This is probably not the appropriate forum to discuss general scalar 
theory, unless it is in some way connected to experimental results from 

A good place to start is E. T. Whittaker's papers.  Better yet, you may 
obtain "A History of the Theories of Aether and Electricity" by Sir 
Edmund Whittaker from any reference library.  Or, you may also purchase 
one as a reprint by the American Institute of Physics.  It's Volume 7.
