Einstein recently published (1) some calculations concerning a suggestion made by R. W. Mandl, namely, that a star B may act as a "gravitational lens" for light coming from another star A which lies closely enough on the line of sight behind B. As Einstein remarks the chance to observe this effect for stars is extremely small.
