Chapter 16 – Vector Calculus

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- Objectives:
- Understand The Divergence Theorem for simple solid regions.
- Use Stokes’ Theorem to evaluate integrals

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- In Section 16.5, we rewrote Green’s Theorem in a vector version as: where C is the positively oriented boundary curve of the plane region D.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- If we were seeking to extend this theorem to vector fields on 3, we might make the guess that
where S is the boundary surface of the solid region E.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- It turns out that Equation 1 is true, under appropriate hypotheses, and is called the Divergence Theorem.
- Notice its similarity to Green’s Theorem and Stokes’ Theorem in that:
- It relates the integral of a derivative of a function (div Fin this case) over a region to the integral of the original function F over the boundary of the region.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- Let:
- E be a simple solid region and let Sbe the boundary surface of E, given with positive (outward) orientation.
- F be a vector field whose component functions have continuous partial derivatives on an open region that contains E.

- Then,

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- Thus, the Divergence Theorem states that:
- Under the given conditions, the flux of Facross the boundary surface of E is equal to the triple integral of the divergence ofFoverE.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- The Divergence Theorem is sometimes called Gauss’s Theorem after the great German mathematician Karl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855).
- He discovered this theorem during his investigation of electrostatics.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- In Eastern Europe, it is known as Ostrogradsky’s Theorem after the Russian mathematician Mikhail Ostrogradsky
(1801–1862).

- He published this result in 1826.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- Use the Divergence Theorem to calculate the surface integral ; that is, calculate the flux of F across S.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- Use the Divergence Theorem to calculate the surface integral ; that is, calculate the flux of F across S.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- Use the Divergence Theorem to calculate the surface integral ; that is, calculate the flux of F across S.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- The main results of this chapter are all higher-dimensional versions of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTC).
- To help you remember them, we collect them here (without hypotheses) so that you can see more easily their essential similarity.

16.9 The Divergence Theorem

- In each case, notice that:
- On the left side, we have an integral of a “derivative” over a region.
- The right side involves the values of the original function only on the boundaryof the region.
