Die Forschungsgruppe G.O. Mueller referiert stichworthaltig in ihrer Dokumentation Über die absolute Größe der Speziellen Relativitätstheorie (Textversion 2.1 – Juni 2004) diese Arbeit von Ludwik Silbertein:
 

Der Text (11 Zeilen) besteht nur aus der Zusammenfassung eines Beitrags: 

The „aether theory“ alluded to in the title of the paper is that based upon a modified compressible aether of Stokes-Planck, a first sketch of which was given in the Philosophical Magazine for February, 1920. The possibilities offered by such an aether theory, as contrasted with Einstein’s generalized theory of relativity and gravitation, were now further investigated and discussed in some detail, chiefly in relation to (1) the bending of rays around heavy masses (such as the sun), (2) the dynamics of planetary motion, and (3) the optical and mechanical aspects of the diurnal rotation of the earth. Lastly, some difficulties or, at least, gaps in Einstein’s theory of the relativity of rotational motion in general were pointed out.“ .
