Talk:General Stokes' Theorem
I'm going to start doing up a proof for this but it's going to take me a while - just to avoid any cross-edits etc. BigPansy 15:52, 13 May 2011 (CDT)

I disagree with factoring the proof: the 'special case' isn't interesting as a statement itself: I just reordered the argument of the existing proof since I felt it wasn't clear that the proof proceeded by reducing to this situation, when so many definitions were missing. It could be written:
- "wlog we can assume...indeed"
- proof of general case
- "now we prove the theorem under the additional hypotheses"
- proof of special case
