Vector analysis is one of the most useful branches of mathematics. It is a highly scientific field that is used in practical problems arising in engineering and applied sciences. Based on notes gathered throughout the many years of teaching vector calculus, the main purpose of the book is to illustrate the application of vector calculus to physical problems. The theory is explained elegantly and clearly and there is an abundance of solved problems to manifest the application of the theory. The beauty of this book is the richness of practical applications. There are nine chapters each of which contains ample exercises at the end. A bibliography list is also included for ready reference. The book concludes with two appendices. Appendix A contains answers to some selected exercises, and Appendix B contains some useful vector formulas at a glance.This book is suitable for a one semester course for senior undergraduates and junior graduate students in science and engineering. It is also suitable for the scientists and engineers working on practical problems.
