Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory (PIRT) consortium
Physical Interpretations of Relativity Theory (PIRT) consortium arranges conferences and publishes books to explore the chief characteristics - including the advantages and disadvantages - of the various physical, geometrical, and mathematical interpretations of the formal structure of Relativity Theory, and to examine the philosophical and other questions concerning the various interpretations of the accepted mathematical expression of the Relativity Principle.
The conference is sponsored by the British Society for Philosophy of Science, the Physics Department of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University, the Calcutta Mathematical Society and is sponsored and organised with the assistance and support of the School of Computing and Technology (Prof. Peter Smith), University of Sunderland, Great Britain. Support and assistance was provided particularly with respect to publicity, by the Europhysical Society; the Foundation Louis de Broglie; the London Mathematical Society; the Royal Astronomical Society; The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications; Institute of Physics; British Journal for Philosophy of Science; Foundations of Physics; General Relativity and Gravitation; International Journal of Theoretical Physics; American Institute of Physics.
