Field quantities: A geometrical perspective

1 Citation (Scopus)


Several geometrical modalities of representing electromagnetic (EM) field quantities are reviewed. The shortcomings arising from the representation as local vector functions are examined. Alternative geometrical frameworks that are capable to more accurately model the physics of the EM field are discussed. The study is intended to bring conceptual clarifications and to present incentives for including alternative perspectives within the scope of (basic) EM courses.
