The mathematical theory of probability made its first great step forward when a correspondence between Pascal and Pierre de Fermat revealed that both had come to similar conclusions independently. The article will appear in the magazine's . The field, which applies mathematical principles similar to those in Einstein's theory of general relativity, will be described in an article to be published Friday (Oct. This book gives a detailed overview of the theory of electromagnetic wave scattering on single, homogeneous, but nonspherical particles. Introduces classical concepts of geometrical and physical optics with rigorous connections to fundamental theories of light--Fermat's principle, Huygen's principle, and Maxwell's equations. He developed a wave theory of light opposed to the corpuscular theory of Newton and formulated Huygens's principle, which holds that, concerning light waves, every point on a wave front is itself a source of new waves. His importance to music theory lies in the Novus cyclus harmonicus (1661) in which he demonstrated the mathematical basis of the old theory of division of the octave into 31 equal parts. Second son of Constantijn Huygens. Pascal's scientific contributions include the principle of hydrostatics, now known as Pascal's law, which is the basis of the hydraulic press used in hydraulic brakes and other applications. Solutions were found by John Wallis, Christopher Wren, Christian Huygens, and others. This paper presents a brief history of electromagnetic theory from ancient times up to the work of Maxwell and the advent of Einstein's.
