Stoke's Theorem is the fundamental theorem of Exterior Calculus and a generalization of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, which states that if *M* is an oriented piece-wise smooth manifold of dimension k and is a smooth (*k*−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.
