On the dating of a recently published Einstein manuscript: Could these be the calculations that gave Einstein "Heart palpitations"?

Michel Janssen, Robert Schulmann

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In a recent article in this journal a hitherto unknown two-page Einstein autograph manuscript was presented, and it was suggested that this manuscript dates from November 1915. We argue that the manuscript cannot predate early 1918. We also offer a speculative positive identification of the manuscript. These two pages may be lecture notes for a course on general relativity held in Zurich in 1919.
