Vector Calculus Using Mathematica Second Edition

BySteven Tan

An introduction to vector calculus with the aid of Mathematica® computer algebra system to represent them and to calculate with them. The unique features of the book, which set it apart from the existing textbooks, are the large number of illustrative examples. It is the author’s opinion a novice in science or engineering needs to see a lot of examples in which mathematics is used to be able to “speak the language.” All these examples and all illustrations can be replicated and used to learn and discover vector calculus in a new and exciting way. Reader can practice with the solutions, and then modify them to solve the particular problems assigned. This should move up problem solving skills and to use Mathematica® to visualize the results and to develop a deeper intuitive understanding. Usually, visualization provides much more insight than the formulas themselves. The second edition is an addition of the first. Two new chapters on line integrals, Green's Theorem, Stokes's Theorem and Gauss's Theorem have been added.
