**Observers and Splitting Structures in Relativistic Electrodynamics**

by Bernhard Auchmann, Stefan Kurz

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 93

**Description**:

We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map fields and equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to three-dimensional observer's space. We focus on a minimal set of mathematical structures that are directly motivated by the language of the physical theory.
