# PlanetPhysics/Stokes Theorem

(Redirected from PlanetPhysics/StokesTheorem)

{\mathbf Stokes' theorem}:\, The surface integral of the curl of a vector function is equal to the line integral of that vector function taken around the closed curve bounding that surface.

On account of its great importance in all branches of mathematical physics, a number of different proofs of this theorem will be given.

### Proof I.
