electromagnetic field tensor

[i¦lek·trō·mag′ned·ik ′fēld ‚ten·sər]
(electromagnetism)
An antisymmetric, second-rank Lorentz tensor, whose elements are proportional to the electric and magnetic fields; the Maxwell field equations can be expressed in a simple form in terms of this tensor.

where [F.sup.[mu][nu]] is the electromagnetic tensor, h is the Higgs boson, and [F.sub.h] is the coupling, the amplitude of the two-photon decay of the Higgs is [32]
Secondly, the electromagnetic tensor for metamaterials with a multilayered structure is still anisotropic.
In this case the gravitational tensor [[PHI].sub.[mu]V] and electromagnetic tensor [F.sub.[mu]V] are differential functions of the potentials of fields in the form of derivatives of coordinates and time.
