Details
EINSTEIN, Albert (1879-1955)
Autograph manuscript, n.p., n.d. [early 1940s], draft of a scientific paper on Unified Field Theory.
In German, one page, 278 x 216mm, numbered '10' in autograph.

A densely mathematical series of workings: apparently unpublished and unstudied. Einstein explores 'a possible field equation for the scalar field F', on which he operates a limitation through differentiation, working through a series of equations to conclude 'From this also follows the scalar character of a sum of the type...'.

This leaf appears to relate to Einstein's early work on asymmetric Unified Field Theory, his final approach to the problem which dominated his work from the late 1920s onwards. The approach was first published in his 1945 article 'Generlization of the relativistic theory of gravitation'.
