# XIII. On electrical motions in a spherical conductor

@article{LambXIIIOE, title={XIII. On electrical motions in a spherical conductor}, author={H. Lamb}, journal={Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London}, pages={519 - 549} }

This paper treats of the motions of electricity produced in a spherical conductor by any electric or magnetic operations outside it. The investigation was undertaken some time ago in illustration of Maxwell’s theory of Electricity. This theory is so remarkable, more especially in the part which it assigns to dielectric media in the propagation of electromagnetic effects, that it seemed worth while to attack some problem in which all the details of the electrical processes could be submitted to… Expand

His contributions to the reformulation of Maxwell's equations and the understanding of electromagnetic wave propagation along the external region of transmission lines leads naturally to his researches regarding the electromagnetic diffusion process inside the line conductors and his subsequent realization that the circuital parameters are not always so.

The direct solution of the Maxwell equations (less the displacement current term) had to await the development of modern continuum methods to yield the field everywhere in, and around, the devices of interest, and this then permitted the application of theMaxwell stress tensor. Expand
