divergence theorem

The Divergence Theorem is a generalization of the classical Ostrogradsky–Gauss Theorem to arbitrary dimensions. As such, it is also a generalization of the (second) Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and a special case of the Stokes Theorem. The value of picking out this particular case is its formulation using vector fields in any number of dimensions.
