"The math and physics that I see in the CSN are extremely trivial for what was known by that time. Everything really valuable in the notes is empirical or experimental. The calculations are just trivialities, and the physics virtually nonexistent. It was already mentioned that Tesla apparently didnt' understand how distributed capacitances work, and I certainly agree.

Probably you're correct - the "math" is really arithmetic but he did know how to calculate inductance and resonant frequency and I know guys today who don't seem to be able to do that. I don't remember where distributed capacitance would have come in. I don't really know what a working engineer of that time would have known or used. Certainly Tesla's experimental results are of interest, even the ones where he thought he observed standing waves in the earth. Apparently he knew how to design machines (it's incredible the amount of equipment he built or had built) and it would be interesting to see how he went about that.
