Most widely held works by Joseph Larmor
Matter and motion by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )

43 editions published between 1920 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published posthumously in 1888, this treatise by the first Cavendish Professor of Physics at Cambridge explores and explains the fundamental principles and laws that are the basis of elementary physics. Maxwell was at the forefront of physics and mathematics during the nineteenth century and his pioneering work brought together existing ideas to give 'a dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field'. This work inspired not only the applications of electromagnetic waves like fibre optics but also Einstein's theory of relativity. The text explains many

Science and hypothesis by Henri Poincaré( Book )

20 editions published between 1905 and 1952 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science and Hypothesis is a study written in 1902, by the French mathematician, Henri Poincar.̌ It was designed with non-specialist readers in mind, and contains information on mathematics, space, physics, and biology. The main theme of this work is that the absolute truth of science is non-existent. It postulates that many scientific beliefs are closer to convenient conventions than valid explanations. The chapters of this book include: "Number and Magnitude", "On the Nature of Mathematical Reasoning", "Mathematical Magnitude and Experiment", "Space", "Non-Euclidean Geometries", "Space and Geometry", "Experiment and Geometry", etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an available, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author

Mathematical and physical papers : collected from different scientific periodicals from May, 1841, to the present time by William Thomson Kelvin( Book )

8 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Thomson, first Baron Kelvin (1824–1907), is best known for devising the Kelvin scale of absolute temperature and for his work on the first and second laws of thermodynamics, though throughout his 53-year career as a mathematical physicist and engineer at the University of Glasgow he investigated a wide range of scientific questions in areas ranging from geology to transatlantic telegraph cables. The extent of his work is revealed in the six volumes of his Mathematical and Physical Papers, published from 1882 until 1911, consisting of articles that appeared in scientific periodicals from 1841 onwards. Volume 6, published in 1911, includes articles from the period 1867–1907. The chapters in the first part of the work focus on voltaic theory and radioactivity, while later ones examine navigation and tides

MEMOIR AND SCIENTIFIC CORRESPONDENCE OF THE LATE SIR GEORGE GABRIEL STOKES, BART by George Gabriel Stokes( Book )

8 editions published between 1907 and 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge and President of the Royal Society, Sir George Gabriel Stokes (1819–1904) made substantial contributions to the fields of fluid dynamics, optics, physics, and geodesy, in which numerous discoveries still bear his name. The Memoir and Scientific Correspondence of the Late Sir George Gabriel Stokes, Bart., edited by Joseph Larmor, offers rare insight into this capacious scientific mind, with letters attesting to the careful, engaged experimentation that earned him international acclaim. Volume 1 (1907) includes a memoir - culled from the reminiscences of family, friends, and colleagues - and letters, including early correspondence with Lady Stokes during the time of their engagement and early marriage. Professional correspondence covers Stokes' discoveries in the areas of spectroscopy, fluorescence, and colour vision. The result is an intimate portrait of a brilliant mathematician - both in the early stages of his career and at the height of his intellectual powers
