32). Now, there are plenty of surfaces (infinitely many) that share any given boundary line. Twist a paper clip into a loop and dip it in soapy water. The soap film constitutes a surface, with the wire loop as its boundary. If you blow on it, the soap film will expand, making a larger surface, with the same boundary. Ordinarily, a flux integral depends critically on what surface you integrate over, but evidently this is not the case with curls. 3. 32 theorem says that ](V X v) da is equal to the line integral of v around the boundary, and the latter makes no reference to the specific surface you choose.

Notice that V(V v) is not the same as the Laplacian of a vecror: v 2 v = (V . V)v # V(V - v). (4) The divergence of a curl, like the curl of a gradient, is olwciys zero: You can prove this for yourself. ) (5) As you can check from the definition of V: So curl-of-curl gives nothing new; the first term is just number (3) and the second is the Laplacian (of a vector). (In fact, Eq. 47 is often used to define the Laplacian of a vector, in preference to Eq. ) Really, then, there are just two kinds of second derivatives: the Laplacian (which is of fundamental importance) and the gradient-of-divergence (which we seldom encounter).
