Dear Brian,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_David_Josephson

Wonderful.

It is very rare, and very difficult indeed, to get
a clear enough exposition

on fundamentals from someone whose career and
reputation are partly based on

classical electromagnetism.

However, first there remains the problem of making
sure of what you mean.

It would be better if you confirmed this, but even
if you don't, I feel your

comment below is clear enough.

The displacement current is in a vertical
direction. This causes magnetic

field in a horizontal plane, some of it lateral, some of
it in the forward

direction.

Concentrate on the forward direction.

We are dealing with a Transverse Electromagnetic
Wave, which by definition

only has magnetic field in a transverse direction.
Thus, we must either

remove displacement current from classical
electromagnetism, or remove the

TEM Wave.

If would be extremely valuable for the future of
science if you, Brian

Josephson, commented on this.

That is easy to answer at least. curl H is proportional to the sum of

the ordinary current and the displacement
current, so the latter must

be associated with a magnetic field if
Maxwell's equations are correct.

Brian J.
This is the smoking
gun. Nobel Prizewinner Professor Brian Josephson (as
usual for him) talks confusingly of curls and divs,
but he ** does** say that the Displacement Current dD/dt at the front face of a TEM step causes magnetic field.
This is the first time we get an admission from anyone that the displacement
current in the front face of a TEM step causes magnetic field. However,
indulging as he does in curls and divs, he is unable
to see its significance. The significance is that by definition a TEM step ( = transverse electromagnetic) cannot have magnetic field in the forward
direction. So the definition of a TEM Wave is incompatible with displacement
current. – Ivor Catt 21 May 2012

For the next reply from Josephson, go to the end of
http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x22j.pdf

In this reply, Josephson makes the extraordinary
statement;

“This is
the problem if you work with simplified physics rather than follow the maths.”

His statement is totally anti-science. In physics in
particular, we deal with the simplest possible physical case. Having mastered
that, we gradually build up complexity. Mathematics comes at a late stage, as a
shorthand expression of the statements about the physical world.

The simplest case, http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/cattq.htm
, has perfect conductors and perfect dielectric. Imperfections can be added
later. Mathematical manipulations can be added later. However, the fundamentals
are in the physics, not in the mathematics. Examples of features missing from
the maths are causality (only the = sign) and superposition – can two physical
situations be superposed?

Dear Professor Josephson,

You were first introduced to these field patterns
at school, when you

remember you did an experiment with a magnet and iron
filings on paper.

Admittedly, the key field pattern was only
published in one text book in the

20th century, and I have transposed it to Figure 5
in my recent paper

http://www.ivorcatt.org/x121.pdf
. To do my work in high speed logic, I

needed a good grasp of such fields. I assumed that
professors and text book

writers were familiar with these field patterns, but there
is no reason why

they should be, because they are not in the literature.
My assumption that

they were well known led to my only publishing part of
this pattern in my

1995 book ,
http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/1_1.htm Figure 2 , and not at all in

my 1979 book.
http://www.ivorcatt.org/digital-hardware-design.htm

Extraordinarily, the key fields, such as shown in
my papers, cannot be found

with a Google search for "curvilinear
squares", which gives 3,000 hits, but

I don't find the key field patterns.

The fact that these field patterns are missing from
the literature is only a

small part of the general malaise, where so many of the
key precepts in

today's (digital) electromagnetic theory are not in the
literature and are

not known by lecturers or taught. Another void is the
omission of the key

formulae, shown in my 1979 book at

http://www.ivorcatt.org/image/page95xtra-large.gif . These are crucial, but

not available to students or lecturers. Also missing
is the Synchroniser

problem http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/97sglit5.htm . The gap
is filled with some

bizarre, inappropriate mathematics. No wonder the student
numbers are

falling fast in Britain and the US.

Sorry -- not good enough to be able to answer immediately, and I have

more important things to use my time on.
