Ticket #27703, comment 5
initial v1 13 13 > 14 14 15 I think this is out of the scope of this tutorial, which is ''elementary'' vector calculus .15 I think this is out of the scope of this tutorial, which is ''elementary'' vector calculus, in the meaning of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_calculus 16 16 17 17 > How difficult would it be to add another tutorial discussing things on a (2D) torus? I think a slightly more nontrivial example than '''R'''^3^ would be beneficial. … … 26 26 >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. 27 27 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 exploringthe reference manual.28 Agreed.

It is not an introduction to the subject, but to the vector calculus tools available in Sage.
