Transcript Russia's Gift to the World 31 mena, such as light, have led up to the theory that all physical phenomena are ultimately electrical, and to the modern theory of electrons, by which all matter is reduced to electricity. This means, among other things, that events are contemporaneous only as regards a single observer, and that another observer may see them in a different order, and this again leads directly to a philosophic question of the highest importance, " What is time ?" just as the other had done to the question, " What is space ? " In the discussion of the abstract problems which arise in this inquiry Minkovsky's work is the most brilliant which has been done. Besides these important names, among many others in the science of mathematics are those of Imsheretsky, who did work on differential equations in regions previously untouched in Western Europe, of Sonin and Lyapunov in analysis, of Markov in the theory of numbers, and of Nekrasov in theoretical dynamics. Nor should it be forgotten that, a few years ago, scientific Europe was stirred with interest by the revelation of the remarkable genius of a Russian woman mathematician, Sonya Kova- levskaya. PHYSICAL SCIENCE There are few branches of Physics which are not indebted to Russia for results of primary importance. Lebedev is a physicist of the first rank. To him we owe the detection, by means of most difficult and ingenious experiments, of the minute pressure exerted by light upon a reflecting surface. This research was a triumph of experimental skill and ingenuity. The confirmation by it of what had been predicted on theoretical grounds is a result of fundamental importance in electro-magnetic science, and has opened up a new line of research both in physics and in astronomy. As regards another equally important property of light, that of
