We are looking for linear with respect to observations optimal estimates of solutions and right-hand sides of Maxwell equations called minimax or guaranteed estimates. We develop constructive methods for finding these estimates and estimation errors which are expressed in terms of solutions to special variational equations and prove that Galerkin approximations of the obtained variational equations converge to their exact solutions.
