Abstract : A plea for the introduction, in advanced electromagnetics courses, of some basic differential geometric notions: covectors, differential forms, Hodge operators. The main advantages of this evolution should be felt in computational electromagnetism. It may also shed some new light on the concept of material isotropy.
