    Maxwell's equations - is there a bigger picture?

    Maxwell's Equations sometimes are satisfied and sometimes are not satisfied. Examples:

    1) Gauss' Law can be violated e.g. by a Gaussian beam of EM waves.
    2) Ampere's law leads to the equation
    grad(div(B)) - Δ (B) = -mu0*eps0*(d^2 B/dt^2) which is violated and then
    the wave equation: Δ(B) = mu0*eps0*(d^2 B/dt^2) is satisfied.
    Do you have any idea why?

    Re: Maxwell's equations - is there a bigger picture?

    Maxwell's equations are always satisfied.

    Do people's assumptions agree with Maxwell's equations? Not always.
