Introduction.- The History of Views on Charges, Currents and the Electromagnetic Field.- The Neoclassical Field Theory of Charged Matter: A Concise Presentation.- Part I. Classical Electromagnetic Theory and Special Relativity.- Part II. Classical Field Theory.- Part III. The Neoclassical Theory of Charges.- Part IV. The Neoclassical Theory of Charges with Spin.- Part V. Mathematical Aspects of the Theory of Distributed Elementary Charges.- Part VI. Appendices.
In this monograph, the authors present their recently developed theory of electromagnetic interactions. This neoclassical approach extends the classical electromagnetic theory down to atomic scales and allows the explanation of various non-classical phenomena in the same framework.
