PROF. H. A. WILSON is best known for his experimental researches, but this book shows that he is also able to give clear expositions of the more theoretical aspects of modern physics. As he has himself recognised, the title is elastic, and not everyone will agree with his interpretation of it. In particular, most examinations demand a greater knowledge of the newer experimental methods and less of mathematical physics than is given here. The outlines of electromagnetic theory and electron… 
Historical note on relativistic theories of electromagnetism
Quantum electrodynamics is the well-accepted theory. However, we feel it is useful to look at formalisms that provide alternative ways to describe light, because in the recent years the development
This paper gives an overview of the spin structure of the nucleon with emphasis on a pedagogical presentation of the tools used to study this fundamental property of protons and neutrons. While many

lution parameter of Horwitz, the analysis of the action-at-a-distance concept, presented recently by Chubykalo and Smirnov-Rueda, and the analysis of the claimed ‘longitudity’ of the antisymmetric
Journal of Theoretics Exploring The Vacuum
The historical progress in our understanding of what actually comprises the vacuum of space is traced here, as is the presence of what has become known as the Zero-Point Energy (ZPE) in the vacuum.
The Weinberg Formalism and a New Look at the Electromagnetic Theory
In the first part of this paper we review several formalisms which give alternative ways for describing the light. They are: the formalism `baroque' and the Majorana-Oppenheimer form of

Although gauge theories took the centre stage in theoretical physics only in this century, they are the rule, not the exception. The two standard examples of gauge theories are Maxwell’s theory for
Quantum mechanics
Quantum mechanics (QM) is the modern physical theory of very small (microscopic) systems, typically atomic-sized or smaller. Along with Einstein's theory of relativity, QM represented a major
The making of the Standard Model
The history of the formation of the Standard Model is reviewed, with a focus on some of the misunderstandings and false starts that went along with this progress, and why some steps were not taken until long after they became possible.
The Classical Electron Problem
In this paper, we construct a parallel image of the conventional Maxwell theory by replacing the observer-time by the proper-time of the source. This formulation is mathematically, but not
Variation of physical constants, redshift and the arrow of time
Theories of fundamental physics as well as cosmology must ultimately not only account for the structure and evolution of the universe and the physics of fundamental interactions, but also lead to an
