An elementary treatise on electricity by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

40 editions published between 1881 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879), first Cavendish Professor of Physics at Cambridge, 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 been regarded as laying the foundations of all modern physics. This work of 1881 was edited from Maxwell's notes by a colleague, William Garnett, and had formed the basis of his lectures. Several of the articles included in the present work were also included in his two-volume Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism (1873), also reissued in this series. The preface indicates that the two works were aimed at somewhat different audiences, the larger work assuming a greater knowledge of higher mathematics. Maxwell had also modified some of his methodology, and hoped to encourage the reader to develop an understanding of concepts relating to electricity

James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) was a Scottish physicist well-known for his extensive work with electromagnetism, colour analysis, and kinetic theory. Considered by many to be a giant in his field with significant influence on the physicists who would follow, Maxwell spent time as a professor at Aberdeen University, King's College, London, and Cambridge. This 1882 Life by his friend Lewis Campbell and natural philosopher William Garnett represents an important - and lengthy - investigation into Maxwell's life and thought. Part I is concerned

William Garnett, aerial photographs by William Garnett( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To soar above the earth on wings is a wish as old as eternity. Granted that wish, what might one see? Aloft in his tiny Cessna 170, William Garnett sees shadow against light and sensuous beauty. For nearly fifty years Garnett has taken pictures of what he sees, and now a selection of his renowned black-and-white aerial photographs is brought together in one volume for the first time. Garnett's work reveals patterns that echo nature's intimate designs--his camera captures snow geese, plowed fields, cattle trails, sand dunes, cracked ice, salt flats and his vision transforms these scenes into art. His interest in conservation is reflected in these works, which express his desire that the earth's beauty be preserved. More than an accomplished pilot and photographer, William Garnett is also a poet who composes while flying his silver bird. Banking and climbing, he searches for the perfect moment between camera and subject that says what he wants to say. Those moments are grandly preserved in this extraordinary volume." -- Publisher's information
