Review of Classical Electromagnetism

  • André Koch Torres Assis
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 66)


The study of nature and the laws which it follows is one of the main goals of scientists. Physicists, in particular, dedicate themselves to research mechanical, gravitational, electric, magnetic, optical, and nuclear phenomena. In this Chapter we will concentrate on the study of classical electromagnetism. Most of the historical information presented here is from the original sources which we quote and from the following authoritative books: (O’Rahilly, 1965), (Whittaker, 1973) and (Mach, 1926).
