  • Alfred Arthur Robb ou Alfred A. Robb FRS (18 janvier 1873 à Belfast - 14 décembre 1936 dans le district de Castlereagh, Irlande du Nord) est un physicien britannique. Il a mis au point une axiomatisation géométrique de la théorie de la relativité restreinte.
  • Alfred Arthur Robb, também conhecido como Alfred A. Robb FRS (Belfast, 18 de janeiro de 1873 — Castlereagh, 14 de dezembro de 1936) foi um físico britânico.Robb estudou na Queen's University of Belfast e no St John's College (Cambridge). Foi em seguida para a Universidade de Göttingen, onde obteve um doutorado com uma tese sobre o efeito Zeeman, orientado por Woldemar Voigt. Também trabalhou sob a supervisão de Joseph John Thomson no Laboratório Cavendish. Recebeu a Croix de Guerre, e em 1921 tornou-se fellow da Royal Society.É conhecido por suas quatro publicações sobre a relatividade especial (1911, 1914, 1921, 1936), desenvolvendo o formalismo espaço-tempo da teoria de uma forma geométrico-axiomática. Robb foi por isto algumas vezes referenciado como o "Euclides da relatividade".
  • Alfred Arthur Robb oder Alfred A. Robb (* 18. Januar 1873 in Belfast; † 14. Dezember 1936 in Castlereagh) war ein englischer Physiker.Robb studierte am Queen's College in Belfast, am St John’s College in Cambridge, und kurzfristig auch an der Universität Göttingen, wo er von Woldemar Voigt beeinflusst wurde. Danach war er bei Joseph John Thomson am Cavendish-Laboratorium beschäftigt. Er wurde mit dem Croix de Guerre ausgezeichnet und 1921 wurde er Mitglied der Royal Society.Bekannt wurde er durch seine Arbeiten über die Spezielle Relativitätstheorie, wobei er versuchte (1911, 1914), den gesamte Raumzeit-Formalismus der Theorie auf axiomatisch-geometrischem Wege abzuleiten. Robb wurde deswegen auch der "Euklid der Relativität" genannt. Robb führte dabei unter Benutzung der Nichteuklidischen Geometrie Begriffe wie Rapidität als formale Alternative zur relativistischen Geschwindigkeitsaddition ein.Er selbst glaubte jedoch entgegen der allgemeinen Auffassung, dass die Arbeiten von Joseph Larmor und Hendrik Antoon Lorentz wichtiger für die Relativitätstheorie waren als die Arbeiten von Albert Einstein und Hermann Minkowski.

He then proceeded to University of Göttingen, where guided by Woldemar Voigt, he wrote his dissertation on the Zeeman effect. He also worked under J. J. Thomson at the Cavendish Laboratory. The Croix de Guerre was awarded to him, and in 1921 he became a fellow of the Royal Society. He is known for his four works on special relativity (1911, 1914, 1921, 1936) where he derived a spacetime formalism of the theory in an axiomatic-geometric way. Robb therefore was sometimes called the "Euclid of relativity". In the first of these works he used a hyperbolic angle to introduce the concept of rapidity which clarified the relativistic velocity-addition formula.He also showed that the kinematic space of velocities is hyperbolic, that is, that "instead of a Euclidean triangle of velocities, we get a Lobachevski triangle of rapidities".However, contrary to the scientific mainstream, he believed that the works of Joseph Larmor and Hendrik Lorentz were more important for relativity than the works of Albert Einstein and Hermann Minkowski.
