SUMMARY

"Field Theory Concepts" is a new approach to the teaching and understanding of field theory. Exploiting formal analo- gies of electric, magnetic, and conduction fields and introducing generic concepts results in a transparently structured electomagnetic field theory. Highly illustrative terms alloweasyaccess to the concepts of curl and div which generally are conceptually demanding. Emphasis is placed on the static, quasistatic and dynamic nature of fields. Eventually, numerical field calculation algorithms, e.g. Finite Element method and Monte Carlo method, are presented in a concise yet illustrative manner
