Maxwell's equations
Maxwell's equations are a set of four partial
differential equations that describe and predict the behavior of electromagnetic
waves in free space, in dielectrics, and at conductordielectric boundaries.
Maxwell's equations expand upon and unify the laws of Ampere, Faraday, and
Gauss, and form the foundation of modern electromagnetic theory.
