The Toys and Humor of James
Professor Dan Silver, Department of Mathematics & Statistics, USA.
Abstract: James Clerk Maxwell is remembered by generations of physics students for his profound insights about electricity and magnetism, summarized in a series of daunting equations. Maxwell also left behind a collection of serious toys and a string of commendably funny poems. We take a look at Maxwell's toys and humor, finding clues about his modes of thought.
