  • Coulomb's law [r]: An inverse-square distance law, like Newton's gravitational law, describing the forces acting between electric point charges; also valid for the force between magnetic poles. [e]
  • Derivative [r]: The rate of change of a function with respect to its argument. [e]
  • Divergence theorem [r]: A theorem relating the flux of a vector field through a surface to the vector field inside the surface. [e]
  • Electric displacement [r]: a vector field D in a dielectric; D is proportional to the outer electric field E. [e]
  • Electric field [r]: force acting on an electric charge—a vector field. [e]
  • Gauss' law (magnetism) [r]: States that the total magnetic flux through a closed surface is zero; this means that magnetic monopoles do not exist. [e]
  • Helmholtz decomposition [r]: Decomposition of a vector field in a transverse (divergence-free) and a longitudinal (curl-free) component. [e]
  • James Clerk Maxwell [r]: (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases. [e]
  • Magnetic induction [r]: A divergence-free electromagnetic field, denoted B, determining the Lorentz force upon a moving charge, and related to the magnetic field H. [e]
  • Maxwell equations [r]: Mathematical equations describing the interrelationship between electric and magnetic fields; dependence of the fields on electric charge- and current- densities. [e]
  • Spherical polar coordinates [r]: Angular coordinates on a sphere: longitude angle φ, colatitude angle θ [e]
  • Vector field [r]: A vector function on the three-dimensional Euclidean space . [e]
