Erste Ausgabe. - "Eötvös... decided... to return to Heidelberg, where he obtained his doctorate summa cum laude in the summer of 1870. Apparently the subject of his doctoral thesis was identical with the subjects of three papers published by him in 1871, 1874, and 1875; they dealt with a problem formulated by Fizeau. The question was raised whether the relative motion of a light source, with respect to an immobile ether, can be detected by measuring the light intensities in both the same and the opposite directions of the motion. Eötvös generalized the calculations for both the emitter and the detector being in motion and extended it to astronomical observations. This purely theoretical work became, decades later, the object of many important papers, leading ultimately to the theory of relativity" (DSB). - Gestempelt, die Tafeln verso.
