Stoke's Theorem is a generalization of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, which states that if M is an oriented piece-wise smooth manifold of dimension n and is a smooth n−1 form with compact support on M. Let ∂M denotes the boundary of M with its induced orientation, then

where d is the exterior derivative.
