Applications of Line integrals

  1. Mar 23, 2012 #1
    other than the physics (work) what are the applications of line integral? particularly does it have any use in finance or economics?

    Stochastic integrals are quite close to line integrals. They are used, e.g., in economics.

    by line integrals and green's thm, you can find the area of any shape bounded by a closed curve. It's pretty cool actually.
