Leçons sur la Viscosité des Liquides et des Gaz


    BOTH the mathematical and experimental study of viscosity are admittedly of a high order of difficulty, and the author is to be congratulated on the clear and concise manner in which he has developed his subject. After summarising in the first chapter the early work on viscosity, the mathematical treatment of the subject is fully developed in the following four chapters. The second part of the first volume is devoted to a description of experimental work. Each of the principal memoirs is described and subjected to a careful criticism; this part of the book is very complete, and is absolutely free from the tendency to ignore work done outside France occasionally met with in French standard works.
