Speakers: Professor Alan Davies

Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell were the greatest British scientists of the early and late nineteenth century respectively. Faraday’s innovative idea of the electromagnetic field of force was crucial for Maxwell to produce his eponymous equations and predict light as a wave. We shall explore the work of Faraday and Maxwell and its profound influence on the way we live. We shall also explain where the work of the lesser-known George Green fits in.
