  • So while the Maxwellians (those electrodynamicists who came after Maxwell) were busy exploring the mathematical implications of Maxwell's theory (including Oliver Heaviside who, via vector calculus, reduced the theory to the set of equations seen on T-shirts today), Kelvin busied himself with trying to work out the correct model of the aether demanded by the mathematics.
