Constraints on the structure of relativistic classical fields

  • E. Comay
General Physics


The equations of motion of relativistic classical linear fields are discussed. It is proved that if some additional postulates are satisfled then the laws of systems of this kind of classical fields are completely analogous to those of classical electrodynamics. Implications on other classical field theories are discussed.
