James Clerk Maxwell: two remarkable dates

This article considers events in which great Scotchman J.C. Maxwell played principal role  and the significance for the evolution of the world culture, which cannot be overestimated. There are two anniversaries in 2014: first, 150 years of the publication of his final work on the theory of the electromagnetic field, and second, 140 years of the organizing Cavendish Laboratory under his leadership, becoming the world centre of science.

About the history of nonlinear integral equations

The work is dedicated to the history of the theory of nonlinear integral equations, covering a period before the start of the 1930s. By analyzing the specifics of the initial period, authors emphasize that the integral equations (in particular, nonlinear equations) is independent object of research with their own problems, requiring its own system of concepts and own language. As a starting point here A.M.
