Dear All Listers,

as it is all well known, Einstein largely plagiarised Poincare's "Sur
la dynamique de l?électron" (C. R., 5 juin 1905, p. 1504-1508). It is
less known if the same Poincare's "Sur la généralisation d'un théorème
élémentaire de Géométrie" (C. R., 16 janvier 1905, p. 113-117) was of
"inspiration" for Minkowski's construction of the 4-dimensions
space-time structure. Any idea or comment?
