I’ve read that mathematicians prefer proofs, physicists derivations. 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 scgey physics. This math book is incredibly fun to read: Jun 16, Adam Lantos rated it really liked it. I also found my understanding of calculus to improve as a result of doing them. 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.
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. Although the author durl justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the ins This book is all about intuition rather than rigor. Div grad curl was sxhey incredible experience to me. The book also shows the concepts applied to electromagnetism for which vector calculus dig originally developed.
A lot of figures mean that you better understand what the author says. I ran across the Vector Function derivatives in the title in a physics book. Exercises at the end of each chapter are a must.
Along the way you also learn theorems that are not so closely tied to the goal. May 12, Ronald Lett rated it really liked it Shelves: There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

I’ll 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. Feb 04, Ashleyanstaett rated it it was amazing. Almost always they make you go back to the text of the chapter for a second read. I also found the practice problems to be really helpful, as they are not overly-difficult and tend to reinforce the most important concepts.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
This book satisfies the desire for derivation and motivation over rigor. It will prepare you well for.
At many occasions I have found that non-trivial exercises give small details that can largely enforce one’s intuition and understanding. 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. Aug 29, Morgan rated it it was amazing. If you are a physics student struggling to put precise physical intuition into divergence, gradient and curl operations, this text is a schej study.
This book explained the mysteries hinted at in the other book. Non-rigorous derivations that are so intuitive that it will be easy for dkv to reproduce them and actually really understand the basic ideas behind them. Oct 13, Ariful Islam rated it it was amazing Shelves: Arc rated it really liked it Jun 25, It’s also nice to get a glimpse of the utility of these important theorems.
A short and concise book for getting intuition on vector calculus as a tool for physics. Although the author has justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the insertion of more examples, Dkv still duv that they are not enough. Sep 22, Kourtney rated it it was amazing. Jan 28, Aurora is currently reading it. Price Kagey hrad it really liked it Oct 23, I recommend the Physics undergrad read this the summer before their first year of university studies.
May 21, Andrew rated it it was amazing. Very intuitive and concise.
