comment Point me the primordial and intuitive concepts about this operations on physics
For an intro to EM, "Electricity and Magnetism" by Purcell is what I used. It was great.

Well, I'm a physicist and I think I understand electric charge pretty well, but that page still doesn't make sense to me. I suggest finding a better resource.

what are a, b, and c? It doesn't look like you ever defined them.

comment Fourier-like expansion of a closed curve in 2D
We can also think of it as just a usual complex-valued Fourier transform, since complex numbers can represent two dimensions. (I now see that Greg P pointed this out in the comments to the main question.)

comment What is an example of an application of a higher order derivative ($y^{(n)}$, $n\geq 4$)?
I've heard 4th, 5th, and 6th derivatives called "snap", "crackle", and "pop".

I don't completely understand your answer. Can you give an example of a function discontinuous at the origin as you were mentioning, please?

@Qiochu Thanks. How about derivatives?
