Computation of Surface Integrals of Curl Vector Fields
Hu, Chenglie
PRIMUS, v17 n4 p353-356 Oct 2007
This article presents a way of computing a surface integral when the vector field of the integrand is a curl field. Presented in some advanced calculus textbooks such as [1], the technique, as the author experienced, is simple and applicable. The computation is based on Stokes' theorem in 3-space calculus, and thus provides not only a means to compute (often difficult) surface integrals, but also gives a better understanding of Stokes' theorem.
