    SR can be used to describe E&M in a local inertial frame, can anyone tell me a book or paper, that describes E&M in a curved space-time? Thank you in advanced

    Gauge Fields, Knots and Gravity by John Baez. I think.

    MTW's gravitation talks about Maxwell's equations in curved space-time. So does Wald's general relativity.

    Online, http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Maxwell's_equations&oldid=188634361
    discusses Maxwell's equations using both differential forms and in the so-called "traditional formulation".

    I'm not sure how much this information will help, not knowing your background.
