james clerk maxwell (18311879), one of the finest scientific mindsin history, was mocked at school for his perceived stupidity.
Biographical Information Occupation, Sphere of Activity James Clerk Maxwell ( ), one of the finest scientific minds in history, was mocked at school for his perceived stupidity. Though he had shown scientfic curiosity from a very young age, Maxwell's intelligence was not immediately obvious to his more literary-minded peers at the Edinburgh Academy, partly because of his interest in science, which they did not understand, and partly because of his reluctance to socialise with them. Whatever the reasons, he only slowly emerged from this isolation when his school marks began to show his exceptional talents. He went on to study at the universities in Edinburgh and Cambridge. ) 'radiometer', which had been taken as evidence that light could exert pressure, which would have confirmed the particle theory of radiation. Maxwell proved that the motion could be attributed to the effects of the rarified gas that remained within the near-vacuum that the radiometer resided in. Finally, Maxwell conducted a series of experiments on colour, in which he found out that any colour could be created by adding or subtracting any other three colours, and made a number of experiments to determine to what extent experience of colour is subjective. Maxwell held the chair of natural philosophy at Marischal College, Aberdeen from

James Clerk Maxwell - Creationist Scientist
... The Life of James Clerk Maxwell By Mary Bellis James Clerk Maxwell, a Scottish physicist and mathematician, is generally regarded as one of the world's greatest physicists. Maxwell's researches combined the fields of electricity and magnetism and introduced the concept of the electro-magnetic field . Following James Clerk Maxwell's research, we now call a space modified by the presence of magnetic field lines a "magnetic field": if a bar magnet is placed there, it will experience magnetic forces, but the field exists even when no magnet is present. Similarly, an "electric field" is the space in which electric forces may be sensedfor instance between metal objects charged (+) and (-) by a battery, as in the drawing accompanying the discussion of the electron. In 1864, James Clerk Maxwell demonstrated a subtle connection between the two types of force, unexpectedly involving the velocity of light.

James Clerk Maxwell
Domovská stránka Fyzici Skotský fyzik James Clerk Maxwell se narodil roku 1831 v Edinburgu. Maxwell byl jedním z nejvýznamnìjších teoretických fyzikù, který svými pracemi pøispìl k rozvoji nìkolika fyzikálních disciplín. Studoval na místní univerzitì a pozdìji v Cambridgi (pozdìji tam pracoval jako asistent). Jeho životním dílem je Dynamická teorie elektromagnetického pole . Z Maxwellových prací vycházel i A.Einstein a mnoho dalších. Ve spisu z let 1855-56 podává Maxwell matematické vyjádøení pojmu Faradyových siloèar. Maxwell popsal prùbìh magnetických siloèar v blízkosti elektrického proudu a dospìl tak k vektorové diferenciální rovnici, podle níž každá jednotlivá proudová linie vytváøí vírové magnetické pole. Roku 1860 Maxwell na základì mìøení vnitøního tøení zjistil, že molekuly nemají stejnou rychlost - proto je difúze pomalá. Odvodil zákon rozdìlení rychlostí, pojmenovaný po nìm. V roce 1865 pøerušil Maxwell práci na univerzitì a odstìhoval se na venkov, kde po dobu dalších pìti let soukromì vìdecky pracoval. Roku 1865 Maxwell matematicky odvodil, že existují elektromagnetické vlny, které se šíøí rychlostí svìtla.

Home J.C. Maxwell Biography > J.C. Maxwell Biography
The 1997 Digital Preservation of "The Life of James Clerk Maxwell" We know James Clerk Maxwell primarily for Maxwell’s equations. While I personally have been working only several decades with Maxwell’s equations, there are many researchers who have been working with his equations for their entire professional careers. But what do we know about Maxwell the person? Where are all the biographies of this person described by Richard Feynman as the greatest physicist of the 19th century, the one person who, after the Civil War of the same century is long forgotten, will still be shining brightly? There are very few biographies of Maxwell. The most comprehensive biography was written by a life-long friend, Lewis Campbell with help from William Garnett. It is considered a primary historical reference on Maxwell. Published in 1882, shortly after Maxwell’s death, it is today found only in the rare book rooms of large libraries. However, now the entire text of the book with figures included is available here. In December of 1996, I gained access to a copy. As I started reading it, I was moved to engage in a major project: to digitize the book and to convert the images into word processor files (by means of OCR, Optical Character Recognition, software) so that others might enjoy the book as well.

    This page describes the construction of my observatory. Select an item from the list below.

    Introduction (August 10, 2000): These are some of the first pictures taken of the construction of my observatory. Construction began July 25, 2000. The building will consist of three rooms: Observatory/telescope room, warm-up/work room, workshop. The building is 32 feet by 11 feet, and 8 feet in height, and its long axis is lined up with north and south to within a degree or so of north. The dome was delivered last November from Ash Mfg. and is about 10.5 feet in diameter. Completion is expected around the middle of September. Dan De Martini Construction is putting it together. Dan and his assistant, Nathan (Nate the Great), are doing all the work, but I'll be joining them to put the dome in place. I've tentatively given the observatory the name James Clerk Maxwell in honor of the great 19th century scientist for whom Maxwell equations are named, which united the concepts of electromagnetism, and showed that light is an electromagnetic wave. The observatory is located in Nevada City, CA about 60 miles NE of Sacramento at an elevation of 2700 feet in the Sierra (mountain) foothills.

James Clerk Maxwell Telescope
The James Clerk Maxwell Telescope A Microwave Telescope Naturally emitted microwaves are the targets of this unusual telescope. Located near the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii, the JCMT is helping to open a new window on the universe. Named after the pioneering Scottish physicist who gave us a fundamental understanding of electricity and magnetism, the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope is used to investigate a part of the electromagnetic spectrum that is only now beginning to be explored. The telescope is capable of exploring radio waves with a range of about 0.3 to 2 mm. Science and the JCMT What sort of organic molecules exist beyond our solar system? How are stars made in the murky depths of interstellar clouds? Astronomers have used the telescope to gather unique information about many types of objects, including the Sun, comets, planets, molecular clouds, galaxies, quasars and the cosmic background radiation. Analysis might include determining what the microwave emitting gases are made of, how they are moving, what sort of magnetic field is present or how much radiation is given off, helping to answer questions that would be otherwise impossible to answer. An International Facility JCMT was built jointly by the United Kingdom and the Netherlands and is funded by the UK, Canada and the Netherlands. It is operated from the Joint Astronomy Center in Hilo, Hawaii and used by astronomers from the funding countries and world-wide, who visit the observatory for the few days that they are scheduled to use the telescope each year.

The Submillimetre Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA) is now operational at the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT). This paper describes the SCUBA User Reduction Facility (SURF) data reduction software that has been developed for use with SCUBA.
1. Introduction
The Submillimetre Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA) is the recently commissioned instrument on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) on Mauna Kea. SCUBA is a bolometer array which means that for the first time JCMT has imaging capabilities in the submillimetre. In order to maximize the number of bolometers in the array, they were packed on a hexagonal (rather than rectangular) grid. This means that the software has to reconstruct the data into an image. Moreover, because the bolometers are larger than half the beam width, the image cannot be fully sampled in a single exposure. In order to fully sample the image, the secondary mirror is ``jiggled'' to several adjacent positions and the software has to keep track of what sky position is associated with each data measurement. Finally, because of how SCUBA is mounted (on the Nasmyth platform), the sky rotates as the telescope tracks; this is also something the software must correct for.

Papers of James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879)
James Clerk Maxwell was born in Edinburgh in 1831 and was educated at the University of Edinburgh, 1847-1850, Peterhouse, Cambridge, during 1850, and at Trinity College, Cambridge, 1850-1854, before being elected a Fellow of Trinity in 1855. He held the chair of Natural Philosophy at Marischal College, later to form part of the new University of Aberdeen, 1856-1860, and was Professor of Natural Philosophy at King's College London from 1860 until his resignation in 1865. Maxwell entered into a period of private studies between 1865-1871, before being elected Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge in 1871, a position that he occupied at his death in 1879. He is best known for work on the kinetics of gases, but especially on the nature of electricity and magnetism that he initiated in earnest shortly before his arrival at King's College London, and that were developed further during his tenure at King's and subsequently at Cambridge.
The notebooks were presented to King's College London by the executors of Sir George Greenhill in 1927.
