Our earliest knowledge of electricity was of the static kind; later came the voltaic cell and direct current. But not until the discovery of alternating or oscillating currents could the phenomenon of electrical resonance make its appearance, Today, as we turn the dials of our radio receivers and “tune in” on the station we want it is recognized how widespread the application of electrical resonance has become. Nevertheless, it seems that few have given thought as to how this important… 
Steinmetz and the Concept of Phasor: A Forgotten Story
The original and creative way the concept of complex numbers, then almost unknown to engineers, was applied to electric circuits in sinusoidal steady-state is recovered.
Colpitts Oscillator: Design and Performance Optimization
From the very fundamental oscillator, a simple pendulum wherein there is a constant energy switch between potential and kinetic energy, oscillators have seen groundbreaking changes in setup,
Inertial and interference effects in optical spectroscopy
Interference between free-space and material components of the displacement current plays a key role in determining optical properties. This is illustrated by an analogy between the Lorentz optical
On Shannon and "Shannon's Formula"
It is interesting to note that as practical limitations were removed, several fundamental or principal limitations were established. For instance, Carnot showed that there was a fundamental limit to
Multiplex signal transmission and the development of sampling techniques: the work of Herbert Raabe in contrast to that of Claude Shannon
The interplay between multiplex signal transmission in telegraphy and telephony, and sampling methods is discussed, and it is interesting to compare Raabe's very practical approach with Shannon's abstract work.
Correction of the special theory of relativity: physical reality and nature of imaginary and complex numbers
It is demonstrated that regardless of the results of the MINOS, OPERA and ICARUS experiments, the current interpretation of the special theory of relativity (STR) has been refuted by the theoretical
Wireless control and selection of forces and torques - towards wireless engines
It is demonstrated that both direction and magnitude of forces can be controlled by the frequency of the applied external magnetic field and bi-directionally controllable torques are demonstrated, which leads to a wirelessly powered motor.
Improving Sensitivity of an Inductive Pulse Sensor for Detection of Metallic Wear Debris in Lubricants Using Parallel LC Resonance Method
Detection of small metallic wear debris is critical to identify abnormal wear conditions for prognosis of pending machinery failure. In this paper we applied an inductance–capacitance (LC) resonance

THE sensitiveness of the telephone for exceedingly small alternating currents is well known. It is probably as great as that of the most delicate Thomson galvanometer for direct currents. Just as

Oersted's discovery in 1819 of the magnetic field of force accompanying the motion of electricity marks the first step in the progress of that evolution of this electrical momentum concept.
Easy Lecture Experiment in Electric Resonance
AN experiment, exhibited by me in its early stages at the Royal Institution a year ago, and since shown here in various forms, on the overflow of one Leyden jar by the impulses accumulated from a
