e·lec·tro·mag·net·ism

 (ĭ-lĕk′trō-măg′nĭ-tĭz′əm)
n.
1. The physics of electricity and magnetism.
2. An interaction between electricity and magnetism, as when an electric current or a changing electric field generates a magnetic field, or when a changing magnetic field generates an electric field.

References in classic literature ?
I was very stupid about machines, so I was to be greatly occupied with them; I had no memory for classification, so it was particularly necessary that I should study systematic zoology and botany; I was hungry for human deeds and humane motions, so I was to be plentifully crammed with the mechanical powers, the elementary bodies, and the phenomena of electricity and magnetism. A better-constituted boy would certainly have profited under my intelligent tutors, with their scientific apparatus; and would, doubtless, have found the phenomena of electricity and magnetism as fascinating as I was, every Thursday, assured they were.

He informed that sufficient facilities for Computer Science students regarding Software Engineering, Robotics, programing and simulation, computing, advance network, artificial intelligence, digital, electricity and magnetism, advance electronic, laptop and research labs, smart class room and digital library are available here at MAJU.
Walecka presents a textbook he developed from his lecture notes for a freshman physics course on electricity and magnetism. There are many such textbooks, he admits, but this one provides what he believes to be a clear, self-contained calculus-based introduction to a subject that, along with classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and modern physics, lies at the heart of today's physics curriculum.
Approximately 2,000 community members attended the all-day event, which featured more than 60 booths offering activities, including crime scene investigation, cryptography, a Lego "Great Ball Contraption," electricity and magnetism, infrared waves, the physics of flight, reptile genetics and robotics.
Whenever consulting a new doctor, I always make it a point to explain to him (or her), before a medical test, my unusually extreme sensitivity to electricity and magnetism. I also noticed I am sensitive to certain chemicals.

If magnetic monopoles are finally detected, it would get rid of the current asymmetry between electricity and magnetism - something that bugs a lot of physicists - and prove, once and for all, that the two are truly analogous.
