The book deals with the resurgence of nineteenth century electromagnetism in physics and electrical engineering. It describes a series of important experiments, and new technologies based on these experiments, which cannot be explained by and analyzed with the modern relativistic electrodynamics of the twentieth century. The Newtonian electrodynamics of Coulomb, Ampere, Neumann, and Kirchhoff, which was current from 1750 to 1900, is fully reviewed and greatly extended to deal with contemporary research on exploding wires, railguns and other electromagnetic accelerators, jet propulsion in liquid metals, arc plasma explosions, capillary fusion, and lightning phenomena. Much of the book is based on the atomic definition of the Amperian current element. Finite element techniques for solving many electrodynamic problems are described.
Fusion Facts, 1996
Many important and new observations that should be of equal interest to both the professional and the intelligent lay reader ... excellent book ... The application of some of these concepts developed by the authors can save many millions of dollars a year in electrical power costs in just the aluminum industry. There are and will be many other valuable commercial applications of the study of Newtonian Electrodynamics ... If you are seriously interested in cold fusion and new energy developments, or if you are an electrical engineer, a scientist, or a teacher of science, this book is a must-read for you. If you are an intelligent lay person or professional, you will find this book full of interesting insights into the history and practice of electrodynamics.
Thomas E Phipps, Jr., Galilean Electrodynamics, 1997
"This book represents a remarkably dispassionate presentation of the case for the application of neo-Newtonian methods in the analysis of electrodynamic phenomena ... Highly recommended to the open-minded, and to any who agree with Maxwell about the "prudential" role of pluralism in ensuring the health of science and, indeed, in ensuring its life."
