An Introduction to Vector Analysis (Paperback)
by Steven Chapin
An Introduction to Vector Analysis is designed for a one semester or one quarter course in vector analysis (sometimes called vector calculus) for undergraduates majoring in one of the sciences, engineering, or mathematics. The prerequisite is the usual calculus sequence taught in most universities in the United States. This book is written in an informal style, so it should also prove useful for self-study and for review. The author's aim has been to give a straightforward (and relatively brief) treatment of the basics of vector analysis at a level appropriate for the majority of students likely to take such a course in the United States. One noteworthy feature of the text is that the author has given (in an appendix) a treatment of differential forms and the modern version of Stokes' theorem that is accessible to students with modest mathematical backgrounds, i.e., only elementary calculus. The text contains over 350 exercises of varying degrees of difficulty. The solutions to almost all of the non-proof exercises are included.
