Beginning with electron theory and Ohm's law, the work covers topics such as series and parallel circuits, energy and power, batteries, conductors and wire sizes, conductor properties, electromagnetism, DC motor principles, switching controls, and remote systems for lighting control.
Written in a narrative, storytelling style, There Are No Electrons covers basic electron theory (and why it's the "Easter Bunny" of science), voltage, current, resistance, magnetism, and much more.
It is of little use teaching the electron theory without first knowing what a permanent magnet will do when it moves within a coil of wire.
The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the massive-charge-PV nature of the electron phenomenon; and to reestablish the vacuum state as an essential and necessary part of a complete electron theory, that part that has been superseded by the idea of the quantum field.
Among the topics are electron crystallization, melting a magnetically induced Wigner electron solid and anyon properties, structure and forces in simple liquid metals, the quantum theory of pure liquid metals as two-component systems, Thomas Fermi fields for molecules with tetrahedral and octahedral symmetry, electron theory of interaction between point defects in metals, constructing non-local energy density functionals, and foundations of Walsh's rules for molecular shape.
