Einstein - 1911 paper

  1. Mar 13, 2008 #1
    can anyone give me the webpage link of this paper by Einstein

    Einstein, Albert, 1911, "On the Influence of Gravity on the Propagation of Light", Annalen der Physik, 35: 898–90

    I heard that in this paper Einstein tells that velocity of light is changed by gravitational field...i want to read it...

    You need to be careful, in 1911 Einstein was not done developing GR, the part that you are interested in was later corrected , so his views in the 1911 paper are no longer considered correct by today's standards.

    Here is a book on both the Special and General Theories that Einstein wrote in 1920.
