For more than twenty years Poincaré lectured at the Sorbonne on mathematical physics; he gave himself to that task with his characteristic thoroughness and energy, with the result that he became an expert in practically all parts of theoretical physics, and published more than seventy papers and books on the most varied subjects, with a predilection for the theories of light and of electromagnetic waves. On two occasions he played an important part in the development of the new ideas and discoveries that revolutionized physics at the end of the nineteenth century... Poincaré was active in the discussions concerning Lorentz' theory of the electron from 1899 on; Poincaré was the first to observe that the Lorentz transformations form a group... and many physicists consider that Poincaré shares with Lorentz and Einstein the credit for the invention of the special theory of relativity (DSB). - Einband minimal bestoßen, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 11, 51
