Abstract

It is a little known fact that by 1918 Einstein understood there were major flaws in his 1905 Special Relativity Theory (SRT), and he attempted to correct some of them in a new paper. Today few people are aware of that 1918 paper, since it was published obscurely. A careful review of it suggests an explanation for its obscurity: it does not really do the job intended.
