Paper Abstract

While studying the concepts of energy, entropy, and action propagation through the aether, the authors had occasion to review the ideas used by those who founded the age of modern physics. This paper will revisit this era using Sir Edmund Whittaker's treatise, A History of the Theories of Aether and Electricity,1 Max Planck's The Theory of Heat Radiation,2 and Arnold Sommerfeld's Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics.3 as primary reference sources.
