Clerk Maxwell first published what we today call Maxwell's equations in the Transactions of the Royal Society in January 1865. This session celebrates the 150th anniversary of that publication. Inspired by the work of rsted, Faraday, Ampre, and many others, Maxwell?s equations form the basis for our entire field. Maxwell's work, in turn, inspired and enabled the development of quantum theory, relativity, and, indeed, all of modern physics. Newton said, If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. Maxwell is our giant.
