electromagnetic field tensor

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.

alpha]] for time density fields was introduced as well as Maxwell's electromagnetic field tensor.
alpha]] is the electromagnetic field tensor, dV = dxdydz is an elementary thee-dimensional volume filled with this field.
Thus, there is no complete analogy between the physically observable components of the Riemann-Christoffel curvature tensor and Maxwell's electromagnetic field tensor.
Let us first call the following expression for the covariant components of the electromagnetic field tensor in terms of the covariant components of the canonical electromagnetic four-potential A:
alpha][beta]] and [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], constructed from the electromagnetic field tensor [F.
The electromagnetic field tensor in our unified field theory is therefore given by
projections of the electromagnetic field tensor Fa[beta] (read Chapter 3 in [2] for the details):
Not enough, Rainich also saw that the electromagnetic field tensor is performed from the congruences of two dual surfaces.
where the electromagnetic field tensor can now be expressed by the extended form (given in Section 3)
As in [1], for reasons that will be clear later, we define the electromagnetic field tensor F via the torsion tensor of spacetime (the anti-symmetric part of the connection [GAMMA]) as follows:
The four-dimensional components of the electromagnetic field tensor in canonical form are
