Taking in consideration that the study of fractional calculus opens the mind to entirely new branches of thought, we applied such concept in a specific electromagnetic problem in order to demonstrate that the fractional derivatives operator can be an interesting and useful tools in electromagnetic theory.
In relation to this, consider the fact that contemporary electromagnetic theory was truncated from Maxwell's original formulation, when his 20 original equations with 20 unknowns were reduced to only four equations by Heaviside to simplify the theory into a form usable by electrical engineers.
If you want to use these materials to transmit energy, you have to break the symmetry as well as have accelerating electrons--this is the missing piece of the puzzle of electromagnetic theory," says Amaratunga.
This year also coincides with the anniversaries of a series of important milestones in the history of the science of light, including the works on optics by Ibn Al-Haytham in 1015, the notion of light as a wave proposed by Fresnel in 1815, and the electromagnetic theory of light propagation proposed by Maxwell in 1865.
