James Clerk Maxwell (Edinburgh, 13 juny 1831Cambridge, 5 novimber 1879) wie in Skotsk wis- en natuerkundige. Nei him binne de fjouwer Maxwellfergelikingen neamd. Op dizze grûnfergelikingen is de hiele klassike elektromagnetyske teory boud. Mei Albert Einstein en Isaac Newton wurdt hy ta de grutste natuerkundigen rekkene.
