## translational force

work done in moving an object distance r by force F: dW = F.dr

## schrodinger equation

describes a non relativistic particle of mass m in potential V

## Elliptic PDE

b^2 – 4ac < 0 ie wave equation

## scalar products in physics

Energy of magnetic dipole: U = -mB Energy of electric dipole: U = -pE (potential energy is minimal when aligned with field work done given by W=Fd

## Gauss Theorem

div . D = ro (electric displacement and charge density) this integrated over a volume should give the charge

## Parabolic PDE

b^2 – 4ac = 0 ie diffusion equation

## conversion between coordinate systems

reexpressing the position in the new coordinates converting the unit vectors for differential operators: expressing the operators in the new basis system (may affect unit vectors) for integration: converting the limits and…

## Gibbs Phenomenon

first few terms of fourier series overshoot the value for small n For larger n the overshoot does not disappear but the position of each overshoot has moved closer to the discontinuity.

## Stoke’s Theorem

The curl of a vector field integrated over any surface is equal to the contour integral over the boundary of the surface.
