‎Reflexions sur la cause generale des vents. Piéce qui a remporté le prix proposé par l'Académie Royale des Sciences de Berlin, pour l'annee 1746‎

‎Paris, David l'aine, 1747. Petit in-4 de (8), XXVIII, 194, 138 pages et 2 planches repliées ; veau fauve de l'époque, dos à cinq nerf orné, pièce de titre en maroquin havane, tranches rouges, signet (petit manque à la pièce de titre)‎


‎Norman 34; DSB I, p.113; Sotheran 71; Honeyman 806. - First edition. "In 1747 d'Alembert published two more important works, one of which, the Réflexions sur la cause générale des Vents, won a prize from the Prussian Academy. In it appear the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics. Euler later perfected the techniques of using these equations ... D'Alembert's treatise on winds was the only of his works honored by a prize and, ironically, was later shown to be based on insufficient assumptions. D'Alembert assumed that wind patterns were the result of tidal effects on the atmosphere, and he relegated the influence of heat to a minor role, one that caused only local variations from the general circulation. Still, as a work on atmospheric tides it was successful, and Lagrange continued to praise d'Alemberts's efforts many years later." (DSB I, p.113).

Reference : 31091

(1747)

‎Reflexions sur la Cause Generale des Vents. Piece qui a remportà le Prix proposà par l'Academie Royale des Sciences de Berlin, pour l'annÃe 1746. 2 Parts (French and Latin). (Latin title: Meditationes de Generali Ventorum Causa...). - [THE FIRST USE OF PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS IN MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS]‎

‎Paris, David l'aine, 1747. 4to. Cont. full calf, raised bands. Rebacked in old style. Inner hinges strenghtened. Corners restored. Engraved title-vignette and 1 large engraved vignette in the text. (8),XXVIII,194,138 pp. and 2 engraved folded plates (all). First 4 and last 6 leaves waterstained in margins. Occational marginal dampstaining.‎


‎First edition, issued in the same year in both Paris and Berlin, but only the Paris-edition also has the Latin text, which was translated into French by d'Alembert himself.The work is highly important, as it is the first work at all in which the general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics appeared. D'Alembert discusses the mathematical theory of vibrations of cords and hereby he was led to partial differential equations which he applied to the ""Theory of Winds"" and laid the base of a scientific meteorology. He rejected the conception of Edmund Halley that the general circulation of the atmosphere is significantly controlled by the distribution of solar heating, and applies a mathematical theory, based on Newton's law of gravitation, thus explaining the winds by means of the gravitational forces from the sun and moon. - D'Alembert's name survives in the mathematics of today, the ""Dalabertian"" for wave equation, D'alembert's paradox in hydrodynamics etc. ‎
