The Theory of Electrons and its Applications to the Phenomena of Light
by H. A. Lorentz
Publisher: B.G. Teubner 1916
Number of pages: 352
Based on a famous course of lectures delivered at Columbia University by Nobel laureate H. A. Lorentz, this volume remains remarkably modern. Its outstanding discussion of general principles and experimental facts keep it vital, and 109 pages of notes offer detailed examinations of the mathematics involved. Unabridged reproduction of the 1915 edition. 9 Figures.

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

This paper reviews the history and the state of the art in optical-clock research and addresses the implementation of optical clocks in a possible future redefinition of the SI second as well as in tests of fundamental physics.
