by Josiah Willard Gibbs

**Publisher**: Charles Scribner's Sons 1902**ISBN/ASIN**: 0486789950**Number of pages**: 273

**Description**:

Written by J. Willard Gibbs, the most distinguished American mathematical physicist of the nineteenth century, this book was the first to bring together and arrange in logical order the works of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. The lucid, advanced-level text remains a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles.
