Hello, I'm new to Mathematica and am hopeing to benifit form the knowledge of a more experienced user. I would like to use Mathematica to perform curl operations upon a 2D vector field, since I am using real data I need to be able to do this on a list. It would be wonderful if some helpful person could provide my with info on how to do any or all of the following: 1) Read a FORTRAN like 2D vector matrix into Mathematica. 2) Preform a curl operation upon this vector field. 3) Use the ListPlotVectorField function to display the data. I can assume that most or all of these operations are quite simple but they are not covered in any detail in the reference books I have reviewed. Thanks for your Help, Michael Bauer mpb4r at faraday.clas.Virginia.EDU
