A six-volume collection of the scientific papers of Lord Kelvin (1824-1907), one of Britain's most eminent mathematical physicists. 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. Topics covered range from heat, electricity, magnetism and electrotelegraphy to hydrodynamics, tidal theory and navigation. • Author: William Thomson • ISBN:9781108029049 • Format:Multiple copy pack • Publication Date:2011-06-30
