We offer a conceptually straightforward and efficient way to formulate and solve problems on the electromagnetics of moving media based on a representation of Maxwell’s equations in terms of differential forms on spacetime together with junction conditions at moving interfaces. This framework is used to address several issues on the theoretical description underlying the interpretation of the Wilson–Wilson experiment.
