      The Scientific Papers of J. Willard Gibbs, Vol. 1: Thermodynamics, by J. Willard Gibbs. - book suggestion. In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. There are two book-length biographies of Gibbs: Muriel Rukeyser, Willard Gibbs (), studies Gibbs as a creative thinker from a poet's point of view, and Lynde P. Wheeler, Josiah Willard Gibbs: The History of a Great Mind (), deals best with the technical side of Gibbs's work.

Deltete. Dec 28,  · With the exception of Professor J. Willard Gibbs's last work, Elementary Principles in Statistical Mechanics, and of his lectures upon Vector Analysis, adapted for use as a text-book by his pupil Dr. E. B. Wilson, and printed like the former as a volume of the Yale Bicentennial Series, none of his contributions to mathematical and physical science were published in separate form, but appeared.

      Willard Gibbs was born in in New Haven, Connecticut. His father was a literature and linguistics professor at the nearby Yale University. In fact, Gibbs came from a long line of academics. Gibbs approach to equilibrium --maximize S and minimize E,H,A, and G and is now the cornerstone of field of Chemical Thermodynamics, a field which he created in this book. He also invented A and G and greatly expanded the interpretations of H and E, yielding the general structure of thermodynamics. Gibbs' chemical potential is now a household word/5(3).
