THE activity of giving a few account of Maxwell's paintings —of describing the percentage that he has taken within the boost of actual technology throughout the latter halt of this 19th century—has proved no mild labour. the issues which he attacked are of such value and complexity, that the try to clarify them and their significance, satisfactorily, with no the help of symbols, is sort of foredoomed to failure. despite the fact that, the try out has been made, within the trust that there are numerous who, even though they can not keep on with the mathematical research of Maxwell's paintings, have enough common wisdom of actual rules and rules to make an account of Maxwell and of the improvement of the truths that he found, matters of clever interest.

Maxwell's existence used to be written in 1882 by way of of these who have been such a lot in detail hooked up with him, Professor Lewis Campbell and Dr. Garnett. a number of the biographical info of the sooner a part of this publication are taken from their paintings My thank you are as a result of them and to their publishers, Messrs. Macmillan, for permission to take advantage of any of the letters which seem of their biography. I belief that my short account could be enough to urge many to learn Professor Campbell's " lifestyles and Letters," with a view of studying extra of the interior concepts of 1 who has left so robust an imprint on all he undertook, and used to be so deeply enjoyed through all who knew him.
