I know this has been discussed here previously, but alas, I lost track. =20(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would any of you be so kind as to summarize the points / counter points=20

of Jefimenko's work?

From what little I remember, I got the impression=20

that Jefimenko is merely taking a retarded potential perspective (

propagation time considerations) to construct relativity rather than=20

starting with Lorentz transformations. I wanted to look at it further (

and have two of his books), but have not yet.

So, for those of you that=20

have looked at it, I'd appreciate a summary of the points, counter=20

points, and lingering unknowns regarding the utility and soundness of=20

the Jefimenko approach.

Thanks in advance,

Marc
