James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879)

James Clerk Maxwell, the great physicist and mathematician,was born in Edinburgh,Scotland, on November 13, 1831
is most notable achievement was to formulate the classical theory of electromagnetic radiation, bringing together for the first time electricity, magnetism, and light as manifestations of the same phenomenon. Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism have been called the "second great unification in physics" after the first one realised by Isaac Newton.

After school he entered the University of that city. Then he attended the University of Cambridge and graduated from it in 1854. When at the University Maxwell took great interest in mathematics and optics.
For two years after the University he lectured, made experiments in optics at Trinity College and studied much himself.
In 1856 he became professor of natural philosophy and in 1860 professor of physics and astronomy at Kings College, London. In London he lived for five years. Here he saw Faraday for the first time.
In 1871 Maxwell became professor of experimental physics at Cambridge. At that time students could not even have such subjects as electricity or magnetism as there was no laboratory for the study of these subjects. Maxwell organized such a laboratory which made Cambridge world-known.
This was a very fruitful period of Maxwells life. He studied the problems of electromagnetism, molecular physics, optics, mechanics and others.
Maxwell wrote his first scientific work when he was fifteen. Since that time he wrote a great number of works which were the results of his experiments and calculations.
His most outstanding investigations, however, are in the field of the kinetic theory of gases and electricity. Maxwell is the founder of the electromagnetic field (side by side with Faraday) and the electromagnetic theory.

As a great lover of Scottish poetry, Maxwell memorised poems and wrote his own.The best known is Rigid Body Sings, closely based on Comin' Through the Rye by Robert Burns, which he apparently used to sing while accompanying himself on a guitar.
A collection of his poems was published by his friend Lewis Campbell in 1882 Descriptions of Maxwell remark upon his remarkable intellectual qualities being matched by social awkwardness.
Maxwell was an evangelical Presbyterian and in his later years became an Elder of the Church of Scotland. Maxwell's religious beliefs and related activities have been the focus of a number of papers.Attending both Church of Scotland (his father's denomination) and Episcopalian(his mother's denomination) services as a child, Maxwell later underwent an evangelical conversion in April 1853. One facet of this conversion may have aligned him with an antipositivist position.

Maxwell had studied and commented on electricity and magnetism as early as 1855 when his paper On Faraday's lines of force was read to the Cambridge Philosophical Society. The paper presented a simplified model of Faraday's work and how the two phenomena were related. He reduced all of the current knowledge into a linked set of differential equations with 20 equations in 20 variables. This work was later published as On physical lines of force in March 1861
Around 1862, while lecturing at King's College, Maxwell calculated that the speed of propagation of an electromagnetic field is approximately that of the speed of light. He considered this to be more than just a coincidence, commenting, "We can scarcely avoid the conclusion that light consists in the transverse undulations of the same medium which is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena

Control theory

Maxwell published a paper On governors in the Proceedings of Royal Society, vol. 16 (1867–1868). This paper is considered a central paper of the early days of control theory Here "governors" refers to the governor or the centrifugal governor used to regulate steam engines.

Later years

Maxwell died in Cambridge of abdominal cancer on 5 November 1879 at the age of 48. His mother had died at the same age of the same type of cancer. 
As death approached Maxwell told a Cambridge colleague
I have been thinking how very gently I have always been dealt with. I have never had a violent shove all my life. The only desire which I can have is like David to serve my own generation by the will of God, and then fall asleep.
Maxwell is buried at Parton Kirk, near Castle Douglas in Galloway close to where he grew up. The extended biography The Life of James Clerk Maxwell, by his former schoolfellow and lifelong friend Professor Lewis Campbell, was published in 1882 His collected works were issued in two volumes by the Cambridge University Press in 1890
