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 Mathematics

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,
Measuring Synchronisation and Scheduling Overheads in OpenMP
TLDR
A set of benchmarks to measure these classes of overhead for language constructs in OpenMP and signiicant diierences are observed, which suggest possible means of improving performance.
IV. On the dynamical theory of gases
  • J. Maxwell
  • Mathematics
    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 of
I. On governors
  • J. Maxwell
  • Materials Science
    Proceedings of the Royal Society of London
A Governor is a part of a machine by means of which the velocity of the machine is kept nearly uniform, notwithstanding variations in the driving-power or the resistance. Most governors depend on the
