Tell me I'm not going mad. If I have a vector field of the form [tex]\mathbf{A}=(0,A(x,y,z),0)[/tex] and I want to take the Laplacian of it, [tex]\nabla^{2}\mathbf{A}[/tex], can I take the Laplacian of the co-ordinate function A(x,y,z)? Will this be the same for the case of cylindrical co-ordinates?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
