The Dutch physicist Hendrik Antoon Lorentz (1853–1928) was educated at the University of Leiden, where he later became a Professor of Theoretical Physics. A leading figure in his field, he established the basic mathematical principles that were later used by Albert Einstein for his theory of relativity. Lorentz and his colleague Pieter Zeeman won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1902 for their researches into the influence of magnetism upon radiation phenomena (the Zeeman effect). In 1905 Lorentz was also elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, which awarded him the Rumford and Copley Medals. Contributing to the discussion of the theory of a luminiferous ether - soon to be superseded by special relativity - this work, first published in 1895, looks at electromagnetic phenomena (the propagation of light) in relation to moving bodies and optics
The Einstein theory of relativity; a concise statement by H. A Lorentz( Book )

29 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it is true or not that not more than twelve persons in all the world are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a fact that there is a constant demand for information about this much-debated topic of relativity. The books published on the subject are so technical that only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics is able to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this far-reaching theory available, the present book is published

This volume contains the important work which the late Professor H.A. Lorentz did to develop Maxwell's theory in the years before his middle age. It begins with the treatise concerning the relation be tween the propagation of light and the density of media. The Lorenz Lorentz formula is arrived at (page 57) and an electromagnetic dispersion theory of light is developed (p. 70, Bo) for the first time, so far as we know. This work was finished as early as I878: in an abridged form the results were published in Wiedemann's An nalen der Physik und Chemie (9, 64I, I88o); until now the com plete treatise was only accessible in the Dutch language. In the following dozen years the development of Maxwell's theory was carried further and the result was the paper published in I892, which is found in the end of the volume. The work of Boltz mann and Hertz dates from the same period. Lorentz took the view that matter was perfectly permeable to the ether and that the latter was invariably at rest. Still, after Hertz published his theory based on the idea that the ether contained in moving bodies completely shared the motion, Lorentz inserted a chapter developing the inferences to be drawn from this axiom (p. 206) which was contradictory to the line he followed himself in order to account for Fresnel's coefficient
