The Classical Theory of Fields Revision Project (CTFRP)

The Course in Theoretical Physics by L.Landau and E.Lifshitz

has for decades served as a set of outstanding textbooks

for students and reference for researchers. Many continue to

learn their basic physics from this lucid and extensive exposition

of physical theory and relevant mathematical methods.

The second volume of this series of texts, The Classical

Theory of Fields, is a mainstay source for physicists learning

or conducting research in General Relativity. However,

it has been realised over the years that The Classical Theory

of Fields contains a number of serious theoretical errors.

The errors are in general not peculiar to this book alone, but

are

****fundamental misconceptions that appear routinely in all

textbooks on General Relativity,******

without exception.

Save for the errors alluded to above, The Classical Theory

of Fields remains an authoritative and skilful exposition

of Einsteins theory of gravitation. To enhance its already

great standing in the scientific literature, the Editorial Board

of Progress in Physics proposes a series of papers dealing

with corrections of the now obsolete, although rather standard,

erroneous arguments contained in The Classical Theory

of Fields.

I believe it went wrong a bit earlier,

That is to say it went wrong in 1895, with this
