CHAPTER I FUNDAMENTAL IDEAS § 1. The fundamental equations for free aether. In Maxwell's electromagnetic theory the state of the aether in the vicinity of a point (x, y, z) at time t is specified by means of two vectors E and H which satisfy the circuital relations * Cc***' idE .„ dH ... TOiH=s-c-dt> rotE = '~c^t and the solenoidal or sourceless conditions divE=0, div#=0. If right-handed rectangular axes are used the symbolf rot H denotes the vector whose components are of type dHt dffy dy dz ' the three components of H being Hx, Hy, H2 respectively. The symbol div H denotes the divergence of H, i.e. the quantity dx dy dz The vector E is called the electric displacement or electric force and H the magnetic force. The quantity c represents the * The equations are written In the symmetrical form in which they were presented by 0. Heavisjde, Electrical Papers, Vol. 1, § 30, and H. Hertz, Electric Waves, p. 138.

Originally published in 1915, this textbook 'is intended as an introduction to some recent developments of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory which are directly connected with the solution of the partial differential equation of wave-motion'. An extensive knowledge and understanding of mathematics is considered a pre-requisite, as is knowledge on the existing theorems surrounding such study.
