Much of the vast literature on the integral during the last two centuries concerns extending the class of integrable functions. In contrast, our viewpoint is akin to that taken by Hassler Whitney [{\it Geometric integration theory}, Princeton Univ. Press, Princeton, NJ, 1957] and by geometric measure theorists because we extend the class of integrable {\it domains}. Let $\omega$ be an $n$-form defined on $\Bbb R^m$. We show that if $\omega$ is sufficiently smooth, it may be integrated over…

The classical divergence theorem for an $n$-dimensional domain $A$ and a smooth vector field $F$ in $n$-space \[\int_{\partial A} F \cdot n = \int_A div F\] requires that a normal vector field $n(p)$

Topological Aspects of Differential Chains

In this paper we investigate the topological properties of the space of differential chains $\,^{\prime}\mathcal{B}(U)$ defined on an open subset U of a Riemannian manifold M. We show that

We state and prove generalizations of the Differentiation Lemma and the Reynolds Transport Theorem in the general setting of smooth manifolds with corners (e.g. manifolds with or `without' boundary,

In this paper we present a new theory of calculus over $k$-dimensional domains in a smooth $n$-manifold, unifying the discrete, exterior, and continuum theories. The calculus begins at a single point

Abstract.This paper determines the flux F (q,T) of a physical quantity across a part T of the boundary of a ‘rough body.’ The latter term means that the (measure theoretic) boundary ∂B of the body B
