In this talk — aimed at modernizing and rejuvenating electromagnetic theory — I shall be concerned (a) with new physical interpretations of some century-old mathematics (first published by Heinrich Hertz, but independently rediscovered by several modern investigators), (b) with the surprising implications for photon behavior, and (c) with needed experimental testing.
