  Vector calculus Summary
Vector analysis is the multi-dimensional analogue of single-variable calculus.
It states that the integral of the (normal component of the) curl of a vector field over a bounded surface is equal to the integral of the (tangential component of the) vector field along the boundary of the surface.
Vector calculus (also called vector analysis) is a field of mathematics concerned with multivariate real analysis of vectors in two or more dimensions.

 Vector potential - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In vector calculus, a vector potential is a vector field whose curl is a given vector field.
This is analogous to a scalar potential, which is a scalar field whose negative gradient is a given vector field.
A generalization of this theorem is the Helmholtz decomposition which states that any vector field can be decomposed as a sum of a solenoidal vector field and an irrotational vector field.

 VECTOR ANALYSIS - Online Information article about VECTOR ANALYSIS
As already explained, two vectors which are represented by equal and parallel straight lines drawn in the same sense are regarded as identical.
When the sum (or difference) of two vectors is to be further dealt with as a single vector, this may be indicated by the use of curved brackets, e.g.
A polar vector, as it is called, is a magnitude associated with a certain linear direction.

For vector analysis, he asserted "[M]y conviction [is] that its principles will exert a vast influence upon the future of mathematical science." Though the Elements of Dynamic was supposed to have been the first of a sequence of textbooks, Clifford never had the opportunity to pursue these ideas because he died quite young.
Vector methods were introduced into Italy (1887, 1888, 1897), Russia (1907), and the Netherlands (1903).
Vectors are now the modern language of a great deal of physics and applied mathematics and they continue to hold their own intrinsic mathematical interest.

The reason for this introduction to vectors is that many concepts in science, for example, displacement, velocity, force, acceleration, have a size or magnitude, but also they have associated with them the idea of a direction.
Graphically, a vector is represented by an arrow, defining the direction, and the length of the arrow defines the vector's magnitude.
The sum of two vectors, A and B, is a vector C, which is obtained by placing the initial point of B on the final point of A, and then drawing a line from the initial point of A to the final point of B, as illustrated in Panel 4.

A vector field is a function that assigns a vector to a point in a plane or in space.
The results, contained in the theorems of Green, Gauss and Stokes (the so-called Classical Integration Theorems of Vector Calculus), are all variations of the same theme applied to different types of integration.
Green's Theorem relates the path integral of a vector field along an oriented, simple closed curve in the xy-plane to the double integral of its derivative (to be precise, the curl) over the region enclosed by that curve.

 Complex analysis Summary
Complex analysis is the branch of mathematics investigating functions of complex numbers, and is of enormous practical use in many branches of mathematics, including applied mathematics.
Sometimes, as in the case of the natural logarithm, it is impossible to analytically continue a holomorphic function to a non-simply connected domain in the complex plane but it is possible to extend it to a holomorphic function on a closely related surface known as a Riemann surface.
There is also a very rich theory of complex analysis in more than one complex dimension where the analytic properties such as power series expansion still remain true whereas most of the geometric properties of holomorphic functions in one complex dimension (such as conformality) are no longer true.

As to proving these stokes type theorems, they are all proved in the same way, induction plus the fundamental theorem of calculus in one variable.
Then by the "fubini" theorem, or repeated integration, the integral of f' over the rectangle can be computed from the family of integrals of f' over the moving intervals.

 Chapter 3: Fourier Analysis of Discrete Functions
In other words, the data vector v is transformed into a Fourier vector f by a rotation and change of scale (represented by the constant multiplier √(2/D) in equation 3.39).
In words, Parseval's theorem states that the length of the data vector may be computed either in the space/time domain (the first coordinate reference frame) or in the Fourier domain (the second coordinate reference frame).
The significance of the theorem is that it provides a link between the two domains which is based on the squared length of the data vector.

 Dimensional Analysis...Measuroo.com
Dimensional analysis is a mathematical tool often applied in physics, chemistry, and engineering to understand physical situations that are so complicated that it is difficult or impossible to derive the underlying differential equations.
This theorem describes how every physically meaningful equation involving n variables can be equivalently rewritten as an equation of n-m dimensionless parameters, where m is the number of fundamental dimensions used.
The p-theorem uses linear algebra: the space of all possible physical units can be seen as a vector space over the rational numbers if we represent a unit as the set of exponents needed for the fundamental units (with a power of zero if the particular fundamental unit is not present).

 Fundamental theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The names are mostly traditional; so that for example the fundamental theorem of arithmetic is basic to what would now be called number theory.
Theorems may be called fundamental because they are results from which further, more complicated theorems follow, without reaching back to axioms.
The mathematical literature will sometimes refer to the fundamental lemma of a field; this is often, but not always, the same as the fundamental theorem of that field.
