ANTICIPATIONS OF EINSTEIN IN THE GENERAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY
In 1997, amid much fanfare, Leo Corry announced to the world that he had uncovered proof that Albert Einstein arrived at the generally covariant field equations of gravitation, before David Hilbert. Leo Corry joined with Juergen Renn and John Stachel and published an article in the journal Science arguing against Hilbert's priority. Their claims were largely based on a set of printer's proofs of David Hilbert's 20 November 1915 Goettingen lecture, which Corry had uncovered. However, in this 1997 article, "Belated Decision in the HilbertEinstein Priority Dispute," Corry, Renn and Stachel failed to disclose the fact that these printer's proofs were mutilated, and are missing a critical part. Full disclosure of the facts reveals that even in their mutilated state, these proofs prove that Hilbert had a generally covariant theory of gravitation before Einstein, and that Einstein plagiarized these equations from Hilbert. Jurgen Renn, himself, once admitted, "I had personally come to the conclusion that Einstein plagiarized Hilbert[.] [The] conclusion is almost unavoidable, that Einstein must have copied from Hilbert." [C. Suplee, 'Researchers Definitively Rule Einstein Did Not Plagiarize Relativity Theory', The Washington Post, (14 November 1997), p. A24.]
The author of Albert Einstein: The Incorrigible Plagiarist focuses in on the general theory of relativity and discredits the baseless historical revisionism of Leo Corry, Jürgen Renn and John Stachel. The direct comparison of primary source material demonstrates that Albert Einstein did not originate the theory of relativity. Formal mathematical proofs explain how Einstein was forced to fudge his equations in order to derive the results Paul Gerber and Johann Georg von Soldner had published long before him. Einstein did not yet have the benefit of plagiarizing David Hilbert's generally covariant field equations of gravitation and was operating under an erroneous assumption. An extensive history of the principle of equivalence proves that Einstein plagiarized this idea. The book reprints the relevant papers by Einstein, Soldner, Gerber, and Hilbert, as well as the remainder of David Hilbert's mutilated printer's proofs of his article "The Foundations of Physics". While the book presents the mathematical proofs needed to justify its claims, the nonmathematical reader will find it rich in prose and will be able to follow the arguments and the history presented.
A FEW OF THE QUOTATIONS FOUND IN THE BOOK:
"In
a sense, Einstein had 'appropriated' Hilbert's contribution to the
gravitational field equations as a march of his own ideasor so it
would seem from the reading of his 1916 Ann. d. Phys. paper on the
foundations of general relativity."Prof. Jagdish Mehra
*
* *
"[Hilbert]
would soon [***] pinpoint flaws in Einstein's rather pedestrian way
of dealing with the mathematics of his gravitation theory."Dr.
Tilman Sauer
*
* *
".
. .Gerber, who has given the correct formula for the perihelion motion
of Mercury before I did."Albert Einstein
*
* *
"Remarkably,
Einstein was not the first to discover the correct form of the law
of warpage [***] Recognition for the first discovery must go to Hilbert."Prof.
Kip Thorne
*
* *
"No
unprejudiced person can deny that, in the absence of direct and incontrovertible
proofs establishing his innocence, Einstein must, in view of the circumstantial
evidence previously presented, stand convicted before the world as
a plagiarist."Prof. Arvid Reuterdahl
*
* *
"Thus,
with what is known as the special theory, if we consider as paramount
factor not the detail work but the guiding thoughts by which this
was inspired, then the father of this special relativity theory was
undoubtedly Henri Poincare. [***] In the general theory of relativity
the basic thought is that of Mach, viz. the replacement in dynamics
of the law of gravitation by a law of motion. But in what Einstein
built upon this basis the influence of Poincare is again manifest.
[***] And in view of all these facts one does not know at which to
be most astounded: the magnanimity of Poincare who was always overanxious
that there should be recognition of the labors of those who reaped
where he himself had sown, the apathy of his friends after his death,
or the peculiar attitude of Einstein and his coterie, exemplified
by Born of Goettingen, who refers to Poincare as one of those who
'collaborated' with Einstein in the development of the relativity
theory!"Robert P. Richardson
*
* *
"From
these facts the conclusion seems inevitable that Einstein cannot be
regarded as a scientist of real note. He is not an honest investigator."Prof.
O. E. Westin
