suppose i have a nonconservative vector field.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and there is a path going from point A to point B.

How do i determine the path taken from A to B such that the line integral is maximized?

edit: actually after thinkin about it, this might be an undefined problem unless there is some constraint on the x,y,z coordinates.
