Maxwell formulated the laws of electromagnetism by hydrodynamic analogy, basing them on Faraday’s concept of fields. The Maxwell equations constitute fundamental laws of physics, as recognized in Einstein’s special theory of relativity.We have, so far, followed these pioneers’ footsteps in arriving at Maxwell’s equations, the physical implications of which are formally discussed in this chapter.
