Problem with Integrating by parts

  1. Jul 23, 2012 #1
    I would like to integrate by parts this term-
    [tex] \mu^2 (\nabla^2)^{-1} (\nabla\times B)\dot{B}[/tex]

    Here [itex]B[/itex] is a vector and [itex]\dot{B}[/itex] is the time derivative of B. And [itex]\mu[/itex] is just a constant.

    Can anyone help me?

    Wow, where did you encounter this, i can't see tex where im sitting, but it looks like you have the inverse laplacian?

    AND you have a vector adjacent to a vector? What class is this for? This is either over my head (and/or) you took a bad turn somewhere in calculations leading up to this.

    Yes. there is a inverse laplacian.

    It's a problem of M.Sc. And I am stuck with this term :frown:
