Lectures on gas theory by Ludwig Boltzmann( Book )

44 editions published between 1902 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great masterpieces of theoretical physics, this classic work contains a comprehensive exposition of the kinetic theory of gases that is still relevant today, nearly 100 years after its first publication. Although the modifications of quantum mechanics have rendered some parts of the work obsolete, many of the topics dealt with still yield to the classical-mechanics approach outlined by Boltzmann; moreover, a variety of problems in aerodynamics, nuclear reactors, and thermonuclear power generation are best solved by Boltzmann's famous transport equation.The work is divided into two
Theoretical physics and philosophical problems : selected writings by Ludwig Boltzmann( Book )

L. The work of Ludwig Boltzmann (1844-1906) consists of two kinds of writings: in the first part of his active life he devoted himself entirely to problems of physics, while in the second part he tried to find a philosoph 1 ical background for his activities in and around the natural sciences. Most scientists are much more aware of his creative work in physics than of his digressions on the meaning and structure of science. I think in the present case the reason is not so much that most scientists are usually almost entirely occupied with their trade, because Boltzmann's philosophical work is also concerned with the (natural) sciences. I rather believe that the quality and consistency of Boltzmann's purely scientific work is of a more appealing nature than his less structured considerations on human activity in science and in life in general. 2. I think that it may be appropriate for the readers of this anthology to say a few words on the main findings of Boltzmann in physics, since in the end their 'philosophical' inlpact has been larger than the effect of his later writings. Moreover some knowledge of his scientific achievements can be helpful for the understanding and appreciation of the essays printed in this book, which almost all stem from Boltzmann's philosophical period. Boltzmann was one of the main protagonists - at least in continental Europe - of atomistics for explaining the phenomena of physics

Den Einleitung versehen, in der auch einige der Wechselwirkungen der Ideen Boltzmanns mit der traditionellen Ideenwelt unserer Zivilisation zur Sprache kommen. Die ,'popuHiren Schriften", die bei ganz verschiedenartigen Ge legenheiten und fUr unterschiedliche ZuhOrerkreise verfaBt wurden, sind in ungleichem MaB "popular". Zu beachten ist auch die Weite des Feldes, das Boltzmann behandelte, ohne daB man jemals das Geftihl be kame, es mit einem Dilettanten zu tun zu haben. Boltzmann war kein enger physikalischer Spezialist, sondern er nahm auch an Problemen der Biologie und der Philo sophie ebenso fachkundigen wie leidenschaft lichen Anteil. Sicher wird der Leser nicht nur eine Hille tiefer Gedan ken kennenlernen, sondern auch den titanenhaften Geist bewundern, der sie ausgesprochen hat. Urn die Wtirdigung zu erleichtern, sei nun noch ein kurzer zusammenfassender Uberblick tiber Boltzmanns Leben und besonders tiber sein Werk vorausgeschickt. Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann 2 wurde 1844 in Wien als Sohn eines Staatsbeamten geboren und verlor den Vater irn Alter von 15 Jahren
