A new form of the general relativistic field equations

FIRST EDITION, OFFPRINT ISSUE, of Einstein’s last published scientific paper, written in collaboration with Israeli mathematician Bruria Kaufman, who served as Einstein’s assistant at Princeton from 1950 until Einstein’s death on April 18, 1955.

“Kaufman was Einstein’s last collaborator. She and Einstein wrote two joint papers, both dealing with asymmetric connections.The last collaborative effort in Einstein’s life was completed in January 1955” (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 497). The paper was published posthumously. Not in Weil (which does not list works later than 1954).

Offprint from: Annals of Mathematics 62 (1955). pp. 128-138. 255 x 177 mm. Original printed wrappers. Fine copy.
