Hoyer, Gauss-Gesellschaft Mitteilungen, Vol. 49, pp. 121-123 (2012).

This book presents the planetary model of the atom developed by Wilhelm Weber (1804-1891) in the second half of the XIXth century, before Bohr's model. It is based on Weber's electrodynamic force of 1846, which depends on the distance between the interacting charges, their relative velocity and their relative acceleration. Weber showed that two interacting charges of the same sign could behave as if they had negative inertial masses when they were accelerated relative to one another, provided they were moving at very close distances smaller than a critical distance r_c. When this condition is fulfilled, these two charges of the same sign will attract one another, instead of repelling each other as usually observed. Weber then predicted that atoms might be composed of negative charges describing elliptical orbits around the positive nucleus, being attracted by the nucleus, while the positive particles composing the nucleus would also attract one another due to their negative inertial masses. Three main remarkable aspects of his model should be emphasized:
