I will present a refutation of 6 and 7 inconsistency claim. Using the proof by Kiessling (1999), I will show that Classical Electrodynamics (CED) can be applied consistently and can preserve energy conservation to the problem of charged, accelerated particles. This refutes the core of Frisch's inconsistency claim.

This informative text also provides an introduction based on fundamental vacuum processes to the ideas of relativistic quantum electrodynamics and quantum field theory, including renormalization and Feynman diagrams. Experimental as well as theoreticalaspects of the quantum vacuum are described, and in most cases details of mathematical derivations are included. Chapter 1 of The Quantum Vacuum - published in advance in The American Journal of Physics (1991)-was later selected by readers as one of the Most Memorable papers ever published in the 60-year history of the journal.

Classical Electrodynamics (book). Classical Electrodynamics is a textbook about that subject written by theoretical particle and nuclear physicist John David Jackson. The book originated as lecture notes that Jackson prepared for teaching graduate-level electromagnetism first at McGill University and then at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Shuxia Wang, Pieter B. Visscher. Xuebing Feng, Pieter B. In this paper we show that the transition state theory (TST) used in chemical rate theory works surprisingly well for magnetic systems. High speed switching in magnetic materials is usually studied with the Landau–Lifshitz (LL) equation, which describes damping through a phenomenological coefficient.

This text deals with the numerical methods usually used in practice to calculate electromagnetic fields, and to integrate these methods with computer simulation. The basic mathematical methods which physicists use to describe fields (eg density, displacement, and electrical) are developed, each demonstrated with examples of applications to mechanical problems. Maxwell's equations governing electric and magnetic fields are described and the reader is shown how these lead to physical phenomena such as electromagnetic waves, charged particle motion, electromagnetic induction, and other processes. Maxwell's equations are introduced in a discrete form - on a lattice - and are discussed in terms of the original definition of the polarization field rather than the more abstract "dipole moment" approach. Other topics covered include xerography, EMP, the magnetron oscillator, and boundary-value problems in the presence of superconductors, none of which are included in other texts at this level.

I must admit that my introduction to this book was a complete (but happy) accident. I grabbed it off the
shelf in a university library by mistake. To my surprise, this book contains a very gentle, intuitive, and unique treatment of classical E&M. As a non-physicist and EE-type, I really began to appreciate the pains the
author went through to teach this material in an "outside the box" manner.

What is so unique about this book?

It develops the theory of electromagnetism from a discrete approach. Essentially, space and the
fields (and the Div, Grad, Curl operators) therein are developed from a lattice approach (graphs, edges, nodes). I have never seen the
material treated this way in a beginning book and I think that it works well for the novice. The traditional continuous field equations are
developed from a limiting argument of the discrete.

This book is also very user friendly and holds your hand when hand holding is appropriate.

In summary, great text especially if you are interested in a simple and intuitive intro to this
notoriously hard subject.

This book is a great candidate for a dover reprint.

There are merits to Visscher's innovative approach in introducing electrodynamics in discrete space and time. This may help some students better understand the basic spatiotemporal interactions between charges, current, and fields. Visscher also has a wonderful sense of humor. BUT ... if your objective is to prepare for the electrodynamics courses in graduate school, THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU.
