Abstract


Our Debt to Einstein

Domina Eberle Spencer
Year: 1997
The text of our entire meeting could be taken from Psalm 1, Verse 2, \"... in his law doth he meditate day and night\". In our meditation we are inspired by the ideas of Einstein: by his use of clearly stated postulates, his use of tensor calculus, his introduction of the Einstein summation convention, his venture into dimensional space, and the idea that the fundamental equations of physics should be expressed in tensor form. Yet we must not follow Einstein slavishly. Experiments which have already been studied impel us to modify Einstein\'s postulate on the velocity of light and to modify MaxweU\'s equations. We visualize a formulation of the fundamental equations of physics which is valid in all coordinate system and is expressed in terms of holors rather than tensors.
