Default heat and temperature

Dear F,
Oh yes.
I am a big kelvin fan. He was a great mathematican and physicist. ( He was a
prof of math).
Kelvin used the telegraph Partial Differential equation to save millions of
dollars in the submarine cable project ( and to make it actually work
correctly--time delay depends on frequency and physical parameters of the
cable.). He was knighted for this.
And, of course, he has a temperature scale named after him!
best
Penny

"what's dah go of it?"--Kelvin
