The issue presents a series of reviews and research articles describing current status of several research areas which have at their origins the equations proposed by James Clerk Maxwell 150 years ago. The unification of electric and magnetic fields in electromagnetic theory expressed in Maxwell's equations has enabled virtually all modern electrical, electronic and photonic technologies and led to the most fundamental advances in theoretical physics unification of all interactions in physics. Recently, analogies of electromagnetic phenomena have emerged in condensed-matter problems, while new optical phenomena continue to advance both classical and quantum optics. The issue provides an opportunity for established as well as young researchers working in the field of unified theories, condensed matter and modern electromagnetism to learn about cross-fertilisation of these fields.
