About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1902, this book was written with the object of obtaining from Faraday's laws a consistent scheme for the representation of electrical phenomena, and of applying the results to obtain the quantitative relations existing in certain cases of the propagation of electrical effects. An appendices section is included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in physics, electricity and the history of science.
