ABSTRACT

In this paper, the Doppler Effect is considered on the basis of the modified Maxwell equations for
the electromagnetic field - with total time derivatives - in contrast to the partial derivatives in the "classical"
Maxwell equations. It is shown that the modified Maxwell equations contain a description of the Doppler
Effect in the form of O.E. Akimov [1,2]. The Doppler Effect takes place when waves of any nature (not only
electromagnetic) propagate in a homogeneous and isotropic continuous medium
