The mathematical development of a number of topics to be presented in this book is greatly facilitated using vectors and vector calculus. This chapter reviews the concepts of vectors and scalars and the algebraic operations of addition and multiplication as applied to vectors. The concepts of gradient and divergence also are reviewed, but in more detail since they will be encountered frequently. A number of useful vector identities are discussed.
