Non-Covariant Galilean Electrodynamics

A. I. A. Adey
Year: 1995
Keywords: electrodynamic phenomena, relativistic, Lorentz covariance
The problem of how the movement of bodies affects electrodynamic phenomena is an open one in classical electrodynamics (as opposed to relativistic electrodyamics) because we cannot use the Lorentz covariance of Maxwell's equations in such context.  We propose that this problem be solved through the concept of current and not via the notion of Galilean covariance or action-at-a-distance force laws of Weber's type.  The resulting theory is shown to be consistent with all experiments to which it is applicable.
