Integrating Electric Displacement
Suppose the dielectric material is fixed in position and filling the capacitor, and you would have this term in the way of calculating something.
where D is the dielectric displacement
Now that turns into (by divergence theorem):
Now my textbook says that this term would vanish if we integrate over all of space. Why is that? Thanks for your help in advance. =)

By the way, this is from pg 192 of Electrodynamics by Griffiths, if this could help..
