Willem De Sitter studied mathematics at Groningen and then joined the Groningen astronomical laboratory. He worked at the Cape Observatory in South Africa (1897-99) then, in 1908, de Sitter was appointed to the chair of astronomy at Leiden. From 1919 he was director of the Leiden Observatory. In 1913 de Sitter produced an argument based on observations of double star systems which proved that the velocity of light was independent of the velocity of the source. It put to rest attempts which had been made up until this time to find emission theories of light which depended on the velocity of the source but were not in conflict with experimental evidence. De Sitter corresponded with Ehrenfest in 1916, and he proposed that a four- dimensional space- time would fit in with cosmological models based on general relativity. He published a series of papers (1916-17) on the astronomical consequences of Einstein 's general theory of relativity. He found solutions to

Mach's Principle

Einstein's General Relativity
A title like 'Rotating Universes and Time Traveling' is certainly enough for some people to consider me a mad scientist or an incurable geek. Maybe they are right, I don't know. In any case, my Ph.D. thesis [1] deals with these subjects, particularly the rotation part. I believe there are some people on the Net who may be interested in this stuff. That's why I decided to write this article, largely based on my thesis, and put it online. I should mention that I left the research in 1984, and there may be some development in this area that I'm not aware of. I would be grateful if some reader could notify me in that case. The article begins with explaining what is meant by a rotating universe. Experience has shown that this is a very difficult concept. But as it is, Einstein's General Relativity theory does allow for rotating universes: There are such explicit mathematical solutions. Some of the rotating universes also turn out to have the shocking property that they allow (in theory) for traveling backwards in time, although the connection with rotation is not clear.

Time Travel - Fact or Fiction?
We define time travel to mean departure from a certain place and time followed (from the traveller's point of view) by arrival at the same place at an earlier (from the sedentary observer's point of view) time. Time travel paradoxes arise from the fact that departure occurs after arrival according to one observer and before arrival according to another. In the terminology of special relativity time travel implies that the timelike ordering of events is not invariant. This violates our intuitive notions of causality. However, intuition is not an infallible guide, so we must be careful. Is time travel really impossible, or is it merely another phenomenon where "impossible" means "nature is weirder than we think?" The answer is more interesting than you might think.
The Science Fiction Paradigm
The B-movie image of the intrepid chrononaut climbing into his time machine and watching the clock outside spin backwards while those outside the time machine watch the him revert to callow youth is, according to current theory, impossible. In current theory, the arrow of time flows in only one direction at any particular place. If this were not true, then one could not impose a 4-dimensional co-ordinate system on space-time, and many nasty consequences would result. Nevertheless, there is a scenario which is not ruled out by present knowledge. This usually requires an unusual spacetime topology (due to wormholes or strings in general relativity) which has not yet seen, but which may be possible. In this scenario the universe is well behaved in every local region; only by exploring the global properties does one discover time travel.

127. Quantum Mechanics Versus General Relativity
Quantum Mechanics versus general relativity. The classical hypothesis of Einstein was general relativity is more fundamental than Quantum theory.
Quantum Mechanics versus General Relativity
Which of these two theories is the more fundamental theory? The classical hypothesis of Einstein was: General Relativity is more fundamental than Quantum theory The majority of attempts to create a quantum gravity has been based on this assumption. In our concept for the quantization of gravity we propose here the reverse principle:
Principle of the Priority of Quantum Mechanics
The principle of the Priority of Quantum Mechanics is: Quantum theory is more fundamental than General Relativity. Our scheme of quantization may be described as a natural consequence of the application of this principle.
There are a lot of arguments for this point of view. Until now, we have already had some contradictions between the principles of GR and QM where the question was solved by experiment or theoretical considerations. In every case the winner of the competition seems to be QM: After Einstein, the basic principles of QM have been better understood. Remember only

Satellite observations of Black Holes confirm frame-dragging effect 80 years after prediction
November 6, 1997: T he next time you feel like you're barely dragging along, blame relativity. You'll be stretching the point, but it appears that Einstein was right: space and time get pulled out of shape near a rotating body. Einstein predicted the effect, called ``frame dragging,'' 80 years ago. Like many other aspects of Einstein's famous theories of relativity, it's so subtle that no conventional method could measure it. Using recent observations by X-ray astronomy satellites, including NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer , a team of astronomers is announcing that they see evidence of frame dragging in disks of gas swirling around a black hole. The discovery will be announced today at a meeting of the High Energy Astrophysics Division of the American Astronomical Society in Estes Park, Colo., by Dr. Wei Cui of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his colleagues, Dr. Nan Zhang

General Relativity
General Relativity by Kenyon [ ] and Principles of Physical Cosmology by Peebles [ ] have been closely followed. The book of Kenyon gives a very practical overview and contains information on many tests of general relativity, as well as descriptions of topics not covered here (gravitational waves, rotating black holes, etc.). The book of Peebles gives a more formal treatment of general relativity, and is centered on applications in cosmology. General relativity is a geometrical theory; whereas in the electroweak and strong interaction a quantum field in spacetime acts upon the particle fields, the spacetime itself is curved in the description of gravity in general relativity. This may lead to conceptual problems when one wants to construct a quantum theory of gravity; it implies a granular structure of spacetime itself. Presently, no quantum theory of gravity exists; the mathematical complexities of a theory with spin-2 gravitons as carriers of a gravitational field are too involved. However, we will ignore these issues, keeping in mind that general relativity is expected to break down at the Plank scale (about 10 m). First we will recall the fact that coordinate labels

Michigan Center for Theoretical Physics
May 21-25, 2001
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Two theories revolutionized the 20th century view of space and time: Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. Their union has spawned elementary particle theories with extra spacetime dimensions, the inflationary model of big-bang cosmology, dark matter in the universe, radiation from quantum black holes and the fuzzy spacetime geometry of superstrings and M-theory. These developments, derived from the 19th century mathematics of Riemannian geometry and Lie groups, have in their turn inspired new directions in the pure mathematics of topology and knot theory. In view of the mission of the Michigan Center for Theoretical Physics to provide a venue for interdisciplinary studies in the mathematical sciences, this Inaugural Conference will bring together Astronomers, Cosmologists, Particle Physicists and Mathematicians to share their different perspectives on the 21st century view of spacetime.
Invited speakers include:
