Relationships between integration limits of Maxwell Equation

  1. Jan 17, 2015 #1
    I don't understand the relationships between the integration limits of Maxwell Equations (specifically the ones in integral form in matter)

    Is this related to Stokes/Gauss' Theorems? or something else?

    What to you mean by integration limits? The Maxwell equations in integral form lead to those in differential form by taking the appropriate limits, using the definitions of the differential operators curl and div through line and surface integrals, which are contracted to a point. From a modern point of view, the differential form of the Maxwell equations are the most natural form of the laws underlying electromagnetic phenomena.

    Would you say that's basically what Stokes/Divergence thereom is?
