I'm interested in mathematics which is used to frame physical theory. I guess that means I'm at least a little interested in just about anything. Currently I'm trying to find a good open question to attack.

comment product solutions for PDEs, physical motivation
@ramanujan_dirac that text is fascinating. However, so far as I see, math. I hold out hope for a more physical answer. Perhaps it's hidden somewhere in ima.umn.edu/~miller/sepofvariablestalk.pdf The problem of really understanding separation of variables in general is much harder than I first suspected.

comment Book for multivariable calculus
susan colley's Vector Calculus text is more at the level you need. Also, my notes: supermath.info/MultivariateCalculus.html are ripe with errors and good ideas.

comment Why is the Hodge dual so essential?
You might enjoy pages 136-138 of supermath.info/ma430.pdf there I investigate a toy 5-dimensional E and M where the difference between the electric and magnetic field are more pronounced.
