Line, Surface and Volume Integrals

  • Paul C. Matthews
Part of the Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series book series (SUMS)


This chapter is concerned with extending the concept of integration to vector quantities and to three dimensions. Before embarking on these more complicated types of integration, however, it is useful to review the concept of integration and some standard techniques for evaluating integrals. It is important that the reader is familiar with these methods, since this will be assumed in the following sections.
