Description

This text treats what is conventionally called electromagnetism or Maxwell's theory within the context of Gauge theory or Yang-Mills theory. A major theme of the book is that fields are not stand-alone entities but are defined by their boundary conditions. It has practical relevance to efficient antenna design, understanding forces and stresses in high energy pulses, ring laser gyros, high-speed computer logic elements, efficient transfer of power, parametric conversion and many other devices and systems. Conventional electromagnetism is shown to be an underdeveloped, rather than a completely developed, field of endeavour, with major challenges in development still to be met.

Review:

... it is important to state that Barrett and Grimes have provided a excellent compendium of papers to support the paradigm shift that is occuring and must occur in physical science if we are to accelerate our understanding of the physical world. -- Fusion Information Center, Inc., 1996

Description

Topological Foundations of Electromagnetism seeks a fundamental understanding of the dynamics of electromagnetism; and marshals the evidence that in certain precisely defined topological conditions, electromagnetic theory (Maxwell's theory) must be extended or generalized in order to provide an explanation and understanding of, until now, unusual electromagnetic phenomena. Key to this generalization is an understanding of the circumstances under which the so-called A potential fields have physical effects. Basic to the approach taken is that the topological composition of electromagnetic fields is the fundamental conditioner of the dynamics of these fields. The treatment of electromagnetism from, first, a topological perspective, continuing through group theory and gauge theory, to a differential calculus description is a major thread of the book. Suggestions for potential new technologies based on this new understanding and approach to conditional electromagnetism are also given.

Contents:

  • Electromagnetic Phenomena Not Explained by Maxwell's Equations
  • The Sagnac Effect: A Consequence of Conservation of Action Due to Gauge Field Global Conformal Invariance in a Multiply Joined Topology of Coherent Fields
  • Topological Approaches to Electromagnetism

Electric Spacecraft Propulsion by Specially-Conditioned EM Fields

(1998)

1453 Beulah Road, Vienna, VA 22182, United States; barrett506@aol.com, (703) 759-4518
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 24, pp. 17-22
Keywords: A-vector, electrogravitics, propulsion, polarization-modulated radiation, specially-conditioned EM fields

Lookup: propulsion (15), electrogravitics (3), fields (36), radiation (40), em (8), polarization (6), vector (8)

Abstract:

Although the space-time metric associated with gravitation can be distorted somewhat by electromagnetic influences (such as magnetic fields of stupendous strength) there is no strong interaction or coupling between ordinary electromagnetic fields and those of gravitation because they are of a different essence and form. But if ordinary EM fields could be endowed with an essence and form similar to that which underlies gravitational fields, a much stronger coupling or interaction might be accomplished for propulsive use. This paper, which placed second in the Electric Spacecraft Competition, describes several ways of creating specially-conditioned EM radiation and how the fields associated with such radiation might interact with those associated with gravity. It also describes several experiments that could reveal such an interaction.

Abstract:

Second place in the Electric Spacecraft Competition was awarded to H. David Froning, Jr. and Terence W. Barrett for their paper, ?Electric Spacecraft Propulsion by Specially-Conditioned EM Fields.? (See ESJ 24:17-22.) This is an update. Preliminary tests of some of the concepts presented in the original paper have been completed in a collaborative effort with George Hathaway at Hathaway Associates, Toronto. The latest findings are presented with an outline for the direction of future experimentation.
