Spacetime metric from linear electrodynamics.
PHYS LETT B
466 - 470.
The Maxwell equations are formulated on an arbitrary (1 + 3)-dimensional manifold. Then, imposing a (constrained) linear constitutive relation between electromagnetic field (E, B) and excitation (D, H), we derive the metric of spacetime therefrom.
