Vector calculus , or vector analysis , is concerned with differentiation and integration of vector fields , primarily in 3-dimensional Euclidean space R 3. Vector calculus plays an important role in differential geometry and in the study of partial differential equations. It is used extensively in physics and engineering , especially in the description of electromagnetic fields , gravitational fields , and fluid flow.
Vector calculus was developed from quaternion analysis by J. Willard Gibbs and Oliver Heaviside near the end of the 19th century, and most of the notation and terminology was established by Gibbs and Edwin Bidwell Wilson in their book, Vector Analysis.
A scalar field associates a scalar value to every point in a space. The scalar is a mathematical number representing a physical quantity. Examples of scalar fields in applications include the temperature distribution throughout space, the pressure distribution in a fluid, and spin-zero quantum fields known as scalar bosons , such as the Higgs field.
These fields are the subject of scalar field theory. A vector field is an assignment of a vector to each point in a space. Vector fields are often used to model, for example, the speed and direction of a moving fluid throughout space, or the strength and direction of some force , such as the magnetic or gravitational force, as it changes from point to point.
This can be used, for example, to calculate work done over a line. In more advanced treatments, one further distinguishes pseudovector fields and pseudoscalar fields, which are identical to vector fields and scalar fields, except that they change sign under an orientation-reversing map: for example, the curl of a vector field is a pseudovector field, and if one reflects a vector field, the curl points in the opposite direction.
This distinction is clarified and elaborated in geometric algebra , as described below. The algebraic non-differential operations in vector calculus are referred to as vector algebra , being defined for a vector space and then globally applied to a vector field.
The basic algebraic operations consist of: . Also commonly used are the two triple products :. The three basic vector operators are:  . A quantity called the Jacobian matrix is useful for studying functions when both the domain and range of the function are multivariable, such as a change of variables during integration.
The three basic vector operators have corresponding theorems which generalize the fundamental theorem of calculus to higher dimensions:. Linear approximations are used to replace complicated functions with linear functions that are almost the same. Given a differentiable function f x , y with real values, one can approximate f x , y for x , y close to a , b by the formula.
For a continuously differentiable function of several real variables , a point P that is, a set of values for the input variables, which is viewed as a point in R n is critical if all of the partial derivatives of the function are zero at P , or, equivalently, if its gradient is zero. The critical values are the values of the function at the critical points. If the function is smooth , or, at least twice continuously differentiable, a critical point may be either a local maximum , a local minimum or a saddle point.
The different cases may be distinguished by considering the eigenvalues of the Hessian matrix of second derivatives. By Fermat's theorem , all local maxima and minima of a differentiable function occur at critical points. Therefore, to find the local maxima and minima, it suffices, theoretically, to compute the zeros of the gradient and the eigenvalues of the Hessian matrix at these zeros. These structures give rise to a volume form , and also the cross product , which is used pervasively in vector calculus.
The gradient and divergence require only the inner product, while the curl and the cross product also requires the handedness of the coordinate system to be taken into account see cross product and handedness for more detail. Vector calculus can be defined on other 3-dimensional real vector spaces if they have an inner product or more generally a symmetric nondegenerate form and an orientation; note that this is less data than an isomorphism to Euclidean space, as it does not require a set of coordinates a frame of reference , which reflects the fact that vector calculus is invariant under rotations the special orthogonal group SO 3.
More generally, vector calculus can be defined on any 3-dimensional oriented Riemannian manifold , or more generally pseudo-Riemannian manifold.
This structure simply means that the tangent space at each point has an inner product more generally, a symmetric nondegenerate form and an orientation, or more globally that there is a symmetric nondegenerate metric tensor and an orientation, and works because vector calculus is defined in terms of tangent vectors at each point. Most of the analytic results are easily understood, in a more general form, using the machinery of differential geometry , of which vector calculus forms a subset.
Grad and div generalize immediately to other dimensions, as do the gradient theorem, divergence theorem, and Laplacian yielding harmonic analysis , while curl and cross product do not generalize as directly. From a general point of view, the various fields in 3-dimensional vector calculus are uniformly seen as being k -vector fields: scalar fields are 0-vector fields, vector fields are 1-vector fields, pseudovector fields are 2-vector fields, and pseudoscalar fields are 3-vector fields.
There are two important alternative generalizations of vector calculus. The first, geometric algebra , uses k -vector fields instead of vector fields in 3 or fewer dimensions, every k -vector field can be identified with a scalar function or vector field, but this is not true in higher dimensions. This replaces the cross product, which is specific to 3 dimensions, taking in two vector fields and giving as output a vector field, with the exterior product , which exists in all dimensions and takes in two vector fields, giving as output a bivector 2-vector field.
This product yields Clifford algebras as the algebraic structure on vector spaces with an orientation and nondegenerate form. Geometric algebra is mostly used in generalizations of physics and other applied fields to higher dimensions. The second generalization uses differential forms k -covector fields instead of vector fields or k -vector fields, and is widely used in mathematics, particularly in differential geometry , geometric topology , and harmonic analysis , in particular yielding Hodge theory on oriented pseudo-Riemannian manifolds.
From this point of view, grad, curl, and div correspond to the exterior derivative of 0-forms, 1-forms, and 2-forms, respectively, and the key theorems of vector calculus are all special cases of the general form of Stokes' theorem. From the point of view of both of these generalizations, vector calculus implicitly identifies mathematically distinct objects, which makes the presentation simpler but the underlying mathematical structure and generalizations less clear.
From the point of view of geometric algebra, vector calculus implicitly identifies k -vector fields with vector fields or scalar functions: 0-vectors and 3-vectors with scalars, 1-vectors and 2-vectors with vectors.
From the point of view of differential forms, vector calculus implicitly identifies k -forms with scalar fields or vector fields: 0-forms and 3-forms with scalar fields, 1-forms and 2-forms with vector fields. Thus for example the curl naturally takes as input a vector field or 1-form, but naturally has as output a 2-vector field or 2-form hence pseudovector field , which is then interpreted as a vector field, rather than directly taking a vector field to a vector field; this is reflected in the curl of a vector field in higher dimensions not having as output a vector field.

We demonstrate that the azimuthal ambiguity that is present in solar vector magnetogram data can be resolved with line-of-sight and horizontal heliographic derivative information by using the divergence-free property of magnetic fields without additional assumptions. We discuss the specific derivative information that is sufficient to resolve the ambiguity away from disk center, with particular emphasis on the line-of-sight derivative of the various components of the magnetic field. Conversely, we also show cases where ambiguity resolution fails because sufficient line-of-sight derivative information is not available. For example, knowledge of only the line-of-sight derivative of the line-of-sight component of the field is not sufficient to resolve the ambiguity away from disk center. Creating analytically divergence-free velocity fields from grid-based data. We present a method, based on B-splines, to calculate a C2 continuous analytic vector potential from discrete 3D velocity data on a regular grid. A continuous analytically divergence-free velocity field can then be obtained from the curl of the potential.

The theorem is useful because it allows us to translate difficult line integrals into more simple double integrals, or difficult double integrals into more simple line integrals. The same idea is true of the Fundamental Theorem for Line Integrals:. Therefore, the circulation of a vector field along a simple closed curve can be transformed into a double integral and vice versa. In this case,.
