However, due to their intuitive formulation and beauty, we begin by stating without proof Maxwell’s equations in integral form, and then the differential equations can be derived from well-known theorems of vector calculus.
Technical Notes on Classical Electromagnetism, with exercises
In order to obtain Maxwell’s equations in differential form in vacuum, one applies two theorems of calculus on the corresponding integral equations.
