Gauss's law for electric fields, Gauss's law for magnetic fields, Faraday's law, and the Ampere-Maxwell law are four of the most influential equations in science. In this guide for students, each equation is the subject of an entire chapter, with detailed, plain-language explanations of the physical meaning of each symbol in the...

One could say that motion capture technology hasn’t evolved
much in the past twenty years. It still relies mostly on cameras,
electromagnetics, or mechanics. Of course, the components
are much better and we are now able to obtain superior
measurements. Data that took weeks to process in the early days
can now be...
