Matter and motion by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

153 editions published between 1876 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published posthumously in 1888, this treatise by the first Cavendish Professor of Physics at Cambridge explores and explains the fundamental principles and laws that are the basis of elementary physics. Maxwell was at the forefront of physics and mathematics during the nineteenth century and his pioneering work brought together existing ideas to give 'a dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field'. This work inspired not only the applications of electromagnetic waves like fibre optics but also Einstein's theory of relativity. The text explains many

The scientific papers of James Clerk Maxwell by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

50 editions published between 1890 and 2010 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication in 1890 of the two-volume Scientific Papers of James Clerk Maxwell, edited by W. D. Niven, was one of the two objects of a committee formed 'for the purpose of securing a fitting memorial of him' (the other object being the commissioning of a marble bust for the Cavendish Laboratory). Before his death in 1879 at the age of 48, Clerk Maxwell had made major contributions to many areas of theoretical physics and mathematics, not least his discoveries in the fields of electromagnetism and of the kinetic theory of gases, which have
An elementary treatise on electricity by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

46 editions published between 1881 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert Einstein characterized the work of James Clerk Maxwell as the ""most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton."" Max Planck went even further, declaring that ""he achieved greatness unequalled, "" and Richard Feynman asserted that ""From a long view of the history of mankind - seen from, say, ten thousand years from now - there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the nineteenth century will be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the laws of electrodynamics."" Maxwell made numerous other contributions to the advancement of scien
A dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

Maxwell on Saturn's rings by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Clerk Maxwell's 1856 Adams Prize Essay, "On the Stability of the Motion of Saturn's Rings," forms the central body of this book and is the work that first established his reputation as one of the greatest mathematical physicists of any generation. It is surrounded by previously unpublished materials written both before and after the essay was completed. The former group consists of sixteen letters - to William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), George Gabriel Stokes, Peter Guthrie Tait, and other friends and colleagues - written while Maxwell was working out the problems and preparing the essay for publication, and they reveal both the sureness of his approach and false starts and errors. The post-essay documents include a review of the work by George Biddell Airy, the Astronomer Royal, and correspondence with the Harvard astronomer George Bond in 1863. Here Maxwell attempts to extend his analysis to include the effects of collisions among the particles of the ring, employing his own newly developed kinetic theory of gases. The editors' introduction provides a historical context for Maxwell's contribution
