what does that sign mean? a integral sign with a circle on it.
A "normal" integral need not be performed over the entire domain of the integrand, either.Originally posted by Ambitwistor
A line integral is performed not over the entire domain of the integrand, but only over a one-dimensional subspace of the domain (a closed curve).
By "normal integral" I take you to mean "integral along the x-axis".Originally posted by PrudensOptimus
so this line integral is the same as a normal integral?
