An address by Gibbs, an AAAS Vice President, before the Section of Mathematics and Astronomy (Section A). 'The great merit and power of Grassmann's system, as set forth in Gibbs' address, lies in its generality and inclusiveness. It is in the recognition of different kinds of products that Grassmann's system differs most radically from the multiple algebras of the others, such as those of Hamilton and Pierce. And it was in connection with this concept of a plurality of multiplications that Gibbs founded his principal contributions to the subject. The development of the dyadic analysis undoubtedly forms Gibbs' most significant contribution to multiple algebra. His recognition of the key position of the indeterminate product in the Grassmannian system and its relation to the theory of matrices as well as his demonstration that both the algebraic and the external or combinatorial products could be derived from the indeterminate product, was an original contribution of great value' (Wheeler, Josiah Willard Gibbs, p. 113). According to Wheeler, Gibbs sent out 276 copies of the offprint, which was reset. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 21478
