Lorenz' work is remarkable, since it was performed in parallel with that of Maxwell. The reader will probably agree that the paternity suit must be decided in Lorenz' favour. it appears that the various authors of textbooks whi sinned against historical accuracy–the undersigned being regretfully one of them–should amend their references in future printings of their books!

Inspired by the legitimate note by Professor Van Bladel [l], about the paternity of retarded potentials in electromagnetics, and, by the way, also the Lorenz gauge, I take the liberty to continue the

It turns out that facts in relation to potentials depend on the postulates made, and whether the Lorenz condition is a choice or a consequence is discussed.
Lorenz, Lorentz, and the gauge
Briefly discusses work by L. Lorentz and H.A. Lorentz together with the concept of the Coulomb gauge.
Historical roots of gauge invariance
Gauge invariance is the basis of the modern theory of electroweak and strong interactions (the so called Standard Model). The roots of gauge invariance go back to the year 1820 when electromagnetism
The basics of gravitational wave theory
Einstein's special theory of relativity revolutionized physics by teaching us that space and time are not separate entities, but join as 'spacetime'. His general theory of relativity further taught
A note on the uniqueness of the Poynting vector and of the Maxwell tensor
Many alternatives to the classical Poynting vector P have been proposed, but they lack a property of locality that makes P special and makes it the right choice to represent the energy flux. We give
Molecular scattering of polarized light

On the Lorenz gauge
Although edge elements satisfactorily solve the eddy current problem, formulations allowing the use of standard, node‐based elements, are still looked for. But “well‐posed” formulations have been
Applied Differential Geometry ( A compendium )
The content of these notes is what "compendium" suggests: Not a tutorial, but a list, in logical order, of concepts of differential geometry that can serve in the study of PDE's of classical physics,
Fundamental limitations on 'warp drive' spacetimes
'Warp drive' spacetimes are useful as 'gedanken-experiments' that force us to confront the foundations of general relativity, and among other things, to precisely formulate the notion of
