Abstract: André-Marie Ampère (1775-1836) showed a great capacity for mathematics and worked on optics and chemistry. In fact, he can be considered almost an important chemist. Although he made contributions of some importance in mathematics (algebra, mathematical analysis and calculation of probabilities), undoubtedly his greatest contribution was made in the area of electromagnetism, at the age of 45 years. In 1826 he published “The Mathematical Theory of Electrodynamic Phenomena Deduced Solely from Experiment”, a book in which he states that “magnetism is electricity in motion” and “magnetic phenomena depend only on the existence and motion of electrical charges”.
