    Hello Unreg,

    1. the creator's empirical knowledge
    2. the empirical knowledge of the creator
    3. creators' empirical knowledge
    4. the empirical knowledge of creators

    In the case of one creator, versions #1 and #2 are correct.

    In the case of more than one creator, versions #3 and #4 are correct.

    (Therefore much depends on the context!)

    Best wishes,

    MrP
