Per Wikipedia, in vector calculus, divergence is a vector operator that measures the magnitude of a vector field’s source or sink at a given point, in terms of a signed scalar. More technically, the divergence represents the volume density of the outward flux of a vector field from an infinitesimal volume around a given point.
The common notation for the divergence is –
∇ · F
This is a convenient mnemonic, where
Del, or nabla, is an operator used in mathematics, in particular, in vector calculus, as a vector differential operator, usually represented by the nabla symbol ∇
The dot denotes an operation reminiscent of the dot product: take the components of ∇, apply them to the components of F, and sum the results. The name “dot product” is derived from the centered dot ” · ” that is often used to designate this operation.
The final component of the logo is a blackboard which represents learning. The academy provides the learning environment as a (dot product) – take the sum of knowledge available and applies them to the components of learning (classroom, people, supplies & tools, and freedoms of community and instruction) to provide the results.
