It is shown that once the Maxwell equations have been couched in terms of a system of first-order partial time derivatives, a novel type of energy density function becomes apparent. Analysis of some classical radiation and charge configurations suggests that the new measures are interesting alternatives to the conventional Poynting measures. In many… CONTINUE READING
