    Green's Theorem

    I only have a minor problem with this really... the integral is...
    \oint_{\Gamma}\{(y\exp{[x^2y^2]}-y)dx+(x\exp{[x^2y^2]}+x)dy\}
    ...where \Gamma, mapped counter-clockwise, is the circle of radius a with centre at the origin.

    So I identified P=y\exp{[x^2y^2]}-y and Q=x\exp{[x^2y^2]}+x and similarly \frac{\partial P}{\partial y}=2y^2x^2\exp{[x^2y^2]}+\exp{[x^2y^2]}-1 and \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 2\iint_{A}dA, but I'm not sure where to proceed from here. Is \iint_{A}dA the area of the circle?

    yes, it's the area of the circle. so your integral is equal to 2 \pi a^2.
