Maglev Train systems

  1. Sep 5, 2008 #1
    I was wondering if i could gt anyhelp with some research i was doing?

    I'm looking at the Maglev train systems used in Japan, and some of the developing ideas in the USA and Germany.
    What i was wondering is if anybody would be able to help me compile a list of all the physics concepts involved.

    Thanking you in advance

    I would start with classical mechanics and Maxwell's equations. Also look into magnetic bearings.
