1 Review Example 3, Chapter 8. Example 8.R.4 For a region W in space with boundary ∂W , unit outward normal n and functions f and g defined on W and ∂W , prove Green’s identi- ties: ZZ ∂W ( f g - g f ) · n dS = ZZZ W ( f 2 g - g 2 f ) dxdy dz, where 2 f = 2 f ∂x 2 + 2 f ∂y 2 + 2 f ∂z 2 is the Laplacian of f . Solution. To prove this identity, we apply Gauss’ theorem to the vector field
