Relationship to vector calculus?
- Basically "vector calculus" is just multivariable calculus where the functions and differential operators can be vectors. The terms aren't quite synonymous, but pretty close. If you're taking a course called "multivariable calculus", it's probably also a course on vector calculus. -- Tim314 (talk) 17:45, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
- Both Vector and Multivariable calculus are taught as one. The field of Vector calculus evolved out with Multivariable calculus and is typically taught in one close association of Multivariable calculus. It has same case as of nuclear physics and particle physics. Both fields of physics are taught together as they are close to each other.
Change to into
I changed the defenition of multivariable calculus in the intro from "several variables" to "more than one" because "several" implies only a limited number and multivariable calculus can have many variables. Makewater (talk) 17:13, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
