One of Gibbs's ideas that has gone unnoticed (comment on chapter IX of his classic book)

We show that contrary to the commonly accepted view, Chapter IX of Gibbs's book [1] contains the prolegomena to a macroscopic statistical theory that is qualitatively different from his own microscopic statistical mechanics. The formulas obtained by Gibbs were the first results in the history of physics related to the theory of fluctuations in any macroparameters, including temperature. © 2006 Uspekhi Fizicheskikh Nauk, Russian Academy of Sciences.
