Abstract

Maxwell’s theory of electrodynamics describes electromagnetic fields in terms of the space and time variations of electromagnetic field components. In most treatises on electrodynamics, this theory is derived in a more-or-less inductive way starting from static situations, although there are notable exceptions: In Sommerfeld’s well-known books on theoretical physics, electrodynamics starts right away with the full set of Maxwell’s equations.
