ONLY two years ago Dr. Ludwig Boltzmann, professor of physics in the University of Vienna, celebrated his sixtieth birthday. On that occasion a “Festschrift” was presented to him containing papers by about 125 physicists from all parts of the world. The announcement of Prof. Boltzmann's death, which was reported in the London papers of September 8, will be received with regret, not only by physicists of repute, but by every student who has attempted to gain an insight into the mysteries of molecular physics.
