A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism
IN his deservedly celebrated treatise on “Sound,” the late Sir John Herschel felt himself justified in saying, “It is vain to conceal the melancholy truth. We are fast dropping behind. In MathematicsExpand

A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field
HE proposed Theory seeks for the origin of electromagnetic effects in the medium surrounding the electric or magnetic bodies, and assumes that they act on each other not immediately at a distance,Expand

A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field
This specification describes a novel apparatus and method for testing optical wave guides to determine the optical attenuation and to locate faults in the optical fiber. The light for test purposesExpand

Theory of Heat
THIS book is so well known, and has been of such good service to students, that it is scarcely necessary to do more than note the fact that a tenth edition of it has been issued. Only suchExpand

Illustrations of the Dynamical Theory of Gases
In view of the current interest in the theory of gases proposed by Bernoulli (Selection 3), Joule, Kronig, Clausius (Selections 8 and 9) and others, a mathematical investigation of the laws of motionExpand

IV. On the dynamical theory of gases
  • J. Maxwell
  • Engineering
  • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society…
Theories of the constitution of bodies suppose them either to be continuous and homogeneous, or to be composed of a finite number of distinct particles or molecules. In certain applications ofExpand

On the Dynamical Theory of Gases
The theory of transport processes in gases—such as diffusion, heat conduction, and viscosity—is developed on the basis of the assumption that the molecules behave like point-centres of force. TheExpand
