In this thesis, theories of classical electrodynamics are used to calculate magnetic fields from, as well as forces acting on, a device called the Levitron™. These fields and forces were measured and the calculations were found to be in good agreement with the measurements. Other papers on the subject are discussed which explain the physics of how the Levitron™ works.
