dc.description.abstractThis thesis connects a number of fields of mathematics in relation to Euclidean n-space. It defines the meanings of differentiation for functions between these spaces and gives an exposition of the inverse function theorem. One also finds the definition for integration of real valued function defined on a Euclidean n-space. These definitions of differentiation and integration are precursors to the topics of differential forms and integration of forms over chains that stand out as the main ideas developed herein. A great deal of effort is spent on developing the algebraic structure of differential forms including the non-trivial associative property of the wedge product. The final chapter ties the previous chapters together nicely in a result known as Stokes’ Theorem.
