These notes are concerned with the physics of phase transitions: the phenomenon that in particular environments, many systems exhibit singularities in the thermodynamic variables which best describe the macroscopic state of the system.

This paper reviews some selected approaches to the description of transport properties in crystalline and disordered metallic systems. A detailed formulation of the electron transport processes in metallic systems within a model approach is given.

Written by J. Willard Gibbs, this book was the first to bring together and arrange in logical order the works of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. The text remains a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles.
