THE EINSTEIN THEORY OF RELATIVITY A Concise Statement by Prof. H. A. Lorentz, of the University of Leyden The total eclipse of the sun of resulted in a striking confirmation of the new theory of the universal attractive power of gravitation developed by Albert Einstein, and thus reinforced the conviction that the defining of this theory.
