The PhD thesis of Kamerlingh Onnes





This thesis by Kamerlingh Onnes is available here as a series of PDF files, each of which is maybe about 1MB in size. The last three seem to be the most interesting; the first nine are mostly concerned with a mass of mathematics which, while certainly ground-breaking in its day, is now rather obsolete in its presentation.
