schey wrote div, grad, curl and all that to help science and engineering students gain a thorough understanding of those ubiquitous vector operators: divergence, gradient, curl, and Laplacian. Since the publication of the First Edition over thirty years ago, several generations of students have learned vector calculus from this little book. Div, grad, curl and all that has been a successful supplement in a variety of physics and engineering courses, from electromagnetic theory to fluid dynamics. The Fourth Edition preserves Schey's clear, informal style and moderately paced exposition as well as avoids unnecessary mathematical rigor.

New for the Fourth Edition: A dozen new example exercises; Updated notation to bring the text in line with modern usage, switching the roles of the two spherical angles, such that the polar angle is now φ and the azimuth is now θ. The Instructor's Solutions Manual, with step-by-step solutions to all the problems, now available online for faculty to download.
