Notice

On August 21 I am planning to perform a major update to the site. I can't give a specific time in which the update will happen other than probably sometime between 6:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. (Central Time, USA). There is a very small chance that a prior commitment will interfere with this and if so the update will be rescheduled for a later date.

I have spent the better part of the last year or so rebuilding the site from the ground up and the result should (hopefully) lead to quicker load times for the pages and for a better experience on mobile platforms. For the most part the update should be seamless for you with a couple of potential exceptions. I have tried to set things up so that there should be next to no down time on the site. However, if you are the site right as the update happens there is a small possibility that you will get a "server not found" type of error for a few seconds before the new site starts being served. In addition, the first couple of pages will take some time to load as the site comes online. Page load time should decrease significantly once things get up and running however.

 Surface Integrals

In the previous chapter we looked at evaluating integrals of functions or vector fields where the points came from a curve in two- or three-dimensional space.  We now want to extend this idea and integrate functions and vector fields where the points come from a surface in three-dimensional space.  These integrals are called surface integrals.

 

Here is a list of the topics covered in this chapter.

 

Parametric Surfaces  In this section we will take a look at the basics of representing a surface with parametric equations.  We will also take a look at a couple of applications.

 

Surface Integrals  Here we will introduce the topic of surface integrals.  We will be working with surface integrals of functions in this section.

 

Surface Integrals of Vector Fields  We will look at surface integrals of vector fields in this section.

 

Stokes’ Theorem  We will look at Stokes’ Theorem in this section.

 

Divergence Theorem  Here we will take a look at the Divergence Theorem.
