Inverting the curl operator

  1. Aug 11, 2012 #1
    Let's say I have this relation

    B=∇XA

    I know B, now I want A.
    What ever do I do?
    Is there some tried and true method out there?

    no sir, this relation doesn't allowed to find A directly....A isn't single...but if you have the form of A (for example A=a(r)u) u can find it
