(Sorry for my bad English.) I was reading about the Green's theorem and I notice that the book only shows for the case where the function is a vector function. When learning about line integrals, I saw that we can do line integrals using "ordinary" functions. For example, the line integral of the function f(x,y) = xy is(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ∫ xy ds. Can we also use functions that aren't vector using Green's theorem?
