Lorentz’s Theory and the Conservation of Momentum

  • 166 Accesses

Abstract

Most likely it will seem strange that at a moment raised to the glory of Lorentz I return to the considerations that I previously presented as an objection to his theory. I could state that the following pages instead are of a nature to reduce this objection and not deepen it.
