Student[VectorCalculus] Package

The Student[VectorCalculus] package is a collection of commands that perform vector calculus computations, and generate related plots and animations. It includes interactive commands that launch point-and-click interfaces to some of the package functionality.


The Student[VectorCalculus] package can be thought of as a simplified version of the full VectorCalculus package. The principal differences are (1) only a limited number of coordinate systems are supported; and (2) commands in the Student[VectorCalculus] package often try to guess the intended coordinate system, or coordinate variable names, while the main VectorCalculus package is stricter in its requirements about being provided these details.
