10 The Politics of Electromagnetism.
This has been thoroughly researched. I published in peer reviewed journals in 1966, 1967 (20pp), 1983, 1987. However, I then went too far ahead, leading to 100% rejection of publication for 30 years. As an example, during a three month period there were more than 20 rejections. Rejections are listed here . I put massive effort into this for decades. It showed that it was content, and not style, which led to 100% rejection. Any major advance, for instance the statement; ďA capacitor is a transmission lineĒ had to be rejected, and was 100% rejected throughout the world. My style could not be at fault, since in 1966, 1967, 1983, 1987, I published peer reviewed articles.
Oliver Heaviside Is it true that he refused to come up to London to receive the first Faraday Medal because the IEE would not specify which part of his work was being rewarded. The secretary of the IEE travelled down to Torquay and rang the doorbell? Oliver (who lived upstairs) opened the window and said he didnít want it, but the visitor could put it through the letter box if he wanted to. Letter from Heaviside's nephew to Searle following Heavisideís death . Contradicting this, Josephs says the IEE President visited Heaviside. However, there was trouble when the Royal Society refused to tell OH in detail which part of his work led them to confer a medal on him. I have to look into this further. IC.
defending. As an example, we have Pepper defying Gaussís Law, which is fundamental to the theory he thinks he is defending.
