With its important applications in a broad range of real-world problems, building a strong foundation in vector analysis is an essential part of the future engineer's education. Too often, however, the subject is treated only briefly in general calculus or engineering mathematics courses, and those treatments tend to be focused on theory rather than practical applications.Applied Vector Analysis richly illustrates the application of vector calculus to physical problems. The authors clearly explain the theory, but focus on its application with an abundance of worked practical examples and exercises drawn from fluid mechanics, electromagnetic theory, and Maxwell's wave and heat equations. Developed from class notes used over many years of teaching vector analysis, this book is an ideal text for a one-semester course for senior undergraduate or graduate engineering students. With its bibliography and convenient appendix of vector formula, Applied Vector Analysis will also provide a valuable reference for graduate students and professional engineers.
