Stanitz 79; Poggendorff IV, p. 153; DSB II, p. 266-7. FIRST EDITION of both parts. "In 1872, the Austrian physicist Ludwig Boltzmann (1844-1906) derived the transport equation for distribution of velocity among the molecules of a gas. This equation, which is so important in the kinetic theory of gases, had been previously derived by Maxwell, but the form in which Boltzmann derived it led him immediately to the concept of entropy as related to the probability of various velocity distributions among an assembly of gas molecules. This major contribution and many others that Boltzmann made to the kinetic theory of gases were summarized in his masterpiece of theoretical physics, 'Vorlesungen über Gastheorie'. This work can rightly be considered the peak of development achieved in the modern kinetic theory of gases."
