Lorentz-covariant electromagnetic fields in (N+1)-spacetime—An axiomatic approach to special relativity
Abstract An axiomatic approach is presented in a coherently structured, deductive manner leads to a system of Lorentz-covariant electromagnetic field equations in ( N + 1 ) -spacetime, including the
Observers and splitting structures in relativistic electrodynamics
TLDR
A relativistic splitting structure is introduced as a means to map fields and equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space?time to three-dimensional observer?s space, enabling a compact, yet profound analysis of the problems at hand.
The electromagnetic field equations for moving media
In this paper a formulation of the field equation for moving media is developed by the generalization of an axiomatic geometric formulation of the electromagnetism in vacuum (Ivezi\'{c} T 2005 Found.
A non-electromagnetic wavefield in affine (N+1)-spacetime with covariance properties under a Lorentz-type of transformation
Abstract A non-electromagnetic wavefield is constructed that shows covariance properties under a Lorentz-type of transformation of the relevant space–time coordinates and associated field and source
RELATIVISTIC ELECTRODYNAMICS: VARIOUS POSTULATE AND RATIOCINATION FRAMEWORKS
Presently various models consistent with Einstein's Special Relativity theory are explored. Some of these models have been introduced previously, but additional models are possible, as shown here.
Maxwell's Equations in Accelerated Reference Frames and their Application in Computational Electromagnetism
In many engineering applications the interaction between the electromagnetic field and moving bodies is of great interest. E.g., motional induced eddy currents have to be taken into account correctly
Non-Relativistic Scattering by Time-Varying Bodies and Media
We are interested in first order v/c velocity effects in scattering problems involving motion of media and scatterers. Previously constant velocities have been considered for scattering by
Snell's Law for the Poynting Vector in a Semi-infinite Dielectric Moving Perpendicularly to the Surface
Abstract Snell's law for the Poynting vector is obtained for the case of a semi-infinite, non-dispersive (in its proper frame), isotropic and linear dielectric that is moving in a direction
Losslessness in Nonlinear Kirchhoff Circuits and in Relativity Theory
Kirchhoff circuits are of importance not only for studying electrical phenomena but are ideally suited to model a broad range of physical systems for purposes where conservation of power and energy
THE INTRINSIC DERIVATIVE AND CENTRIFUGAL FORCES IN GENERAL RELATIVITY: II. APPLICATIONS TO CIRCULAR ORBITS IN SOME FAMILIAR STATIONARY AXISYMMETRIC SPACETIMES
The tools developed in a preceding article for interpreting spacetime geometry in terms of all possible space-plus-time splitting approaches are applied to circular orbits in some familiar stationary
