Ludwig Boltzmann

Ludwig Boltzmann Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann (; February 20, 1844 – September 5, 1906) was an Austrian physicist and philosopher whose greatest achievement was in the development of statistical mechanics, which explains and predicts how the properties of atoms (such as mass, charge, and structure) determine the physical properties of matter (such as viscosity, thermal conductivity, and diffusion).

Boltzmann coined the word ''ergodic'' while he was working on a problem in statistical mechanics. Provided by Wikipedia
