Main Question or Discussion Point

I got a master degree in physics and I still found that this is difficult to expalin Faraday's law of induction within the context of special relativity. Most of the textbooks I found only shows that Maxwell equations are consistent with Lorentz transformation. Those books do not really derived them from inverse square law and special relativity. Although I sucessfully derived the other laws of electromagnetism (that is the Maxwell equations other than the one describing the law of induction) in terms of relativity.
Could someone send me the derivation of Faraday's law or just simply the Faraday's law cannot be explained by special relatvity?

I already sucessfully derived Faraday's law of induction from inverse square law and special relativity. Thank you for anyone paid attention to my question. However, I got another question about 4 vector potential and already posted. Please take some time to look at it and see whether you could help me or not?

Jackson's text Classical Mechanics takes Maxwell's equations and places them in tensor form. That derivation should be of help to you.

An interesting derivation using the inverse square law, special relativity and a velocity of propogation equal to light can be seen at johnwilliams22dothi5dotcom. Faraday's law can be derived from this, since when the emitting particle accelerates different distances from the particle experience different speeds of the particle (since the speed of light is not infinite). This causes a circulation of electrical force. Is your derivation anyway similar.
