Don’t miss out on IV though: Curo always they make you go back to the text of the chapter for a second read. They really help for the concepts to sink in. If you are a physics student struggling to put precise physical intuition into divergence, gradient and curl operations, this text is a quick study.
This was a great overview of vector calculus, as well as an interesting investigation into how to find the electric field. Jun 16, Adam Lantos rated it really liked it. This book is all about intuition rather than rigor.
This book is definitely no substitute for more rigorous proofs and derivations, but it would be a great refresher, and is a perfect companion piece for quite a few subjects. Refresh and try again. Sep 22, Kourtney rated it it was amazing.
If you like books and love to build civ products, we may be looking for you.
Multi variable calculus would be helpful too, I found to be able to compensate using a search engine.
Jun 25, Guillaume Koenig rated it it was amazing. Exercises at the end of each chapter are a must. Good start before entering full fledged mathematical formulation of electromagnetism.
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.
These restrictions are just enough to justify a 4-star rating, although I would gladly give it an easy 5-star rating if it had just a bit more examples.

Mar 30, sqrt2 rated it it was amazing. 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. The cugl also shows the concepts applied to electromagnetism for which vector calculus was originally developed. Published January 1st by W. Cuurl of the most unhelpful physics books i’ve read. 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.

This book was recommended to me while I was discussing how I wanted to review my college math textbooks It starts out by explicitly setting a goal to find the electric field due to any distribution of charges, and then it approaches the goal step by step, introducing the concepts of vector calculus to overcome the obstacles one by one, in a very logical progression.

It will prepare you well for. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Maybe they are left as exercises, but it wouldn’t hurt if some where examples. Limited to three dimensions, limited in its rigor, but within these limits crystal-clear about the how and why of Div, Grad, Curl and the equations in which these derivatives occur.
DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus by Harry M. Schey
This math book is dib fun to read: Very easy to grasp, provided scgey figures, and links most of the topics to their applications in real life. 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.
May 12, Ronald Lett rated it really liked it Shelves: 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.
Ahhh, what a happy little book.

Marco rated it did not like it Nov 17, I sure wish I’d had it about ten years before Rhett recommended it in an LJ comment, iirc. These kind of examples are simply not here. May 01, Jeff scney it did not like it.
