The Mechanical Roots of Hehl & Obuchov’s Principles of Electromagnetism – A Contribution to the Unity of Classical Physics

I look at the connections between Hehl and Obuchov's electromagnetism principles and classical mechanics, and show that the most essential ones can be reduced to Newton, Euler, Lagrange, and Helmholtz's point-mechanical principles. This suggests that the Lorentz force and the
