Ludwik Silberstein (1872 1948) was a Polish-American physicist who helped make special relativity and general relativity staples of university coursework. Silberstein was invited to lecture at the University of Toronto.The influence of these lectures on John Lighton Synge has been noted:Synge had also been strongly influenced a few months previously [in January 1921] by a Toronto lecture series organized by J.C. McLennan on "Recent Advances in Physics", at which Silberstein gave eighteen lectures on "Special and Generalized Theories of Relativity and Gravitation, and on Spectroscopy", all from a mathematical standpoint. Silberstein would go on to have a contentious argument with Einstein on gravity and relativity which he lost. Very scarce first edition. ; Ex-Library; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 141 pages
