PDEs in SR?

  1. Apr 5, 2007 #1
    SR uses spacetime diagrams which is what is used to solve hyperbolic and parabolic PDEs but what is the connection between SR and PDEs? Are there PDEs in SR? I have done a first course in SR using Taylor and Wheeler but don't seem to recall any.

    The Maxwell Equations for electromagnetism are PDEs.
