Part One describes the older formula of statistico-mechanical investigations (kineto-statistics of the molecule). half takes up the fashionable formula of kineto-statistics of the gasoline version, and half 3 explores W. B. Gibbs's significant paintings, Elementary rules in Statistical Mechanics and its assurance of such themes because the challenge of axiomatization in kineto-statistics, the creation of canonical and microcanonical distributions, and the analogy to the observable habit of thermodynamic platforms. The booklet concludes with the authors' unique notes, a sequence of precious appendixes, and a worthwhile bibliography.
