Multivariable Calculus
Multivariable Analysis
Vector Calculus

The use of calculus (limits, derivatives, and integrals) with two or more independent variables, or two or more dependent variables. This can be thought of as the calculus of three dimensional figures.

Common elements of multivariable calculus include parametric equations, vectors, partial derivatives, multiple integrals, line integrals, and surface integrals. Most of multivariable calculus is beyond the scope of this website.
