**Observers and Splitting Structures in Relativistic Electrodynamics**

**Bernhard Auchmann, Stefan Kurz**-

**arXiv**

We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.
