JG Vargas: Helmholtz Theorem for Differential Forms in 3-D Euclidean Space


Jose G. Vargas

Abstract: There are significant differences between Helmholtz and Hodge’s decomposition theorems, but both share a common flavor. This paper is a first step to bring them together.  We here produce Helmholtz theorems for differential 1-forms and 2-forms in 3-D Euclidean space. We emphasize their common structure in order to facilitate the understanding of another paper, soon to be made public, where a Helmholtz theorem for arbitrary differential forms in arbitrary Euclidean space is presented and which allows one to connect (actually to derive from it) an improvement of Hodge’s decomposition theorem.
