Albert Einstein (18791955) 

Since 1991, UN/ESA/NASA
Workshops on Basic Space Science follow efforts
on the generalization of BOLTZMANNGIBBS statistical mechanics
(IHY2007:UN/ESA/NASA/UAE).
In 1905, EINSTEIN's approach to statistical mechanics was founded on the principal that noise, like other natural phenomena, is an expression of physical and mathematical laws. In this connection, EINSTEIN posed an argument that neither Herr BOLTZMANN nor Herr PLANCK has given a definition of W:
dS ≥ 0  (CLAUSIUS)  dS = d_{i}S + d_{e}S  (PRIGOGINE)  
S = k lnW  (BOLTZMANN)

In conjuction with UN/ESA/NASA Workshops on Basic Space Science, SERC Schools (Science and Engineering Research Council, Department of Science and Technology, Government of India) have been held in 1995, 2000, 2005, 2006, and 2007 at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Trivandrum and Pala, India.
