Certain objects are able to influence the behavior of magnets when supercooled. Does this violate Maxwells equations?

The Meissner effect: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superco...eissner_effect
Superconductivity is a quantum effect and is a property of materials. Maxwell's equations only describe the fields; material properties must be injected via auxiliary equations.

I appreciate the quick response. What happens to the magnetic field of a supercooled magnet?

There are some exotic materials where ferromagnetism and superconductivity coexist. How exactly that works seems to be subject of an open debate.
