- 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]} - Curl [r]: A vector operator that describes the rotation of a vector field.
^{[e]} - Displacement current [r]: Time derivative of the electric displacement
**D**; Maxwell's correction to Ampère's law.^{[e]} - Divergence theorem [r]: A theorem relating the flux of a vector field through a surface to the vector field inside the surface.
^{[e]} - Divergence [r]: A first order differential vector operator acting on a vector field resulting in a scalar function.
^{[e]} - Electric field [r]: force acting on an electric charge—a vector field.
^{[e]} - 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]} - Field (disambiguation) [r]:
*Add brief definition or description* - Field (mathematics) [r]: An algebraic structure with operations generalising the familiar concepts of real number arithmetic.
^{[e]} - Helmholtz decomposition [r]: Decomposition of a vector field in a transverse (divergence-free) and a longitudinal (curl-free) component.
^{[e]} - Identity matrix [r]: A square matrix with ones on the main diagonal and zeroes elsewhere: the identity element for matrix multiplication.
^{[e]} - James Clerk Maxwell [r]: (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases.
^{[e]} - Lorentz force [r]: Force on an electrically charged particle that moves through a magnetic and an electric field.
^{[e]} - Magnetic field [r]: Vector field
**H**caused by permanent magnets, conduction currents, and displacement currents.^{[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]} - Max Euwe [r]: Dutch chess player (1901-81), world champion from 1935-37, and President of International Chess Federation (FIDE) from 1970-78.
^{[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]} - Neighbour-sensing model [r]: Proposed hypothesis of the fungal morphogenesis, which suggests that each hypha in the fungal mycelium generates certain abstract field that decreases when increasing the distance.
^{[e]} - Stokes' theorem [r]: The integral of a form over the boundary of a manifold equals the integral of the exterior derivative over the manifold.
