Griffith's Introduction to Electrodynamics refers to this 4-vector equation as "the most elegant (and the simplest) formulation of Maxwell's equations." But does this encapsulate the homogeneous Maxwell Equations? I see how the temporal components lead to Gauss' Law, and I'm assuming, though I haven't shown it to myself, that the spatial components lead to the Ampere-Maxwell Law. What about Faraday's Law and the divergence of B?
