Examples

a spherically symmetric Maxwellian, which is analytic at the origin as the other example is not, and is not restricted to any quadrant of an ndimensional space, but has a similar “ridge” of maximal values.

They move randomly, with a Maxwellian velocity distribution

A universe without gravity waves would be about as nonsensical as one with Coulomb's law, Gauss' law, Faraday's law, but no Maxwellian EM waves.

These result in large changes in magnetic fields that evolve in time, which are associated with large Maxwellian displacement currents, or equivalently electric fields.

If a Maxwellian demon exists, however, then it would appear possible the Clausius inequality would not hold.

Holger Lyre (2004) extends Worrall's original example of the continuity between wave optics and electromagnetism by considering the relationship between Maxwellian electrodynamics and Quantum Electrodynamics.

This amounts to a situation in which some scholars say go ahead and do that arty farty Maxwellian stuff but not in my backyard or vice versa.

This is a wave equation similar to that for a Maxwellian electromagnetic wave with a source.

It can be shown (DÃ¼rr et al. 1992) that probabilities for positions given by the quantum equilibrium distribution emerge naturally from an analysis of "equilibrium" for the deterministic dynamical system defined by Bohmian mechanics, in much the same way that the Maxwellian velocity distribution emerges from an analysis of classical thermodynamic equilibrium.
