    15 I think this is out of the scope of this tutorial, which is ''elementary'' vector calculus.

    1717> How difficult would it be to add another tutorial discussing things on a (2D) torus? I think a slightly more non-trivial example than '''R'''^3^ would be beneficial.
     
    2626>I do think it is useful to have one tutorial about the things you can do on a particular object, but I think  given the code samples already in the docstrings, this is not currently saying much more.

    28 Agreed. All the information in the tutorial is already in the reference manual, but scattered over various places. For instance, many methods are described in manifold section or the tensor field one, not in the vector field section. I have the feeling that a newcomer to Sage will first jump on tutorials rather then exploring the reference manual.

    3030>Perhaps what I am suggesting is to think of this as something you would point a new student/researcher to who did not know the theory as a way to give them a starting point.

    32 Indeed, this tutorial assumes the reader knows already about Euclidean spaces and elementary vector calculus.
     32Indeed, this tutorial assumes the reader knows already about Euclidean spaces and elementary vector calculus. It is not an introduction to the subject, but to the vector calculus tools available in Sage.
