Call for papers for a book of essays

The Editors of a proposed book on classical electrodynamics to be
published by Rinton Press, Inc. (USA) invite submission of papers.

The name of the compilation will be

"Has the last word been said on classical electrodynamics?
(Classical electrodynamics: new horizons)"

All papers to be submitted by
e-mail to dr. Andrew E. Chubykalo (preferable)
or to Dr. Vladimir Onoochin
or to Dr. Roman Smirnov-Rueda Roman_Smirnov@Mat.UCM.Es
or to Dr. Augusto Espinoza

in LaTeX, LaTeX-
"\documentstyle" format is preferable (i.e. not "\documentclass"!)

Figures for papers should be presented in eps-format (encapsulated postscript format).
Page size should not be more than 22.86 x 15.24 см. Papers should be approximately 15 pages in length and must not exceed 20 pages (except special cases agreed with the Editors).

All received papers will be evaluated by independent referees.

Deadline is 1st of June, 2003

After publication of the book all contributors receive two the single printouts of their contributions.


In the last decade, it is observed an emergence of revived interests towards
classical electrodynamics. While the conventional Maxwell's theory remains
one of the few corner-stones of modern physics and cradle of Einstein's
relativity, an throughout study on it may lead us to a better and deeper
understanding on electromagnetism which has a nearly two century history and
may bring us nice surprises. In spite of all its visible successes, there
are still reasons to believe that either Maxwell's equations or the
conceptual background of electromagnetism needs to be modified.

There are also attempts in these directions. R. Feynman was one of these who
had some doubts on the completeness of classical electrodynamics, and he
once commented: "… this tremendous edifice (classical electrodynamics),
which is such a beautiful success in explaining so many phenomena,
ultimately falls on its face. When you follow any of our physics too far,
you find that it always gets into some kind of trouble. …the failure of the
classical electromagnetic theory. Classical mechanics is a mathematically
consistent theory; it just doesn't agree with experience. It is interesting,
though, that the classical theory of electromagnetism is unsatisfactory
theory all by itself. There are difficulties associated with the ideas of
Maxwell's theory which are not solved by and not directly associated with
quantum mechanics…".

Many unresolved and forbidden problems of classical electrodynamics seem to
be more serious in view of frustrated intentions to make fully compatible
Einstein's relativity (based mainly on Maxwell's equations) with quantum
mechanics. According to Bohm, this significant incommensurability has to
lead to discover an entirely new order to physics at a fundamental level
with all its implications for classical theory. It will be helpful if there
is a forum where arguments of both for and against modification of standard
Maxwell's approach are presented, and thus, an objective discussion of all
possible alternative views logically sound and based on a rigorous
mathematical ground is conducted.

This review volume as entitled above will provide such a forum. The editors
would call scientists who are actively working in electromagnetic theory to
send in your review or research papers on classical electrodynamics,
especially these on unsolved and annoying problems.

The Editors:

Dr. Andrew E. Chubykalo (Mexico)
Dr. Augusto Espinoza (Mexico)
Dr. Vladimir Onoochin (Russia)
Dr. Roman Smirnov-Rueda (Spain)
