In vector calculus, divergence is a vector operator that produces a signed scalar
field giving the quantity of a vector field's source at each point. More technically ...
In this section we are going to introduce a couple of new concepts, the curl and
the divergence of a vector. Let's start with the curl. Given the vector field the curl ...
Both the divergence and curl are vector operators whose properties are revealed
by viewing a vector field as the flow of a fluid or gas. Here we focus on the ...
The physical significance of the divergence of a vector field is the rate at which "
density" exits a given region of space. The definition of the divergence therefore ...

Apr 4, 2009 ... Free ebook http://tinyurl.com/EngMathYT I present a simple example where I
compute the divergence of a given vector field. I give a rough ...
(a) We define the divergence of a vector field F, written div F or ∇ · F, as the dot
product of ... In fact, we can identify conservative vector fields with the curl:.
Sep 20, 2006 ... Divergence (div) is “flux density”—the amount of flux entering or leaving a ... and
could talk to points inside a vector field, asking what they saw:.
The divergence is a scalar function of a vector field. The divergence theorem is
an important mathematical tool in electricity and magnetism.
Basically, divergence has to do with how a vector field changes its magnitude in
the neighborhood of a point, and curl has to do with how its direction changes.
Divergence measures the change in density of a fluid flowing according to a
given vector field.
