Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism by James Clerk Maxwell

This seminal scientific work revolutionized the understanding of electricity and magnetism, providing a comprehensive mathematical framework for the interrelationship between these two forces. The book lays out the foundation of electromagnetic theory, introducing key concepts such as electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic waves and the speed of light. It also introduces the four fundamental equations, now named after the author, that describe how electric charges and currents create electric and magnetic fields.
