Any one interested in the relation between Einstein and Poincaré
should have a look at Olivier Darrigol’s recent, concise paper
on this issue: "The Mistery of the Einstein-Poincaré Connection",
Isis, 95 (2004): 614-626. As the journal is widely available and
the paper is full of insights, I will not attempt to summarize it.
