Stokes Theorem

In differential geometry, Stokes' theorem (or Stokes's theorem, also called the generalized Stokes' theorem) is a statement about the integration of differential forms on manifolds, which both simplifies and generalizes several theorems from vector calculus. Lord Kelvin first discovered the result and communicated it to George Stokes? in July 1850. Stokes set the theorem as a question on the 1854 Smith's Prize exam, which led to the result bearing his name. Wikipedia - Stoke's Theorem (external link)
