Hi all!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that the integral is the inverse of the derivative, but what about special derivative operators? What functions would undo the gradient, divergence and curl? And what about special integrals, such as line and surface integrals? Are there different derivatives/integrals that are defined as the inverse of these special calculus operators? Would they be of any practical use?

Thanks!
