In sections on vector analysis, complex analysis, and Fourier analysis, they consider such topics as gradient vector fields, the divergence theorem, complex integration, Fourier series, and applications to ordinary and partial differential equations.
As a result, the approach chosen for this study was based on a fundamental theorem in calculus, called the Divergence Theorem (see Taylor (2)), an analogue of Green's Theorem in two dimensional space.
Section 2 describes how a volume can be computed using the Divergence Theorem.
In this section we state the Divergence Theorem and indicate how it can be used to estimate the volume of a polyhedron.
21) That result is just what one needs for the divergence theorem in a form suitable for generalized coordinates and hence slightly generalized from that in vector calculus, in order to get results independent of the merely conventional choice of coordinates.
The second edition adds a section on the divergence theorem.
