In this sense, it is expected that Maxwell's equations contain some (hidden) information about vacuum induced fluctuations.
Physicists explore skyrmions, tiny regions of reversed magnetization (named after Tony Skyrme who first proposed them during the 1960s) that cannot be described by Maxwell's equations.
The only approach to reach this target is by using a numerical method to solve Maxwell's equations describing the flux distribution inside the machine, taking into consideration the nonlinearity in the magnetic characteristics of its core.
Although I do not read much literature, and know how to wire a plug, I also know my way around the laws of thermodynamics and Maxwell's equations, for example.

Unlike the regularity analysis for elliptic boundary value problems in domains with geometric singularities, where there exists a unified theory based on the shift theorem (see [1-3]), the regularity analysis of the solution of Maxwell's equations has several interpretations.
is determined by a pair of second order partial differential equations (wave equations), which in turn are derived from Maxwell's equations.
Newton's laws, Maxwell's equations, quantum physics and relativity theory have succeeded by relating mathematical harmony to physical reality.
