- Coulomb's law : 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.
- Curl : A vector operator that describes the rotation of a vector field.
- Displacement current : Time derivative of the electric displacement D; Maxwell's correction to Ampère's law.
- Divergence theorem : A theorem relating the flux of a vector field through a surface to the vector field inside the surface.
- Divergence : A first order differential vector operator acting on a vector field resulting in a scalar function.
- Electric field : force acting on an electric charge—a vector field.
- 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.
- Field (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Field (mathematics) : An algebraic structure with operations generalising the familiar concepts of real number arithmetic.
- Helmholtz decomposition : Decomposition of a vector field in a transverse (divergence-free) and a longitudinal (curl-free) component.
- Identity matrix : A square matrix with ones on the main diagonal and zeroes elsewhere: the identity element for matrix multiplication.
- James Clerk Maxwell : (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases.
- Lorentz force : Force on an electrically charged particle that moves through a magnetic and an electric field.
- 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.
- Max Euwe : Dutch chess player (1901-81), world champion from 1935-37, and President of International Chess Federation (FIDE) from 1970-78.
- Maxwell equations : Mathematical equations describing the interrelationship between electric and magnetic fields; dependence of the fields on electric charge- and current- densities.
- Neighbour-sensing model : 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.
- Stokes' theorem : The integral of a form over the boundary of a manifold equals the integral of the exterior derivative over the manifold.
