  • 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. [e]
