I am work thru 'Div Grad Curl and all that' by Schey. The given gradient is, del of phi(x,y) = y i, where i is the unit vector. The vector field is easy enough to plot. I am try to find the function of phi(x,y) to overlay on the vector field. I am unable to determine phi(x,y). Is there a solution for phi(x,y) for the given gradient? Thanks,
