1161. The science of electricity is in that state in which every part of it requires experimental investigation; not merely for the discovery of new effects, but, what is just now of far more importance, the development of the means by which the old effects are produced, and the consequent more accurate determination of the first principles of action of the most extraordinary and universal power in nature: —and to those philosophers who pursue the inquiry zealously yet cautiously, combining… 

Bancalari's role in Faraday's discovery of diamagnetism and the successive progress in the understanding of magnetic properties of matter

Summary The events and thoughts which brought Michael Faraday to the discovery of diamagnetism in the year 1845 are reviewed and commented. The contribution of Bancalari, namely the discovery of

Replication of Coulomb's Torsion Balance Experiment

A long-standing issue in history of science is whether or not the fundamental law of electrostatics was justified experimentally in the late 1700s. By that time, following Isaac Newton’s mechanics,

Elementary Micromechanics of Heterogeneous Media

The introductory and more elementary ideas and results of micromechanics of heterogeneous media are collected in the survey. The central problem under discussion is “homogenization.” It replaces such

Many-body Effects in Anisotropic Dielectric Colloids: Polarization, Electrostatic Interactions, and Van der Waals Forces

We study the polarizability of colloidal particles, as well as their interparticle interactions in the presence or absence of an external electric field. To this end, we employ the Coupled Dipole

Effective Field Method in the Theory of Heterogeneous Media

The main attention is focused on the combination of the effective field and numerical methods that yields efficient numerical algorithms for the calculation of effective properties and detailed fields in periodic and random composite materials.

Measuring the dielectric properties of materials. Ninety-year development from low-frequency techniques to broadband spectroscopy and high-frequency imaging

The development of methods for measuring the dielectric properties of materials is reviewed with a special view to the background of the past 90 years. The close correlation between progress in
