On the Solution of Maxwell?s First Order Equations

Year: 2006 Pages: 8
In an attempt to solve Maxwell's first order system of equations, starting from a given initial state, it is found that a consistent solution depending on the temporal evolution of the sources cannot be calculated. The well known retarded solutions of the second order equations, which are based on the introduction of potentials, turn out to be in disagreement with a direct solution of the first order system.
