Summary:
In 1915 and 1916 Emmy Noether was asked by Felix Klein and David Hilbert to assist them in understanding issues involved in any attempt to formulate a general theory of relativity, in particular the new ideas of Einstein. She was consulted particularly over the difficult issue of the form a law of conservation of energy could take in the new theory, and she succeeded brilliantly, finding two deep theorems.

Abstract:

This book carries a translation of Noether's original paper into English, and then describes the strange history of its reception and the responses to her work. The book clearly shows how long it  Read more...
