Mathematical Analysis

Vector and Other Analyses

What is vector analysis?

Vector analysis is the calculus of functions with variables as vectors—a part of calculus also known for its derivative and integral equations. The components of a vector do not always have to be constants. They can also be variables and functions of variables, such as the position of a body moving through space represented by a vector whose x, y, and z components are all functions of time. In this case, the calculus can be used to solve such vector functions, which are also called vector analysis.
