"In his first scientific paper at Stockholm (1931), Klein gave, in the tradition of Gibb's statistical mechanics, an explanation of the thermodynamic irreversibility paradoxically generated by mechanically reversible systems. For this purpose he used an inequality (later known as Klein's lemma) for the statistical probability given by the density matrix introduced by Dirac." DSB.
