Description

The Austrian physicist Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann (1844-1906), educated at the University of Vienna, was appointed professor of mathematical physics at the University of Graz in 1869 at the age of only twenty-five.

Boltzmann did important work in the fields of statistical mechanics and statistical thermodynamics; for instance, he contributed to the kinetic theory concerned with molecular speeds in gas.

Boltzmann also promoted atomic theory, which at the time was still highly controversial.

He was a member of the Imperial Austrian Academy of Sciences from 1885 and became a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1888.

This three-volume work, prepared in 1909 by the physicist Fritz Hasenoehrl, one of Boltzmann's students, comprises all his academic publications from 1865 to 1905.

Volume 1 contains papers from 1865 to 1874, including work on the movement of electricity, the theory of heat, and atoms in gases.
