New Directions in Electromagnetism for Propulsion and Power
Abstract
Except for Quantum Electrodynamics, there has been no real extension of Maxwell's classical electromagnetic (EM) field theory since his electromagnetic EM field equations were developed in 1864. These equations describe the behavior of vector fields of low (U1) group symmetry. Topology, group and gauge theory has been used to extend Maxwell theory into tensor fields of higher SU(2) symmetry form. These tensor fields of higher symmetry form describe the behavior of specially conditioned EM radiation, and theoretical and experimental work on such radiation, together with its application to future propulsion and power systems is described.
