The objective of this chapter is to provide a review of the fundamental vector operations that are essential to application areas like electromagnetic fields. Our discussion involves the treatment of vector calculus in addition to the standard algebraic approach. Thus, we will introduce important theorems like the divergence theorem and Stokes' theorem that link line, surface, and volume integrals.
