Minagawa wrote that their intent was to complete aether theory and that, they united Maxwell's theory
with MacCullagh and Kelvin's work and integrated them into their own theories.

so hard to understand?" James Clerk Maxwell Commemorative Booklet, James Clerk Maxwell Foundation, Edinburgh, 1999.
Coverage progresses from the sources of the electromagnetic field through Maxwell's theory
, the static electromagnetic field, temporal and spatial frequency domain representation, field decompositions and EM potentials, and integral solutions of Maxwell's equations.
This correspondence became therefore the cornerstone of Maxwell's theory
, which sees in light nothing else than electromagnetic oscillations, a theory that has found strong support at Leiden University.
It took about twenty years before Maxwell's theory
was widely accepted.
Support for each of these factors (call them 'external' if you like) is necessary to show that Maxwell's theory
is empirically adequate.
In the early 1920s, Theodr Kaluza stunned Einstein with his own unification paper, combining Einstein's theory of gravity with Maxwell's theory
of light by adding one more dimension.
It was the foundation of Faraday's experiments and Maxwell's theory
Fifth, from the viewpoint of reductionism, Maxwell's theory
of electromagnetic fields can only be regarded as a phenomenological theory.
