The old world was the new world to them," says the author. McCullough discusses his latest work, "The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris." Speaker Biography: Librarian of Congress James H. Billington has called David McCullough the "citi

This video was made to test out a relativistic version of Direct Coulomb Summation and is intended to be displaying fields of different moving charge configurations. Coulomb’s Law is well defined and also that inverse square fields propagate at the speed of light is well known. Hence why not put both into the same equation. In general, the video uses Coulomb's law to compute an observational cube of data. The dataset is then sent to a ray tracer which produces the images in the video
