irrotational field
vector field characterized by a vector having zero rotation

Note 1 to entry: Any conservative field is an irrotational field, but an irrotational field is only a conservative field in a simply connected domain, i.e. a domain such that any path between two points can be continuously transformed into any other path between the same points, staying within the domain.

champ vectoriel dont le rotationnel est nul

Note 1 à l'article: Tout champ conservatif est un champ irrotationnel, mais un champ irrotationnel n’est un champ conservatif que dans un domaine simplement connexe, c.-à-d. un domaine tel que tout chemin entre deux points peut être transformé de façon continue en un autre chemin quelconque entre les mêmes points en restant dans le domaine.
