Are Maxwell's equations Lorentzcovariant?
Abstract
It is stated in many textbooks that Maxwell's equations are manifestly covariant when written down in tensorial form. We recall that tensorial form of Maxwell's equations does not secure their tensorial contents; they become covariant by postulating certain transformation properties of field functions. That fact should be stressed when teaching about the covariance of Maxwell's equations.
