Because from the definition, the integration limits are the initial and the final points. From path c the particle starts from the point (0,1) and ends at the point(1,0). Also, the ##\vec{dr}## is the direction of the displacement, in that case, would be negative (##\vec{dr} = -dx \hat{i}##).
So how would you set up the integral of this path?,
$$ W = \int_{1}^{0} \vec{F}\cdot d\vec{r} =\int_{1}^{0} (xy \hat{i} +y^2\hat{j })\cdot (dx \hat{i}) = \int_{1}^{0} xy dx $$
For me it is not totally clear yet the reason.
Thanks for the answers. It is clear to me that the integral must be negative since the force is opposite to the displacement.
However, the path integral is defined as
$$ W = \int_{a}^{b} \vec{F}\cdot d\vec{r} $$
where a and b refer to the start and end points, respectively.
In this example a...
In the book it is mentioned that, in path c, the line integral would be:
$$\int \vec{F}\cdot \vec{dr} = A \int_{1}^{0}xy dx = A\int_1^0 x dx = -\dfrac{A}{2}$$.
but I think that dx is negative in that case, the result would be positive, right?
I study of interaction between a system with a reservoir considering a weak coupling between them. I consider a bosonic bath, the initial state are separable and the operator of interaction between the system and bath is linear in the displacements of the oscillators.

The system considers a torus that has a wire wrapped around it, through which a current flows. In this way, a field originates in the phi direction.
The direction of current is "theta" in the spherical coordinate system but in toroidal system, in several book shows that the electrical current...

I am studying electrodynamics, in a few more months I have the qualification exam.
The guide text is classical electrodynamics, Jackson.
I find that book is higher my current level. I have the math tools, but what book do you recommend to use before the Jackson.
To include slonczewski-like torque in the Lagrangian there enter as dissipation by Rayleig function?
ST= σ m x (m x mp)
where m is the magnetization in free layer and mp current direction in the pinned layer (-z).
The Rayleig function is:
RF=(dm/dt+σ m x mp)2
Then
L= ∫ (RF+E)dx
Thanks
