which is the best book for vector calculus?? i need something complete and not just introductory...
Leithold=ok, goes from basic calc to multivariable fairly thoroughly Spivak=very thorough, but also very hard reading
For Vector Calculus I like J. Marsden (CalTech) & A. Tromba (UCSC). But like wolfsy said, if you are trying to conceptualize things, a book on E&M. Feynmann isn't super mathematically intensive. Griffith is a standard undergrad E&M text; some people love it some people hate it. Jackson is a grad text, but a large portion of the book is devoted to learning the math.
Lalji Prasad's book is the best
thanks @open_study1 i like electrodynamics a lot but i dont like studying one thing over and over so i think i'll go with something more mathematically inclined...i like the sound of Spivak.. stupid question but,@TuringTest is it by a russian author??(i have a lot of faith in russian texts, especially the popular ones)
not sure @Zarkon has read it; not me though you may ask him more about it
but yes, it's very well-known
oh i found its american author (on google).anyway thanks,anyone good will do.it was just that after doing irodov,krotov,etc i found them really amazing... ...@Zarkon pls tell how the book is, in your opinion?
