    [tex]\oint {d{\bf{R}} \times {\bf{A}}} = \mathop{{\int\!\!\!\!\!\int}\mkern-21mu \bigcirc}
    {\left( {d{\bf{S}} \times \nabla } \right) \times {\bf{A}}} [/tex]

    I would try Stokes' theorem. Just try to find apropriate fields and field derivatives instead of the original fields in the theorem. I'm almost sure it will work.

    I am trying to prove this using the common vector identities and Stoke's theorem, without going into tensor notation at every step. It seems to be quite impossible.
