- Ampere's equation : An expression for the magnetic force between two electric current-carrying wire segments.
- Electromagnetic wave : A change, periodic in space and time, of an electric field E(r,t) and a magnetic field B(r,t); a stream of electromagnetic waves, referred to as electromagnetic radiation, can be seen as a stream of massless elementary particles, named photons.
- Electromagnetism : Phenomena and theories regarding electricity and magnetism.
- Faraday's law (electromagnetism) : States that a change in magnetic flux generates an electromotive force (EMF).
- Gaussian units : A centimeter-gram-second system of units often used in electrodynamics and special relativity.
- Hall effect : Describes the behavior of moving charges in a magnetic field.
- Hendrik Antoon Lorentz : Dutch theoretical physicist (1853 - 1928)
- James Clerk Maxwell : (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases.
- Lorentz (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Magnetic constant : A physical constant in the International System of Units (SI) relating mechanical force and electric current in classical vacuum with a defined value μ0 = 4π × 10−7 N/A2.
- Magnetic field : Vector field H caused by permanent magnets, conduction currents, and displacement currents.
- Magnetic induction : A divergence-free electromagnetic field, denoted B, determining the Lorentz force upon a moving charge, and related to the magnetic field H.
- Maxwell equations : Mathematical equations describing the interrelationship between electric and magnetic fields; dependence of the fields on electric charge- and current- densities.
- Special relativity : Theory of the effects of motion on observations of things such as length, time, mass and energy. The theory is based on the postulates that all laws of physics are the same in all inertial reference systems, and that the vacuum speed of light is a universal constant, independent of the speed of the source.
- Speed of light : A physical constant c describing the speed of electromagnetic radiation in vacuum. In the International System of Units the metre is the distance light travels in classical vacuum in 1/c seconds, using the defined value c = c0 ≡ 299 792 458 m/s (exact).
- Vector field : A vector function on the three-dimensional Euclidean space .
- Vector product : Vector operation of two vectors, A & B, yielding a new vector perpendicular to A & B with magnitude |A||B|sin().
