About this Item

With text diagrams. Green publisher's cloth, covers and spine worn and rubbed; interior excellent. With the ownership inscription of G[eorge] N[eville] Watson (1886-1965), the English mathematician who applied complex analysis to the theory of special functions. First edition. Thomson here illustrates the principles of electricity and magnetism while skillfully avoiding using advanced mathematics. He thus provides the reader with "a more vivid idea . . . of the subject than he would be likely to attain if he merely regarded electrical phenomena through a cloud of analytical symbols." Thomson (1856-1940) was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1906 for his discovery of the electron and research on the conduction through gases. Bookseller Inventory # 15441
