Where can I find the paper of Hilbert's derivation of General Relativity's field equations? I heard it is more elegant than Einstein's. Thanks
I believe the paper you quote is right. After a lot of sleuthing, I found it in English, broken up into two parts:yossell said:Would this be the paper you're looking for?

I can't read German myself.
Cool. Let me know when you're done, I'd love to discuss with you guys in my mother tongue.I'll have to learn German
Hilbert's Derivation of Field Equations refers to the mathematical process developed by German mathematician David Hilbert to describe the behavior of gravitational fields in the theory of general relativity.
2.Hilbert's Derivation of Field Equations was significant because it provided a more elegant and concise way to express the theory of general relativity, compared to the original equations developed by Albert Einstein.
3.Tensors play a crucial role in Hilbert's Derivation of Field Equations as they are used to describe the curvature of space-time in the theory of general relativity. Hilbert's equations involve ten different tensor equations that describe the gravitational field and its interaction with matter.
4.Hilbert's Derivation of Field Equations differs from Einstein's equations in that it provides a more elegant and concise mathematical formulation of the theory of general relativity. Hilbert's equations also include a term known as the cosmological constant, which Einstein initially did not include in his equations.
5.Yes, Hilbert's Derivation of Field Equations is still widely used in the field of general relativity and has been instrumental in various applications, such as predicting the gravitational waves detected in 2015. However, some modifications have been made to the equations over time to incorporate new theories and discoveries.
