Matter and motion by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

39 editions published between 1920 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scottish physicist Maxwell (1831-1879) first published this primer on dynamics in 1876. Maxwell introduces the fundamental physical knowledge of his time in chapters on motion, force, properties of the center of mass, work and energy, recapitulation, the pendulum and gravity, and universal gravitation. Also included is a chapter on equations of motions, taken from Maxwell's A Treatise of Electricity and Magnetism (1873), and two appendices treating the principle of relativity of motion and the principle of least action. As no contextual information has been added, the text will likely be of most interest to those already familiar with Maxwell's place in scientific history.

Mathematical and physical papers by George Gabriel Stokes( Book )

11 editions published between 1880 and 2009 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir George Stokes (1819–1903) established the science of hydrodynamics with his law of viscosity describing the velocity of a small sphere through a viscous fluid. He published no books, but was a prolific lecturer and writer of papers for the Royal Society, the British Association for the Advancement of Science, the Victoria Institute and other mathematical and scientific institutions. These collected papers (issued between 1880 and 1905) are therefore the only readily available record of the work of an outstanding and influential mathematician, who was Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in Cambridge for over fifty years, Master of Pembroke College, President of the Royal Society (1885–1890), Associate Secretary of the Royal Commission on the University of Cambridge and a Member of Parliament for the University
Memoir and scientific correspondence of the late Sir George Gabriel Stokes, bart. by George Gabriel Stokes( Book )

16 editions published between 1907 and 2010 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge and President of the Royal Society, Sir George Gabriel Stokes (1819-1904) made substantial contributions to the fields of fluid dynamics, optics, physics, and geodesy, in which numerous discoveries still bear his name. The Memoir and Scientific Correspondence of the Late Sir George Gabriel Stokes, Bart., edited by Joseph Larmor, offers rare insight into this capacious scientific mind, with letters attesting to the careful, engaged experimentation that earned him international acclaim. Volume 1 (1907) includes a memoir - culled from the reminiscences of family, friends, and colleagues - and letters, including early correspondence with Lady Stokes during the time of their engagement and early marriage. Professional correspondence covers Stokes' discoveries in the areas of spectroscopy, fluorescence, and colour vision. The result is an intimate portrait of a brilliant mathematician - both in the early stages of his career and at the height of his intellectual powers

The scientific papers of the Honourable Henry Cavendish by Henry Cavendish( Book )

10 editions published between 1921 and 2010 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Cavendish (1731-1810) was an English scientist whose published work was mostly concerned with electricity. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1760. Cavendish was a prolific scientific investigator, performing experiments on not only electricity but also magnetism, thermometry, gases, heat potential and the chemical composition of water. Although he published some of his research, including his discovery of hydrogen, the majority of his work remained unpublished until 1879, when James Clerk Maxwell published a collection of Cavendish's electrical experiments. These papers showed that Cavendish had discovered many important electrical concepts which had since been credited to other researchers, including the concept of electric potential. First published in 1921, these volumes are a collection of Cavendish's results from his many experiments. Volume 2 contains previously unpublished papers showing the results of Cavendish's chemical, magnetic and thermometry experiments

Mathematical and physical papers : collected from different scientific periodicals from May, 1841, to the present time by William Thomson Kelvin( )

10 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Thomson, first Baron Kelvin (1824-1907), is best known for devising the Kelvin scale of absolute temperature and for his work on the first and second laws of thermodynamics, though throughout his 53-year career as a mathematical physicist and engineer at the University of Glasgow he investigated a wide range of scientific questions in areas ranging from geology to transatlantic telegraph cables. The extent of his work is revealed in the six volumes of his Mathematical and Physical Papers, published from 1882 until 1911, consisting of articles that appeared in scientific periodicals from 1841 onwards. Volume 6, published in 1911, includes articles from the period 1867-1907. The chapters in the first part of the work focus on voltaic theory and radioactivity, while later ones examine navigation and tides
