Riemann geometry and hydrostatic

  1. Mar 22, 2009 #1
    I read in Elie CARTAN book : "la Géométrie des espace de Riemann" that when R = cte, you can compare space-time to hydrostatic description of a liquid. Is it true ?

    Why would you doubt Elie Cartan?

    [EDIT]: More precisely why would you take the word of a random reply here over the word of Cartan if the two should differ?
