Forces of Ampère and Grassmann Between Current Elements

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


André-Marie Ampère was born in Pleymieux, near Lyon in France, in 1775. He never went to school because his father, who admired Jean-Jacques Rousseau, wished that Ampère taught himself guided only by his readings and interests. In 1801 he wrote his first important work, on the mathematical theory of games, and the success of this book gave him a position at l’Ecole Polytechnique de Paris (1804). There he became professor of analysis in 1809. He became member of the French Academy of Sciences in 1814. During 1807 to 1816 he worked intensely in chemistry and established experimentally that fluorine, chlorine and iodine are simple chemical elements. Beyond his interests in mathematics and chemistry he also worked with psychology and philosophy. He married twice and had a son and a daughter. He died in 1836.
