Review of Born-Infeld electrodynamics

  title={Review of Born-Infeld electrodynamics},
  author={Y. F. Alam and Adolf Behne},
Born–Infeld electrodynamics is motivated by the infinite self-energy of the point charge in Maxwell electrodynamics. In bi electrodynamics, an upper bound b is imposed on the electric field, thus limiting the self-energy of the point charge. This is a review paper in which we motivate the bi Lagrangian and from it derive the field equations. We find the stress–energy tensor in bi. We calculate the potential due to the point charge in bi. We find order b−2 wave solutions to bi in 1+1 dimensions… 



Standing wave solutions in Born–Infeld theory

Approximated solutions to Born-Infeld dynamics

A bstractThe Born-Infeld equation in the plane is usefully captured in complex language. The general exact solution can be written as a combination of holomorphic and anti-holomorphic functions.

Nonlinear Electrodynamics: Lagrangians and Equations of Motion

After a brief discussion of well‐known classical fields we formulate two principles: When the field equations are hyperbolic, particles move along rays like disturbances of the field; the waves

On the History of Unified Field Theories

The main theme is the unification of the electromagnetic and gravitational fields augmented by short-lived attempts to include the matter field described by Schrödinger’s or Dirac's equations.

On the History of Unified Field Theories. Part II. (ca. 1930–ca. 1965)

The present review intends to provide an overall picture of the research concerning classical unified field theory, worldwide, in the decades between the mid-1930 and mid-1960. Main themes are the

Shock relations in nonlinear electrodynamics

Foundations of the New Field Theory

THE new field equations proposed recently1 can be derived from either of two principles, the first being a rather obvious physical statement, the other an equally obvious mathematical postulate.
