The electric flux density D is given by

div Df
where ρf is the volume density of free charges.

D is related to the electric field E and the polarization P via

The time derivative of D is known as the displacement current which appears in one of Maxwell's equations.
curl H = J + dD/dt

The equivalent magnetic quantity to D is the magnetic flux density, B
