Why Is Luther P. Eisenhart Influential?

(Suggest an Edit or Addition)

According to Wikipedia, Luther Pfahler Eisenhart was an American mathematician, best known today for his contributions to semi-Riemannian geometry. Life Eisenhart was born in York, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Gettysburg College in 1896. He earned his doctorate in 1900 at Johns Hopkins University, where he was influenced by the work of Gaston Darboux and at shorter range by that of Thomas Craig. During the next two decades, Eisenhart's research focused on moving frames after the French school, but around 1921 took a different turn when he became enamored of the mathematical challenges and entrancing beauty of a new theory of gravitation, Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity.
