- Clausius-Mossotti relation : connects the relative permittivity εr of a dielectric to the polarizability α of the atoms or molecules constituting the dielectric.
- Dot product : A type of vector multiplication in Euclidean spaces which produces a scalar result.
- Electromagnetism : Phenomena and theories regarding electricity and magnetism.
- Gaussian units : A centimeter-gram-second system of units often used in electrodynamics and special relativity.
- Intermolecular forces : Non-covalent forces between atoms and molecules; often synonymous with Van der Waals forces.
- Lorentz-Lorenz relation : An equation describing the relation between the density and index of refraction of a dielectric.
- Schrödinger equation : A differential equation of quantum mechanics, describing the spatial and temporal behavior of wave functions.
- 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).
- Stark effect : The shifting and splitting of spectral lines of atoms and molecules due to the presence of an external static electric field.
- Van der Waals forces : Weak forces between (closed-shell) atoms and molecules. Attractive for long distances, repulsive for short distances. Sometimes used as synonym for the attractive London (dispersion) force (the only attractive force between noble gases).
