About this Item: Dover Publications, Inc, New York, 1960. Trade Paperback. Condition: Near Fine. First Dover Edition. 207 Pages plus a Fifteen Page Catalogue of Dover Science Books. Covers tend to curl up a bit and there is a previous owner's name label on the front endpaper. Interior text pages are flawless. This Dover edition, first published in 1960, is an unabridged and unaltered republication of the work originally published by Yale University Press in 1902. This is the last work of J. Willard Gibbs, the most distinguished American mathematical physicist of his day. Gibbs, whose Phase Rule founded a new department of physical science, undertakes in this work one of the first independent developments of statistical mechanics ever published. Still one of the most fundamental treatments of the subject available, this was perhaps the first book to bring together and arrange in logical order the achievements in this subject of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. It remains a lucid text for advanced students and a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles for workers in the field. The author begins by considering the general problem and the fundamental equation of statistical mechanics. He develops the basic principle of conservation of probability of phase, and then applies this principle to the theory of errors in the calculated phase: of a system and to the integration of the differential equations of motion. Gibbs goes or to consider canonical distribution and the average energy values in a canonical ensemble of systems. Later chapters provide formulas for evaluating important functions of the energies of system; equations defining the energy function ¢; and the microcanonical distribution in phase (in which all the systems have the same energy). Maximum and minimum properties of distribution in phase are discussed and a method developed for determining the motion of systems through long periods of time. The final chapters provide a valuable comparison of statistical mechanics with thermodynamics. Various mechanical processes analogous to such thermodynamic processes as Carnot's cycle are discussed and their effect on various systems studied. The author develops mechanical definitions of entropy and temperature in this section in order to provide a rational foundation for thermodynamics. Unabridged republication of 1902 edition.

About this Item: Manakin Press, 2018. Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: 1. General notions. The principle of conservation of extension-in-phase. 2. Application of the principle of conservation of extension-in-phase to the theory of errors. 3. Application of the principle of conservation of extension-in-phase to the integration of the differential equations of motion. 4. On the distribution-in phase called canonical, in which the index of probability is a linear function of the energy. 5. Average values in a canonical ensemble of systems. 6. Extension-in-configuration and extension-in-velocity. 7. Farther discussion of averages in a canonical ensemble of systems. 8. On certain important functions of the energies of a system. 9. The function and the canonical distribution. 10. On a distribution in phase called microcanonical in which all the systems have the same energy. 11. Maximum and minimum properties of various distributions in phase. 12. On the motion of systems and ensembles of systems through long periods of time. 13. Effect of various processes on an ensemble of systems. 14. Discussion of thermodynamic analogies. 15. Systems composed of molecules. In this book, Gibbs carefully showed how the laws of thermodynamics would arise exactly from a generic classical mechanical system, if one allowed for a certain natural uncertainty about the state of that system. The themes of thermodynamic connections to statistical mechanics had been explored in the preceding decades with Clausius, Maxwell, and Boltzmann together writing thousands of pages on this topic. One of Gibbs' aims in writing the book was to distill these results into a cohesive and simple picture (Gibbs wrote in 1892 to his colleague Lord Rayleigh, "Just now I am trying to get ready for publication something on thermodynamics from the priori point of view, or rather on 'statistical mechanics'. I do not know that I shall have anything particularly new in substance, but shall be contented if I can so choose my standpoint (as seems to me possible) as to get a simpler view of the subject."). He had been working on this topic for some time, at least as early as 1884 when he produced a paper (now lost except for its abstract) on the topic of statistical mechanics. Gibbs' book simplified statistical mechanics into a treatise of 207 pages. At the same time, Gibbs fully generalized and expanded statistical mechanics into the form in which it is known today. Gibbs showed how statistical mechanics could be used even to extend thermodynamics beyond classical thermodynamics, to systems of any number of degrees of freedom (including microscopic systems) and non-extensive systems. At the time of the book's writing, the prevailing understanding of nature was purely in classical terms as quantum mechanics had not yet been conceived; even basic facts taken for granted today (such as the existence of atoms) were still contested among scientists. Gibbs was careful in assuming the least about the nature of physical systems under study, and as a result the principles of statistical mechanics laid down by Gibbs have retained their accuracy (with some changes in detail but not in theme), in spite of the major upheavals of modern physics during the early 20th and 21st Century.
