In another paper published in that same year, Albert Einstein undermined the very foundations of classical electromagnetism.
The term electrodynamics is sometimes used to refer to the combination of electromagnetism with mechanics, and deals with the effects of the electromagnetic field on the dynamic behavior of electrically charged particles.
Planck's and Einstein's theories were progenitors of quantum mechanics, which, when formulated in 1925, necessitated the invention of a quantum theory of electromagnetism.
Шrsted's work influenced Ampиre to produce a theory of electromagnetism that set the subject on a mathematical foundation.
One of the peculiarities of classical electromagnetism is that it is difficult to reconcile with classical mechanics, but it is compatible with special relativity.
The theoretical implications of electromagnetism led to development of the theory of special relativity by Albert Einstein in 1905.
