**Prof:** You can attend a colloquium ; sleep through the entire session but if you wanted to ask a really intelligent sounding question at the end go with ‘Excuse me, what about the magnetic fields?’ … Works like a charm ! ðŸ˜€ ðŸ˜€

## Prof.Ghrist at his best!

To understand why this is true, we must start with the Fundamental Theorem of Vector calculus. If is a conservative field ( i.e ), then

What this means is that the value is dependent only on the initial and final positions. The path that you take to get from A to B is not important.

Now if the path of integration is a closed loop, then points A and B are the same, and therefore:

Now that we are clear about this, according to Stokes theorem the same integral for a closed region can be represented in another form:

From this we get that Curl = for a conservative field (i.e ). Therefore when a conservative field is operated on by a curl operator (), it yields 0.

Bravo Prof.Ghrist! Beautifully said ðŸ˜€
