A real tough one.Find the flux of the vector field F(x,y,z) = (e^y) i  (y) j + (x sinz) k across σ wit outward orientation where σ is the portion of the elliptic cylinder r(u,v) = (2cos v) i + (sin v) j + (u) k with 0 ≤ u ≤ 5, 0 ≤ v ≤ 2pi. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #2 20130530 01:52:38
Re: A real tough one.Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130530 01:53:23
Re: A real tough one.Thanks; what I wanted though is the flux of the vector field. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.
