Further to Papabravo's recommendation of the Feynman Lectures series (well worth reading if you have a general interest in science) is to get a copy of Erwin Kreyszig's Advanced Engineering Mathematics book. Kreyszig deals with the mathematical constructs from the engineers perspective and allows you to get a "feel" for what the constructs describe. The book is aimed at general engineering, so there it is not just confined to the EE/EM world, but the vector clac section will give you feel for what these constructs describe. Obviously being a maths text, it will also equip you with the skills to work with the vector calc operators.Hi Studiot,
Thanks for the reply.
Actually I am tying to study "Theory of Electromagnetism". So when I was reading Maxwell's equations in differential form, I was trying to understand the physical significance of those operators ( Gradient, Curl and Divergence) in order to understand it better.
I referred few books but I didn't get physical significance of these operators.
Can you please suggests me any book in which these operators are very well explained along with their physical significance.
Thanking you in advance.
