Abstract

FERREIRA, G.F. Leal. A very short introduction to the concise geometric algebra of the electromagnetism. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2006, vol.28, n.4, pp. 441-443. ISSN 1806-1117.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-47442006000400006.

A very short introduction of the geometric algebra applied to the electromagnetism is carried out in order to show that the Maxwell equations are contained in a single equation when such a concise formalism is employed.

Keywords : geometric algebra; multi-vectors; electromagnetism; Maxwell equations.
