Loop Integral

  1. May 27, 2010 #1
    I am just curious, when you perform a loop integral, does the fact that it is a loop integral change the way you integrate, or is it just there to tell you that you are integrating in a loop?

    It doesn't change the way you integrate
    But there are theorems regarding specifically integrals over close curves, that do not apply for other integrals.

    Now I can look at one and not be unsure whether I know how to do it or not.
