Kurzbeschreibung

28. August 2003
Three quarters of a century elapsed between Ampère's definition of electrodynamics and Einstein's reform of the concepts of space and time. The two events occurred in utterly different worlds: the French Academy of Sciences of the 1820s seems very remote from the Bern patent office of the early 1900s, and the forces between two electric currents quite foreign to the optical synchronization of clocks. Yet Ampère's electrodynamics and Einstein's relativity are firmly connected through an historical chain involving German extensions of Ampère's work, competition with British field conceptions, Dutch synthesis, and fin de si�cle criticism of the aether-matter connection. Darrigol's book retraces this intriguing evolution, with a physicist's attention to conceptual and instrumental developments, and with an historian's awareness of their cultural and material embeddings. This book exploits a wide range of sources, and incorporates the many important insights of other scholars. Thorough accounts are given of crucial episodes such as Faraday's redefinition of charge and current, the genesis of Maxwell's field equations, or Hertz' experiments on fast electric oscillations. Thus emerges a vivid picture of the intellectual and instrumental variety of nineteenth century physics. The most influential investigators worked at the crossroads between different disciplines and traditions: they did not separate theory from experiment, they frequently drew on competing traditions, and their scientific interests extended beyond physics into chemistry, mathematics, physiology, and other areas. By bringing out these important features, this book offers a tightly connected and yet sharply contrasted view of early electrodynamics.

Pressestimmen

By taking the best from the various scholars who have contributed to the field...and by adding his own substantial original research as well as his own synthetic vision, Darrigol has crafted a history of electromagnetic experiment and theory in the 19th century that represents the best the history-of-physics enterprise has to offer. Daniel Siegel, Physics Today The high quality of the exposition, as well as the completeness of the bibliography, will make this book the authoritative reference work for historians of nineteenth century physics for years to come. Ole Knudsen, Centaurus In its sophistication of analysis and detail of presentation, this treatise will surely become a standard resource for historians of science in the coming century. Darrigol offers a richly textured narrative, painstaking in its attention to detail and compelling in conceptual thrust, a work which will repay attention by historians and philosophers of physics. Peter Harman, Studies in history and philosophy of modern physics

Synopsis

Three quarters of a century elapsed between Ampere's definition of electrodynamics and Einstein's reform of the concepts of space and time. The two events occurred in utterly different worlds: the French Academy of Sciences of the 1820s seems very remote from the Bern Patent Office of the early 1900s, and the forces between two electric currents quite foreign to the optical synchronization of clocks. Yet Ampere's electrodynamics and Einstein's relativity are firmly connected through a historical chain involving German extensions of Ampere's work, competition with British field conceptions, Dutch synthesis, and fin de siecle criticism of the aether-matter connection. Olivier Darrigol retraces this intriguing evolution, with a physicist's attention to conceptual and instrumental developments, and with a historian's awareness of their cultural and material embeddings. This book exploits a wide range of sources, and incorporates the many important insights of other scholars. Thorough accounts are given of crucial episodes such as Faraday's redefinition of charge and current, the genesis of Maxwell's field equations, and Hertz's experiments on fast electric oscillations.Thus there emerges a vivid picture of the intellectual and instrumental variety of nineteenth-century physics.

The most influential investigators worked at the crossroads between different disciplines and traditions: they did not separate theory from experiment, they frequently drew on competing traditions, and their scientific interests extended beyond physics into chemistry, mathematics, physiology, and other areas. By bringing out these important features, this book offers a tightly connected and yet sharply contrasted view of early electrodynamics. Olivier Darrigol is a Research Director at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris. His research focuses on the history of quantum theory and of electrodynamics.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A difficult path 26. Oktober 2004
Von W Boudville - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The modern physicist learns about electromagnetism as a done deal; a very polished product centred about Maxwell's equations. But this book shows the long forgotten tribulations and controversies that got us to today's known state.

This text is rather specialised. You need to be thoroughly conversant with electromagnetism. On a par with Jackson's text, "Classical Electrodynamics". But presumably you also have an interest in the history of your field. Darrigol shows that the path was often obscure. Only in full hindsight, after Maxwell and also Einstein made their contributions, did it all come clear.

The scarcity of vector notation in the 19th century accounts can make reading some of the equations a little awkward. You have to perform some slight mental contortions to reinterpret what they're saying, in modern notation.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Olympic champions 3. Januar 2014
Von Mr. P. Martin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If any book shows why technology is a long game it is this, as it exposes how intricate a story basic (as maybe perceived now) theory is. I had been wondering about Maxwell's equations for many years and despite passing the sweet shop where he lived in Aberdeen countless times I did not get it until I stumbled across Daniel Fleisch's A Student's guide to Maxwell Equations last autumn. Thence I got to this book, via some kind tip off the internet.

At University we were told that there would be one course with a historical perspective of the technology, for us it was Prof Wright's (also in Random Walk in Science) view on foosty semiconductor devices leading upto the FET. I got the impression that most undergrads experience of Electrodynamics is like a service maths course with little of the magic that this book provides. I do not hold the lecturer(s) responsible it was probably too soon to reflect on the importance of such. CAD was a few years away.

Finally the book makes for a nice coffee table dipper-innerer. The style is friendly and easy going.
