It is common knowledge that Maxwell's electromagnetic equations are invariant under relativistic transformations. However the relativistic invariance of Maxwell's equations has certain heretofore over-looked peculiarities. These peculiarities point out to the need of reexamining the physical significance of some basic electromagnetic formulas and equations.
