Definition: | set of equations relating the four vector quantities determining the electromagnetic field in a material medium or in vacuum and the two quantities electric current density and volumic electric charge
NOTE 1 – The Maxwell equations expressed in differential form are: $\mathrm{rot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}E=-\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{\partial \text{\hspace{0.17em}}B}{\partial \text{\hspace{0.17em}}t}$ $\text{div}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}D=\rho $ $\mathrm{rot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}H=J+\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{\partial \text{\hspace{0.17em}}D}{\partial \text{\hspace{0.17em}}t}$ $\text{div}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}B=0$
where , D and H are the four vector quantities determining the electromagnetic field, B is the electric current density, Jρ is the volumic electric charge and t is the time.
NOTE 2 – The Maxwell equations completely define the electromagnetic field in a given medium only together with the relations characterizing the medium, often called constitutive relations; in the case of a linear medium, these relations are expressed in terms of the permittivity, permeability, and conductivity of the medium. | ||
