...where $\displaystyle \Gamma$, mapped counter-clockwise, is the circle of radius $\displaystyle a$ with centre at the origin.

So I identified $\displaystyle P=y\exp{[x^2y^2]}-y$ and $\displaystyle Q=x\exp{[x^2y^2]}+x$ and similarly $\displaystyle \frac{\partial P}{\partial y}=2y^2x^2\exp{[x^2y^2]}+\exp{[x^2y^2]}-1$ and $\displaystyle \frac{\partial Q}{\partial x}=2y^2x^2\exp{[x^2y^2]}+\exp{[x^2y^2]}+1$.

Putting that into the double integral you end up with $\displaystyle 2\iint_{A}dA$, but I'm not sure where to proceed from here. Is $\displaystyle \iint_{A}dA$ the area of the circle?
