This lesson takes some of the topics from this course and relates it to topology and physics applications. Maxwell’s equations and their relation to electric / magnetic fields are discussed as an application to this mathematics. Some other laws are also introduced as consequences of some multivariable Calculus topics. Although this is just a brief introduction into these Physics concepts, it does a good job of piquing one’s interest in these topics.
