This second volume of James Clerk Maxwell's correspondence and manuscript papers begins in mid-1862 with his first reference reports for the Royal Society, and concludes in December 1873 shortly before the formal inauguration of the Cavendish Laboratory. The documents describe his involvement with the wider scientific community in Victorian Britain, and the period of his scientific maturity. In the years 1862-73 Maxwell wrote the classic works on statistical molecular theory and field physics, including the Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism, which established his unique status in the history of science. His letters and drafts of this period provide unique insight into this work, which remains fundamental to modern physics. Few of the manuscripts reproduced here have received prior publication in other than truncated form, and the volume includes Maxwell's correspondence with G.G. Stokes, Lord Kelvin and P.G. Tait. The edition is annotated with a full historical commentary and will be fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of science or physics.
Siegel's close analysis of the original texts - with careful attention to the equations as well as to the words - reveals that mechanical modeling played a crucial role in Maxwell's initial conceptualizations of the displacement current and the electromagnetic character of light.
Divergencies in quantum field theory referred to as OC infinite zero-point energyOCO have been a problem for 70 years. Renormalization has always been considered an unsatisfactory remedy. In 1985 it was found that Maxwell''s equations generally do not have solutions that satisfy the causality law. An additional term for magnetic dipole currents corrected this shortcoming. Rotating magnetic dipoles produce magnetic dipole currents, just as rotating electric dipoles in a material like barium titanate produce electric dipole currents. Electric dipole currents were always part of Maxwell''s equations. This book shows that the correction of Maxwell''s equations eliminates the infinite zero-point energy in quantum electrodynamics. In addition, it presents many more new results. Contents: Monopole, Dipole, and Multipole Currents; Hamiltonian Formalism; Quantization of the Pure Radiation Field; KleinOCoGordon Equation and Vacuum Constants. Readership: Senior undergraduates, graduate students, researchers and academics in quantum, atomic, theoretical, mathematical and nuclear physics."
The problem of scattering of electromagnetic waves by a closed, bounded, smooth, perfectly conducting surface immersed in vacuum is considered and a method for determining the scattered electric and magnetic field vectors (solutions of the homogeneous Maxwell equations satisfying the well known boundary conditions on the surface and the Silver-Muller radiation condition at infinity) everywhere exterior to the surface is presented. Specifically, two integral equations are derived, one for each scattered field vector. These equations are coupled. The kernels of the equations are dyadic functions of position and can be derived from the solutions of standard interior and exterior potential problems. Once these dyadic kernels are determined for a particular surface geometry the integral equations can be solved by iteration for the wave number k being sufficiently small. Alternatively, the scattered fields in the integral equations may be expanded in a power series of the wave number k and recursion formulas be found for the unknown coefficients in the expansions by equating equal power of k. As a check, the method is applied to the problem of scattering of a plane electromagnetic wave by a perfectly conducting sphere. The first two terms in the low frequency expansions of the electric and magnetic scattered fields are found and are shown to be in complete agreement with known results. (Author).
James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) is generally considered the most importantmathematical physicist in the period between Newton and Einstein. His work, like theirs, exhibitsrange as well as depth and extends from his grand synthesis of electrical, magnetic, and opticalphenomena in the theory of electromagnetic fields to his contributions to the kinetic theory ofgases and its generalization into statistical mechanics.Maxwell on Saturn's Rings (The MIT Press,1983) focused on the early work that confirmed Maxwell's scientific promise. The present volumedeals with the evolution of Maxwell's overview of atomic and statistical physics and with his workon the kinetic theory of transport phenomena in gases. It includes 92 documents and papers spanningthe years 1859-1879. Among these are previously unpublished notes, drafts, and calculations andcorrespondence with Peter Guthrie Tait, William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), Herbert Spencer, GeorgeGabbriel Stokes, Simon Newcomb, and others.The reader can trace Maxwell's insights from theirinception to their fruition in the fully worked-out formal papers and shorter communications toNature that are also included. The documents reveal the stages through which key concepts passed -such as the idea that diffusion, viscosity, and heat conduction in gases are parallel dynamicalprocesses expressed in terms of the transfer of mass, momentum, and energy - and show Maxwell'sskill in balancing abstract philosophical generalization with concrete practical detail.The editorshave provided a comprehensive introduction that places the material in historical context. Aforthcoming volume on thermodynamics and statistical mechanics will conclude their presentation ofMaxwell's scientific development.Elizabeth Garber and Stephen G.
