# Einstein’s cosmology review of 1933: a new perspective on the Einstein-de Sitter model of the cosmos

@article{ORaifeartaigh2015EinsteinsCR, title={Einstein’s cosmology review of 1933: a new perspective on the Einstein-de Sitter model of the cosmos}, author={Cormac O’Raifeartaigh and Michael E. O'Keeffe and Werner Nahm and Simon A. Mitton}, journal={The European Physical Journal H}, year={2015}, volume={40}, pages={301-335} }

We present a first English translation and analysis of a little-known review of relativistic cosmology written by Albert Einstein in late 1932. The article, which was published in 1933 in a book of Einstein papers translated into French, contains a substantial review of static and dynamic relativistic models of the cosmos, culminating in a discussion of the Einstein-de Sitter model. The article offers a valuable contemporaneous insight into Einstein’s cosmology in the early 1930s and confirms… Expand
