There are various **mathematical descriptions of the electromagnetic field** that are used in the study of electromagnetism, one of the four fundamental forces of nature. In this article three approaches are discussed, generally the equations are in terms of electric and magnetic fields, potentials, and charges with currents.

### Famous quotes containing the words field, descriptions and/or mathematical:

“Frankly, I’d like to see the government get out of war altogether and leave the whole *field* to private industry.”

—Joseph Heller (b. 1923)

“Our Lamaze instructor . . . assured our class . . . that our cervix muscles would become “naturally numb” as they swelled and stretched, and deep breathing would turn the final explosions of pain into “manageable discomfort.” This *descriptions* turned out to be as accurate as, say a steward advising passengers aboard the Titanic to prepare for a brisk but bracing swim.”

—Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

“As we speak of poetical beauty, so ought we to speak of *mathematical* beauty and medical beauty. But we do not do so; and that reason is that we know well what is the object of mathematics, and that it consists in proofs, and what is the object of medicine, and that it consists in healing. But we do not know in what grace consists, which is the object of poetry.”

—Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
