Gustav Jaumann

photo neededIn thermodynamics, Gustav Jaumann (1863-1924) was an Austrian physicist who, according to Belgian chemist Ilya Prigogine, was the leader of the Vienna school of thermodynamics.

Jaumann was a student of Ernst Mach and carried Mach’s prejudice against atoms far into the twentieth-century, resulting to make himself an outsider of scientific circles. [1]

Jumann, to note, sought Boltzmann’s chair at his reaction end demise, which he was officially offered, but rejected, for unclear reasons. [2]
