About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Electromagnetic theory. by HEAVISIDE, Oliver (1850-1925)..

Description:

Two volumes. 8vo. xxi, 466; xvi, 542 pp. Illus. with figures and diagrams, appendices. Original blind doubled and gilt-stamped plum cloth, all edges speckled; faded spine, chipped, inner hinges repaired with Japanese Kozo paper. Ex-library copy [Dominion Astronomical Observatory, Ottawa, Canada] as evidenced by stamps and glue remains on endpapers. Internally a clean set. Very good. Rare. FIRST EDITION, American issue. Heavsideâs âElectrical papersâ, quite controversial at first, were initially published in The Electrician. These volumes contain some papers originally printed 1891-93, but there are also many that appear here for the first time (based on the authorâs method of dating on the contents page). âEven after the papers began appearing in The Electrician, understanding dawned slowly, for Heavisideâs genius led him to make free and original use of mathematical tools not appreciated by even the most sophisticated contemporaryâ"they were sometimes decades ahead of their rigorous elaboration and application to practical problems.â â" DSB. âHis Electrical Papers were published in 2 vols. at London in 1892. His papers in Electrician were collected in 3 vols. entitled âElectromagnetic Theoryâ (London, 1893-1912; repr. 1922-1925).â This is the American issue of the Electromagnetic Theory. A new edition of Electromagnetic Theory (New York, 1950) contains a critical and historical introduction by Ernst Weber. The third volume was issued in 1912. Yavetz reported that a fourth volume was also found in manuscript, but never published. All original printings are rare on the market. In the pre-Einstein world of physics, Heaviside seemed represent electromagnetic theory âas the art of talking about things without knowing what they really are.â (Yavetz, p. 134). He viewed electromagnetism as a field that would be eventually reduced to âmatter and motion.â He said, âWe are set down in space, to march with time, and have matter in motion everywhere around us.â Oliver Heaviside (1850 â" 1925), F.R.S., born in London, left school at 16, lacking a university education and started his career as a telegraph operator. He suffered from scarlet fever until he became partially deaf and thus could not continue in the field. He began to teach himself electrical engineering and eventually became a renowned mathematician and one of the worldâs premiere authorities on electromagnetic theory. âWorking alone, Heaviside developed much of the mathematics behind the theory of telegraphy and electric circuits, formulating the now familiar concepts of impedance, self-inductance and conductance and using complex numbers in the analysis of alternating current networks many years before others did soâ [Cambridge University Press]. âHe adapted complex numbers to the study of electrical circuits, invented mathematical techniques to the solution of differential equations (later found to be equivalent to Laplace transforms), reformulated Maxwellâs field equations in terms of electric and magnetic forces and energy flux, and independently co-formulated vector analysis. Although at odds with the scientific establishment for most of his life, Heaviside changed the face of mathematics and science for years to comeâ â" [Wikipedia]. He was awarded the first Faraday Medal, a bronze medal established in 1922 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the first Ordinary Meeting of the Society of Telegraph Engineers (now the Institution of Engineering and Technology).
