Classical electromagnetic field

  • Electromagnetic wave [r]: 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. [e]
  • Electromagnetic radiation [r]: a collection of electromagnetic waves, usually of different wavelengths. [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]
  • Vector potential [r]: Add brief definition or description
