Oct 13, Ariful Islam rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book satisfies the desire for derivation and motivation over rigor.
Div, grad, curl, and all that | Open Library
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. It also helps build intuitions for calculus courses which are more rigorous, since the author specifies in what sense he is vrad “sloppy” by stating what are needed to make some arguments work in rigorous manner.
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.
Exercises are more difficult as chapters progress. Steve rated it really liked it Aug 19, So overall its an intuitive first introduction to the subject that requires elementary calculus as the only prerequisite. Sep 22, Kourtney rated it it was amazing. 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.
I used this book while studying physics in high school. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Price Kagey rated it really liked it Oct 23, I give it a 4-star rating because while it has many very good points that differentiate it from other books on Vector Calculus, it also has some restrictions.
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.
And the reason is that most graad them are trivial. Aug 21, Umair Hasan added it. I also found my understanding of calculus to improve as a result of doing them. Arc rated it really liked it Jun 25, I really dig it. One of the most unhelpful physics books i’ve read. Maybe they are left as exercises, but cjrl wouldn’t hurt if some where examples.
DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus by Harry M. Schey
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. Since the publication of the First Edition 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.
Div, Grad, Curl, and All That: Aug 29, Morgan rated it it was ucrl.
Very intuitive and concise. Apr 27, Dmitri rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Very easy to grasp, provided with figures, and links most of the topics to their applications in real life.
No trivia or quizzes yet.
Jun 17, Nick Black rated it it was amazing Recommended to Nick by: Most have the result of calculation at the back for verification, but not how it was derived. It makes me wonder why people bother searching for enlightenment in ancient tomes.
Read this is an evening to get ready for prelims. May 21, Andrew rated it it was amazing. This book explained the mysteries hinted at in the other book.
Apr 24, Andrew rated it really liked it Recommends it for: 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 dic book is incredibly fun to read: Mar 30, sqrt2 rated it it was amazing.

Very unclear derivations at times and very big logical steps missing. It will prepare you well for. It’s also nice to get a glimpse of the utility of these important theorems. Jun 13, Mostafa Alkady rated it it was gfad. Return to Book Page. Exercises at the end of each chapter are a must.
