# Talk:Line integral

## A line integral is the area under a function along a specified curve.

I have to admit that I have great difficulties to align this description with the usual definition of a line integral, i.e., something like

$\int_\mathbf{C} \langle \vec{f}(\vec{s}), d\vec{s} \rangle$

(I used this notation to stress the scalar product)
