hello.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i know that the differential form of maxwells equations is generally considered the most elegant and for the most part are easier to apply to most problems, and whichever one you choose integral or differential form you can always work through it.

i was wondering if anyone had any useful rules of thumb for which problems are better suited to differential form and which ones are better suited for integral form?

cheers
