The talk will take place in RIII seminar room on 23rd of november at 19:15.
Notes prepared for this talk will be appended soon.
The structure of the talk will be as follows:
- An overview of Maxwell's equations with Heaviside-Gibbs vectors
- An overview of thermoelectric effects
- The evil quaternion division algebra
- Reformulating Maxwell's equations with quaternions
- A missing piece recovered: the Temporal Field, and its connection to heat
- Emerging thermoelectric effects: A unified theory of electrothermomagnetism
- Heat capacity, and Seebeck effect and Magnetization
After the introduction to quaternions, the talk is based on a paper by Peter Michael Jack: https://arxiv.org/pdf/math-ph/0307038.pdf
The topic is very interesting, and even though this work is not conventional/wildly adopted, there's a lot to learn from it.
