The present volume contains all the published papers of Professor J. Willard Gibbs except those upon Thermodynamics, which are placed in Volume I. of this collection.
In a few cases slight corrections had been made by the author in his own copies of the papers. These changes, together with the correction of obvious misprints in the originals, have been incorporated in the present edition without comment. Where for the sake of clearness it has seemed desirable to insert a word or two in a footnote or in the text itself, the addition has been indicated by enclosing it within square brackets [ ], a sign which is otherwise used only in the formulæ.
