Download E-books Die Entwicklung des Tensorkalküls: Vom absoluten Differentialkalkül zur Relativitätstheorie (Science Networks. Historical Studies) (German Edition) PDF

Die allgemeine Relativitästheorie lässt sich nur mit Hilfe des Tensorkalküls formulieren. Diesen lernte Einstein 1912 in shape des absoluten Differentialkalküls kennen. Dessen Schöpfer battle Gregorio Ricci, dem zusammen mit Sophus Lie und anderen der Ausbau der Theorie der Differentialinvarianten gelang. Der absolute Differentialkalkül passte zur allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie wie ein Schlüssel zum Schloss: der in den Jahren 1884-92 von Ricci entwickelte Kalkül erfüllte in der Tat genau das physikalische Konzept der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, das Einstein 1907-15 ausarbeitete. Ein derartiges Zusammenpassen warfare nur dadurch möglich, weil sowohl Ricci innerhalb der Mathematik als auch Einstein innerhalb der Physik vergleichbare Fragen stellten, nämlich Fragen nach Invarianten bei speziellen Transformationen. Es wird versucht, den historischen Weg so genau wie möglich anhand der Quellen nachzuzeichnen. Neu ist die Herausarbeitung des invariantentheoretischen Aspekts, dem gegenüber die Bedeutung der Differentialgeometrie für die Entwicklung des Tensorkalküls in den Hintergrund treten muss.
