    William Thomson's Dynamical Theory: An Insight Into a Scientist's Thinking.Harold Issadore Sharlin - 1975 - Annals of Science 32 (2):133-147.
    William Thomson, later Lord Kelvin, played a major role in the nineteenth century in changing scientific theory from the statical view, associated with imponderables, to the dynamical view which conceived of energy as a separate and convertible entity. Thomson's conversion from the statical to the dynamical view of nature was due to the influence of experimentalists, Michael Faraday and James Prescott Joule. It was Thomson's use of mathematical metaphor that enabled him to interpret on a (...)

    Engineering the Universe: William Thomson and Fleeming Jenkin on the Nature of Matter.Crosbie Smith - 1980 - Annals of Science 37 (4):387-412.
    Based largely on unpublished manuscript material from the Kelvin papers, and especially on a series of letters exchanged in 1867 between Fleeming Jenkin and William Thomson , this paper aims to examine the background and content of the Thomson-Jenkin speculations on the nature of matter. The letters formed an interlude in a long collaboration over electrical patents and raise the fundamental question of whether these speculations, involving the construction of a variety of conceptual models, derive primarily (...)

    Heaviside and Kelvin: A Study in Contrasts.B. R. Gossick - 1976 - Annals of Science 33 (3):275-287.
    Oliver Heaviside and Sir William Thomson stand in such contrast that the life of each serves to illuminate the life of the other. Thomson's talents, which were recognized at an early age, were cultivated with possibly unsurpassed educational opportunities, whereas Heaviside had scarcely any educational opportunities and was essentially self-taught. Nevertheless, Heaviside's published and unpublished works suggest that the breadth and depth of his learning were more or less comparable to Thomson's. Being an outstanding student at (...)

    The Humanist Case for Population Reform.Kelvin Thomson - 2012 - The Australian Humanist (106):3.
    Thomson, Kelvin You might be surprised to learn that China, home of the much derided one-child policy, has a higher birth rate than Italy, home of the Vatican. This suggests Chinese families are quietly defying their political leaders and Italian families are quietly defying their religious ones. But the overall global picture is one of rapid population growth.

    Natural Philosophy and Thermodynamics: William Thomson and ‘The Dynamical Theory of Heat’.Crosbie Smith - 1976 - British Journal for the History of Science 9 (3):293-319.
    William Thomson's image as a professional mathematical physicist who adheres, particularly in his work in classical thermodynamics, to a strict experimental basis for his science, avoids speculative hypotheses, and becomes renowned for his omission of philosophical declarations has been reinforced in varying degrees by those historians who have attempted, as either admirers or critics of Thomson, to describe and assess his life. J. G. Crowther, for example, sees him as a thinker of great intellectual strength, but deficient (...)

    William Thomson and the Heritage of Caloric.Penha Maria Cardoso Dias - 1996 - Annals of Science 53 (5):511-520.
    William Thomson published between 1849 and 1852 three influential papers on the theory of heat. However, historians of science have already called attention to Thomson's difficulties in reconciling a principle formulated by James Prescott Joule with another principle formulated by Nicolas Leonard Sadi Carnot, and to errors Thomson made in his calculations. In the meantime, Rudolf Julius Emmanuel Clausius reconciled the two principles, and in 1854 he derived an expression for Carnot's principle. The author and collaborators (...)

  11. The Absolute and its Measurement; William Thomson on Temperature.Hasok Chang & Sang Wook Yi - 2005 - Annals of Science 62 (3):281-308.
    In this paper we give a full account of the work of William Thomson on absolute temperature, which to this day provides the theoretical underpinnings for the most rigorous measurements of temperature. When Thomson fashioned his concepts of ‘absolute’ temperature, his main concern was to make the definition of temperature independent of the properties of particular thermometric substances . He tried out a succession of definitions based on the thermodynamics of ideal heat engines; most notably, in 1854 (...)

  12. Thomson's Turnabout on the Trolley.William J. FitzPatrick - 2009 - Analysis 69 (4):636-643.
    The famous ‘trolley problem’ began as a simple variation on an example given in passing by Philippa Foot , involving a runaway trolley that cannot be stopped but can be steered to a path of lesser harm. By switching from the perspective of the driver to that of a bystander, Judith Jarvis Thomson showed how the case raises difficulties for the normative theory Foot meant to be defending, and Thomson compounded the challenge with further variations that created still (...)

  13. Thomson's Lamp is Dysfunctional.William I. McLaughlin - 1998 - Synthese 116 (3):281-301.
    James Thomson envisaged a lamp which would be turned on for 1 minute, off for 1/2 minute, on for 1/4 minute, etc. ad infinitum. He asked whether the lamp would be on or off at the end of 2 minutes. Use of “internal set theory” (a version of nonstandard analysis), developed by Edward Nelson, shows Thomson's lamp is chimerical; its copy within set theory yields a contradiction. The demonstration extends to placing restrictions on other “infinite tasks” such as (...)

    Deepwater basins around the world contain shallow sequences of overpressured, sand-prone sediments that can result in shallow water flow events. These events have frequently resulted in wellbore instability and increased man-hour exposure to potential health, safety, security, and environment risks, as well as nonproductive time, and they have sometimes been the cause of the loss of a well while drilling the shallow section for oil and gas exploration or development projects. Methods previously established to classify the magnitude of an SWF (...)

    Faraday, Thomson, and the Concept of the Magnetic Field.David Gooding - 1980 - British Journal for the History of Science 13 (2):91-120.
    In June 1849 William Thomson wrote to Michael Faraday suggesting that the concept of a uniform magnetic field could be used to predict the motions of small magnetic and diamagnetic bodies. In his letter Thomson showed how Faraday's lines of magnetic force could represent the effect of the ‘conducting power’ for magnetic force of matter in the region of magnets. This was Thomson's extension to magnetism of an analogy between the mathematical descriptions of the distribution of (...)
