I am interested in how the Lorentz maths were derived from the Maxwell electrodynamic and field equations. But not in a struct mathemetical sense as the math is outside my range but on a simpler conceptual level. For eg. contraction seems to have relevance wrt electron electrostatic fields and their interactions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there any relevance of relative simultaneity in the calculations of electrodynamics???

Was the mathematical expression of relative simultaneity in any way derived from the Maxwell maths or could it be??

Or is it directly a consequence of the clock synchronization convention that was added later with no correlation to electrodynamics???

Thanks
