  Gradient   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The contour map of the terrain is, in effect, a scalar function -- the height z defined by the coordinates of the given point.
Given a scalar field, the gradient of the field is a vector field, where all vectors point towards the higher values, with magnitude equal to the rate of change of values.

The Laplacian \nabla^2 f is easily the most important of these second derivatives; however, for well-behaved functions the matrix \nabla \otimes \nabla f is a symmetric matrix, and, consequently, it is usually also a Hermitian matrix.

More intuitively, orthogonal coordinate systems are those in which the coordinate surfaces meet at right angles.
These unit vectors are tangent to the coordinate lines and form the coordinate axes of a local Cartesian coordinate system.
With the exception of ellipsoidal coordinates, most of these coordinate systems are generated from a two-dimensional orthogonal coordinate system, either by rotating it about a symmetry axis, or by simply projecting it perpendicularly into a third dimension.

 Nabla Symbol Encyclopedia Article @ Signifies.net   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Another, less-common name for the symbol is atled (delta spelled backwards) because the nabla is an inverted delta.

It also can refer to a connection in differential geometry, as well as the all relation (most commonly in lattice theory).

These calculations follow almost identically the calculations made for cylindrical coordinates -- spherical coordinates are simply more difficult to work with because z is not defined in both the rectangular and spherical coordinate systems.
Unlike cylindrical coordinate calculations, d/dz is now an issue because of the addition of the variable phi.
Now, armed with the spherical nabla operator and the spatial derivatives for spherical coordinates, we can do the vector calculations needed to derive the equation of energy in terms of sherical coordinates.

Component of vectors, such as displacements and forces, are always defined positive in the positive coordinate directions, and plots of displacements are always shown upright (i.e., never reversed or upside down).
Also, this convention calls for the use of second (cylindrical or spherical) Hankel functions when formulating wave propagation problems in infinite media, either in cylindrical or in spherical coordinates, and casting them in the frequency domain.
On the one hand, this convention facilitates the conversion between Cartesian and either cylindrical or spherical coordinates; on the other, it provides a convenient x–y reference system when working in horizontal planes (i.e., in a bird’s-eye view).
