Chapter 24: Reducing a Surface Integral to a Multiple Integral and the Jacobian



Surface integrals are of greatest importance from their power in representing important physical concepts, such as flow of a material or charge, or flux of electric or magnetic fields. We also want to be able to compute them and we show here how this is done.
