I was wondering about the relativistic and covariant formulation of classical E&M and Maxwell's Equations. Does they have any major implication in engineering (not exclusively talking about electrical eng, but i think it might be the majorly affected)?

I've once heard that relativistic electrodynamics plays a role in artificial neural networks, but i couldn't find any related bibliography. So, to sum up

What are the major applications of relativistic electrodynamics to engineering?
