By accounting for relativity in Maxwell’s Equations, Jeffimenko was able to factor in the delayed or “retarded” time that it takes for electromagnetic fields to travel through freespace and cause interactions. Since Maxwell’s Equations are easier to use with Potentials, rather than trying to solve for complex integrals, the regular potentials become “retarded potentials” because they are time delayed and by accounting for this tweak of physics in the math it we get right answers.
Jefimenko first published these equations in his text book on Electricity & Magnetism. They henceforth became known as “Jefimenko’s Equations” since no one could find any earlier discovery or publication besides his.
