THE ANALYTICAL THEORY OF HEAT

    Subjects

    Abstract

    THERE cannot be two opinions as to the value and importance of the Théorie de la Chaleur. It has been called “an exquisite mathematical poem,” not once but many times, independently, by mathematicians of different schools. Many of the very greatest of modern mathematicians regard it, justly, as the key which first opened to them the treasure-house of mathematical physics.

    The Analytical Theory of Heat.

    J. Fourier. Translated by A. Freeman (University Press, Cambridge, 1878.)
