This chapter presents the basic notions of electromagnetism, chiefly the balance laws in global and local form. The corresponding Maxwell’s differential equations and boundary conditions are then derived. Electromagnetic potentials are introduced along with gauge conditions. They are then applied to determine the electromagnetic field in various cases. Although the standpoint is nonrelativistic, the chapter also exhibits the Lorentz-invariant form of Maxwell’s equations, essential for any relativistic approach.

Keywords:   balance laws, Maxwell’s equations, Lorentz-invariant form, Poynting’s theorem, electromagnetic potentials, gauge, deformable media
