# Lorenz or Lorentz?

@article{Bladel1991LorenzOL, title={Lorenz or Lorentz?}, author={Joris Van Bladel}, journal={IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine}, year={1991}, volume={33}, pages={69-69} }

Lorenz' work is remarkable, since it was performed in parallel with that of Maxwell. The reader will probably agree that the paternity suit must be decided in Lorenz' favour. it appears that the various authors of textbooks whi sinned against historical accuracy–the undersigned being regretfully one of them–should amend their references in future printings of their books!

Lorenz-Lorentz or Lorentz-Lorenz?

Inspired by the legitimate note by Professor Van Bladel [l], about the paternity of retarded potentials in electromagnetics, and, by the way, also the Lorenz gauge, I take the liberty to continue the…

Potential theory and the Lorenz condition

It turns out that facts in relation to potentials depend on the postulates made, and whether the Lorenz condition is a choice or a consequence is discussed.

Historical roots of gauge invariance

Gauge invariance is the basis of the modern theory of electroweak and strong interactions (the so called Standard Model). The roots of gauge invariance go back to the year 1820 when electromagnetism…

A note on the uniqueness of the Poynting vector and of the Maxwell tensor

- Mathematics

Many alternatives to the classical Poynting vector P have been proposed, but they lack a property of locality that makes P special and makes it the right choice to represent the energy flux. We give…
