# PDEs in SR?

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.
