The Theory of Heat Radiation

by

The Theory of Heat Radiation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nobel laureate's classic exposition of the theory of radiant heat in terms of the principle of quantum action. Topics include Kirchoff's law, black radiation, Maxwell's radiation pressure, entropy, and much more. Few modern introductions to the theory of heat radiation can match this book for precision, care, and attention to details of proof. 1914 edition. Bibliography.

Book News Annotation:

A reprint of the 1959 Morton Masius translation of the second edition (P. Blakiston Son & Co., 1914) of Planck's (1858-1947) classic exposition of the entire theory of radiant heat in terms of the then- recently discovered principle of quantum action.
