(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Use the form of the Lorentz transformation matrixR, and the elcectromagnetic tensorF, and using:

[itex]\frac{\partial F_{\mu\nu}}{\partial x_{\lambda}}[/itex]+[itex]\frac{\partial F_{\nu\lambda}}{\partial x_{\mu}}[/itex]+[itex]\frac{\partial F_{\lambda\mu}}{\partial x_{\nu}}[/itex]=0

verify Faraday's law

curlE=-[itex]\frac{\partial\ B}{\partial t}[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to find out what the terms in the equation actually are. I found out that [itex]F_{\mu\nu}[/itex] is the Faraday tensor, but what are [itex]F_{\nu\lambda}[/itex], etc? My notes and textbooks really never explains this. I did spend quite a while trying to work out for myself what those terms mean, but I really have no clue.

Please help.
