Contains a comprehensive exposition of the kinetic theory of gases by a scientist whoâ€¦.bought it very nearly to completion as a fundamental part of modern physics. When Vorlesungen Ã¼ber Gastheorie was first published in 1896-1998, it was the standard, comprehensive treatise for about the first quarter of the 20th century. At the time atomic theory was under attack and Boltzmann feared that it might be forgotten, so he published what he considered to have permanent value. He did not live to see it triumph.
