After his HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_theory_of_relativity» \o «General

November 1915, Einstein became world-famous, an unusual achievement for
a scientist. In his later years, his fame exceeded that of any other

Einstein himself was deeply concerned with the social impact of
scientific discoveries. His reverence for all creation, his belief in an
«ultimate principle» and the grandeur, beauty, and sublimity of the
universe (the primary source of inspiration in science), his awe for the
scheme that is manifested in the material universe—all of these show
through in his work and philosophy.

Biography

Young Einstein before the Einsteins moved from HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany» \o «Germany» Germany to
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italy» \o «Italy» Italy .

Youth and college

Einstein was born on HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_14»
\o «March 14» March 14 , HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1879» \o «1879» 1879 at HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulm» \o «Ulm» Ulm in HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baden-W%C3%BCrttemberg» \o
«Baden-Wuerttemberg» Baden-Wuerttemberg , HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany» \o «Germany» Germany , about 100
km east of HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuttgart» \o
«Stuttgart» Stuttgart . His parents were Hermann Einstein, a featherbed
salesman who later ran an HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrochemistry» \o «Electrochemistry»
electrochemical works, and Pauline, whose maiden name was Koch. They
were married in Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt. The family was HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jew» \o «Jew» Jewish (non-observant);
Albert attended a HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_school» \o «Catholic school»
Catholic elementary school and, at the insistence of his mother, was
given HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violin» \o «Violin»
violin lessons.

When Albert was five, his father showed him a pocket HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compass» \o «Compass» compass , and
Einstein realized that something in «empty» space acted upon the needle;
he would later describe the experience as one of the most revelatory of
his life. Though he built HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_%28physical%29» \o «Model
(physical)» models and HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine» \o «Machine» mechanical devices
for fun, he was considered a slow learner, possibly due to HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyslexia» \o «Dyslexia» dyslexia , simple
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shyness» \o «Shyness» shyness
, or the significantly rare and unusual structure of his HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_brain» \o «Human brain» brain
(examined after his death). He later credited his development of the
theory of relativity to this slowness, saying that by pondering space
and time later than most children, he was able to apply a more developed
intellect. Some researchers have speculated that Einstein may have
exhibited some traits of mild forms of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autism» \o «Autism» autism , although
they concede that a reliable posthumous diagnosis is impossible.
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein» \l
«endnote_autism» \o «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert
Einstein#endnote autism» [1]

Einstein attended the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luitpold_Gymnasium» \o «Luitpold
Gymnasium» Luitpold Gymnasium where he received a relatively
progressive education. He began to learn HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematics» \o «Mathematics» mathematics
around age twelve. There is a recurring HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rumor» \o «Rumor» rumor that he failed
mathematics later in his education, but this is untrue; a change in the
way grades were assigned caused confusion years later. Two of his uncles
fostered his intellectual interests during his late childhood and early
adolescence by suggesting and providing books on science, mathematics
and HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy» \o
«Philosophy» philosophy .

In 1894, following the failure of Hermann’s electrochemical business,
the Einsteins moved from HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich» \o «Munich» Munich to
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pavia%2C_Italy» \o «Pavia,
Italy» Pavia, Italy (near HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milan» \o «Milan» Milan ). During this
year, Einstein’s first scientific work was written (called «The
Investigation of the State of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aether» \o «Aether» Aether in
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetic_Field» \o «Magnetic
Field» Magnetic Fields «). Albert remained behind in Munich lodgings to
finish school, completing only one term before leaving the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gymnasium_%28school%29» \o «Gymnasium
(school)» gymnasium in spring 1895 to rejoin his family in Pavia. He
quit without telling his parents and a year and a half prior to final
examinations, Einstein convinced the school to let him go with a medical
note from a friendly doctor, but this meant he had no secondary-school
certificate. HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein»
\l «endnote_privatelives1» \o «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert
Einstein#endnote privatelives1» [2]

Despite excelling in the mathematics and science portion, his failure of
the liberal arts portion of the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ETH_Zurich» \o «ETH Zurich»
Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule (ETH, Swiss Federal Institute of
Technology, in HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zurich» \o
«Zurich» Zurich ) entrance exam the following year was a setback; his
family sent him to HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aarau» \o
«Aarau» Aarau , HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switzerland»
\o «Switzerland» Switzerland , to finish secondary school, where he
received his diploma in September 1896. During this time he lodged with
Professor Jost Winteler’s family and became enamoured with Marie, their
daughter, his first sweetheart. Albert’s sister Maja was to later marry
their son Paul, and his friend HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Michele_Besso&action=edit» \o
«Michele Besso» Michele Besso married their other daughter Anna.
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein» \l
«endnote_privatelives2» \o «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert
Einstein#endnote privatelives2» [3] Einstein subsequently enrolled at
the Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule in October and moved to
Zurich, while Marie moved to HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olsberg» \o «Olsberg» Olsberg for a
teaching post. The same year, he renounced his HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C3%BCrttemberg» \o «Wuerttemberg»
Wuerttemberg citizenship and became HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stateless_person» \o «Stateless person»
stateless .

In the spring of 1896, the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbia» \o «Serbia» Serbian HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mileva_Maric» \o «Mileva Maric» Mileva
Mari? started initially as a medical student at the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Zurich» \o «University of
Zurich» University of Zurich , but after a term switched to the same
section as Einstein as the only woman that year to study for the same
diploma. Einstein’s relationship with Mileva developed into romance over
the next few years.

In 1900, he was granted a teaching diploma by the Eidgenoessische
Technische Hochschule ( HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ETH_Zurich» \o «ETH Zurich» ETH Zurich )
and was accepted as a Swiss citizen in 1901. He kept his Swiss passport
for his whole life. During this time Einstein discussed his scientific
interests with a group of close friends, including Mileva. He and Mileva
had an illegitimate daughter HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lieserl_Einstein» \o «Lieserl Einstein»
Lieserl , born in January 1902.

Work and doctorate

Einstein in 1905, when he wrote the » HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annus_Mirabilis_Papers» \o «Annus
Mirabilis Papers» Annus Mirabilis Papers »

Upon graduation, Einstein could not find a teaching post, mostly because
his brashness as a young man had apparently irritated most of his
professors. The father of a classmate helped him obtain employment as a
technical assistant HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patent_clerk» \o «Patent clerk» examiner
at the Swiss Patent Office HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein» \l
«endnote_www.ipi.ch.376» \o «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert
Einstein#endnote www.ipi.ch.376» [4] in 1902. There, Einstein judged
the worth of HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inventor» \o
«Inventor» inventors ‘ HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patent» \o «Patent» patent applications
for devices that required a knowledge of physics to understand — in
particular he was chiefly charged to evaluate patents relating to
electromagnetic devices. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein» \l «endnote_Galison368»
\o «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert Einstein#endnote Galison368»
[5] He also learned how to discern the essence of applications despite
sometimes poor descriptions, and was taught by the director how «to
express [him]self correctly». He occasionally rectified their design
errors while evaluating the practicality of their work.

Einstein married HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mileva_Mari%C4%87» \o «Mileva Mari?»
Mileva Mari? on HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_6» \o
«January 6» January 6 , HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1903»
\o «1903» 1903 . Einstein’s marriage to Mari?, who was a mathematician,
was both a personal and intellectual partnership: Einstein referred to
Mileva as «a creature who is my equal and who is as strong and
independent as I am». HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_W._Clark» \o «Ronald W. Clark»
Ronald W. Clark , a biographer of Einstein, claimed that Einstein
depended on the distance that existed in his and Mileva’s marriage in
order to have the solitude necessary to accomplish his work; he required
intellectual isolation. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abram_Joffe» \o «Abram Joffe» Abram Joffe
, a Soviet physicist who knew Einstein, in an obituary of Einstein,
wrote, «The author of [the papers of 1905] was … a bureaucrat at the
Patent Office in Bern, Einstein-Mari?» and this has recently been taken
as evidence of a collaborative relationship. However, according to
Alberto A. Martinez of the Center for Einstein Studies at Boston
University, Joffe only ascribed authorship to Einstein, as he believed
that it was a Swiss custom at the time to append the spouse’s last name
to the husband’s name. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein» \l
«endnote_physicsweb.org.377» \o «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert
Einstein#endnote physicsweb.org.377» [6] Whatever the truth, the
extent of her influence on Einstein’s work is a highly controversial and
debated question.

On HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_14» \o «May 14» May 14
, HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1904» \o «1904» 1904 , the
couple’s first son, HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Albert_Einstein» \o «Hans Albert
Einstein» Hans Albert Einstein , was born. In 1903, Einstein’s position
at the Swiss Patent Office had been made permanent, though he was passed
over for promotion until he had «fully mastered machine technology».
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein» \l
«endnote_Galison370» \o «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert
Einstein#endnote Galison370» [7] He obtained his HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_of_Philosophy» \o «Doctor of
Philosophy» doctorate after submitting his thesis «A new determination
of molecular dimensions» («Eine neue Bestimmung der
Molekueldimensionen») in 1905.

That same year, he wrote four articles that provided the foundation of
modern physics, without much HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_literature» \o «Scientific
literature» scientific literature to which he could refer or many
scientific colleagues with whom he could discuss the theories. Most
physicists agree that three of those papers (on HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brownian_motion» \o «Brownian motion»
Brownian motion , the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoelectric_effect» \o «Photoelectric
effect» photoelectric effect , and HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_relativity» \o «Special
relativity» special relativity ) deserved HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Prize» \o «Nobel Prize» Nobel
Prizes . Only the paper on the photoelectric effect would be mentioned
by the Nobel committee in the award. This is ironic, not only because
Einstein is far better-known for relativity, but also because the
photoelectric effect is a quantum phenomenon, and Einstein became
somewhat disenchanted with the path HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_mechanics» \o «Quantum mechanics»
quantum theory would take. What makes these papers remarkable is that,
in each case, Einstein boldly took an idea from theoretical physics to
its logical consequences and managed to explain experimental results
that had baffled scientists for decades.

Einstein submitted the series of papers to the «Annalen der Physik».
They are commonly referred to as the » HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annus_Mirabilis_Papers» \o «Annus
Mirabilis Papers» Annus Mirabilis Papers » (from HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Latin_phrases» \o «List of Latin
phrases» Annus mirabilis , HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin» \o «Latin» Latin for ‘year of
wonders’). The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IUPAP» \o «IUPAP» IUPAP ) is
commemorating the 100th year of the publication of Einstein’s extensive
work in 1905 as the ‘ HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Year_of_Physics_2005» \o «World Year
of Physics 2005» World Year of Physics 2005 ‘.

The first paper, named «On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the
Production and Transformation of Light», («Ueber einen die Erzeugung und
Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt»)
proposed that «energy quanta» (which are essentially what we now call
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photon» \o «Photon» photons )
were real, and showed how they could be used to explain such phenomena
as the HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoelectric_effect»
\o «Photoelectric effect» photoelectric effect . This paper was
specifically cited for his Nobel Prize. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Planck» \o «Max Planck» Max Planck
had made the formal assumption that energy was quantized in deriving his
black-body radiation law, published in 1901, but had considered this to
be no more than a mathematical trick.

His second article in 1905, named «On the Motion—Required by the
Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat—of Small Particles Suspended in a
Stationary Liquid», (» HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9Cber_die_von_der_molekularkinetischen

molekularkinetischen Theorie der Waerme geforderte Ueber die von der

ruhenden Fluessigkeiten suspendierten Teilchen «) covered his study of
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brownian_motion» \o «Brownian
motion» Brownian motion , and provided empirical evidence for the
existence of atoms. Before this paper, HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom» \o «Atom» atoms were recognized as
a useful concept, but HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physicist» \o «Physicist» physicists and
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemist» \o «Chemist»
chemists hotly debated whether atoms were real entities. Einstein’s
statistical discussion of atomic behavior gave HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experimentalist» \o «Experimentalist»
experimentalists a way to count atoms by looking through an ordinary
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microscope» \o «Microscope»
microscope . HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_Ostwald»
\o «Wilhelm Ostwald» Wilhelm Ostwald , one of the leaders of the
anti-atom school, later told HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold_Sommerfeld» \o «Arnold Sommerfeld»
Arnold Sommerfeld that he had been converted to a belief in atoms by
Einstein’s complete explanation of Brownian motion.

Einstein’s third paper that year, «On the Electrodynamics of Moving
Bodies» («Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Koerper»), was published in
September 1905. This paper introduced the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_relativity» \o «Special
relativity» special theory of relativity , a theory of time, distance,
mass and energy which was consistent with HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetism» \o «Electromagnetism»
electromagnetism , but omitted the force of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity» \o «Gravity» gravity . While
developing this paper, Einstein wrote to Mileva about «our work on
relative motion», and this has led some to ask whether Mileva played a
part in its development.

A fourth paper, «Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy
Content?», («Ist die Traegheit eines Koerpers von seinem Energieinhalt
abhaengig?») published late in 1905, showed one further deduction from
relativity’s HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axiom» \o «Axiom»
axioms , the famous equation that the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy» \o «Energy» energy of a body at
rest (E) equals its mass (m) times the speed of light (c) squared:
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E%3Dmc%C2%B2» \o «E=mc?»
E = mc2 .

In 1906, Einstein was promoted to technical examiner second class. In
1908, Einstein was licensed in HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bern» \o «Bern» Bern , Switzerland, as a
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privatdozent» \o «Privatdozent»

the HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Zurich» \o
«University of Zurich» University of Zurich , and shortly afterwards
full professor at the (German) HYPERLINK

HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zurich» \o «Zurich» Zurich in
order to become full professor at the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ETH_Zurich» \o «ETH Zurich» ETH Zurich .
At that time, he worked closely with the HYPERLINK

mathematician HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marcel_Grossmann» \o «Marcel Grossmann»
Marcel Grossmann . In 1912, Einstein started to refer to HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time» \o «Time» time as the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_dimension» \o «Fourth dimension»
fourth dimension (although HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.G._Wells» \o «H.G. Wells» H.G. Wells
had done this earlier, in 1895 in HYPERLINK

In 1914, just before the start of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I» \o «World War I» World War I

\o «Berlin» Berlin as professor at the local HYPERLINK

«http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Prussian_Academy_of_Sciences&

Sciences . He took German citizenship. His HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacifism» \o «Pacifism» pacifism and
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jew» \o «Jew» Jewish origins
irritated German nationalists. After he became world-famous,
nationalistic hatred of him grew and for the first time he was the
subject of an organized campaign to discredit his theories. From 1914 to
1933, he served as director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics
in Berlin, and it was during this time that he was awarded his
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Prize» \o «Nobel Prize»
Nobel Prize and made his most groundbreaking discoveries. He was also
an extraordinary professor at the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leiden_University» \o «Leiden University»
Leiden University from 1920 until officially 1946, where he regularly
gave guest lectures.

Einstein divorced Mileva on HYPERLINK

three years older than Albert, and had nursed him to health after he had
suffered a partial nervous breakdown combined with a severe stomach
ailment; there were no children from this marriage. The fate of Albert
and Mileva’s first child, Lieserl, is unknown. Some believe she died in
infancy, while others believe she was given out for adoption. They later
had two sons: Eduard and Hans Albert. Eduard intended to practice as a

General relativity

In November 1915, Einstein presented a series of lectures before the
Prussian Academy of Sciences in which he described his theory of
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_relativity» \o «General
relativity» general relativity . The final lecture climaxed with his
introduction of an equation that replaced Newton’s law of gravity. This
theory considered all observers to be equivalent, not only those moving
at a uniform speed. In general relativity, gravity is no longer a force
(as it is in Newton’s law of gravity) but is a consequence of the
curvature of HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space-time» \o
«Space-time» space-time .

The theory provided the foundation for the study of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_cosmology» \o «Physical
cosmology» cosmology and gave scientists the tools for understanding
many features of the universe that were discovered well after Einstein’s
death. A truly revolutionary theory, general relativity has so far
passed every test posed to it and has become a powerful tool used in the
analysis of many subjects in physics.

Initially, scientists were skeptical because the theory was derived by
mathematical reasoning and rational analysis, not by experiment or
observation. But in 1919, predictions made using the theory were
confirmed by HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Stanley_Eddington» \o «Arthur
Stanley Eddington» Arthur Eddington ‘s measurements (during a

observations were carried out on HYPERLINK

November 7 , HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Times» \o
«The Times» The Times reported the confirmation, cementing Einstein’s
fame.

Many scientists were still unconvinced for various reasons ranging from
disagreement with Einstein’s interpretation of the experiments, to not
being able to tolerate the absence of an absolute frame of reference. In
Einstein’s view, many of them simply could not understand the
mathematics involved. Einstein’s public fame which followed the 1919
article created resentment among these scientists some of which lasted
well into the 1930s.

In the early 1920s Einstein was the lead figure in a famous weekly
physics colloquium at the University of Berlin. On HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_30» \o «March 30» March 30 ,
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1921» \o «1921» 1921 , Einstein
went to HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City» \o «New
York City» New York to give a lecture on his new Theory of Relativity,
the same year he was awarded the Nobel Prize. Though he is now most
famous for his work on relativity, it was for his earlier work on the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoelectric_effect» \o
«Photoelectric effect» photoelectric effect that he was given the
Prize, as his work on general relativity was still disputed. The Nobel
committee decided that citing his less-contested theory in the Prize
would gain more acceptance from the scientific community.

The «Copenhagen» interpretation

Einstein and HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niels_Bohr» \o
«Niels Bohr» Niels Bohr sparred over HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_theory» \o «Quantum theory»
quantum theory during the 1920s.

Einstein’s relationship with HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_physics» \o «Quantum physics»
quantum physics was quite remarkable. He was the first to say that
quantum theory was revolutionary. His postulation that light can be
described not only as a wave with no kinetic energy, but also as
massless discrete packets of energy called quanta with measurable
kinetic energy (now known as photons) marked a landmark break with the
classical physics. In 1909 Einstein presented his first paper on the
quantification of light to a gathering of physicists and told them that
they must find some way to understand waves and particles together.

In the mid-1920s, as the original quantum theory was replaced with a new
theory of HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_mechanics»
\o «Quantum mechanics» quantum mechanics , Einstein balked at the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copenhagen_interpretation» \o
«Copenhagen interpretation» Copenhagen interpretation of the new
equations because it settled for a probabilistic, non-visualizable
account of physical behaviour. Einstein agreed that the theory was the
best available, but he looked for a more «complete» explanation, i.e.,
more HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_determinism»
\o «Scientific determinism» deterministic . He could not abandon the
belief that physics described the laws that govern «real things», the
belief which had led to his successes with atoms, photons, and gravity.

In a 1926 letter to HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Born»
\o «Max Born» Max Born , Einstein made a remark that is now famous:

Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me it
is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really
bring us any closer to the secret of the Old One. I, at any rate, am
convinced that He does not throw dice.

To this, HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niels_Bohr» \o «Niels
Bohr» Bohr , who sparred with Einstein on quantum theory, retorted,
«Stop telling God what He must do!» The HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohr-Einstein_debates» \o «Bohr-Einstein
debates» Bohr-Einstein debates on foundational aspects of quantum
mechanics happened during the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solvay_Conference» \o «Solvay Conference»
Solvay conferences .

Einstein was not rejecting probabilistic theories per se. Einstein
himself was a great statistician, using statistical analysis in his
works on Brownian motion and photoelectricity and in papers published
before the miraculous year 1905; Einstein had even discovered
HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gibbs_ensemble&action=edit»
\o «Gibbs ensemble» Gibbs ensembles . He believed, however, that at the
core reality behaved HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_determinism» \o «Scientific
determinism» deterministically . Many physicists argue that
experimental evidence contradicting this belief was found much later
with the discovery of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell%27s_Theorem» \o «Bell’s Theorem»
Bell’s Theorem and HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell%27s_inequality» \o «Bell’s

lively discussions about the HYPERLINK

mechanics .

Bose-Einstein statistics

In 1924, Einstein received a short paper from a young HYPERLINK

German (then the HYPERLINK

World War II

After HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler» \o «Adolf

of creating «Jewish physics» in contrast with HYPERLINK

blacklist politically those German physicists who taught them (such as
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werner_Heisenberg» \o «Werner

citizenship and fled to the HYPERLINK

political views .

Institute for Advanced Study

His work at the Institute for Advanced Study focused on the unification
of the HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_law» \o
«Physical law» laws of physics , which he referred to as the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_unification_theory» \o
«Grand unification theory» Unified Field Theory . He attempted to
construct a model which would describe all of the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fundamental_forces» \o «Fundamental
forces» fundamental forces as different manifestations of a single
force. His attempt was hindered because the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strong_interaction» \o «Strong
interaction» strong and HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weak_nuclear_force» \o «Weak nuclear
force» weak nuclear forces were not understood independently until
around 1970, fifteen years after Einstein’s death. Einstein’s goal of
unifying the laws of physics under a single model survives in the
current drive for unification of the forces, embodied most notably by
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_theory» \o «String
theory» string theory .

Generalized theory

Einstein began to form a HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generalized_theory_of_gravitation» \o
«Generalized theory of gravitation» generalized theory of gravitation
with the Universal Law of Gravitation and the electromagnetic force in
his first attempt to demonstrate the unification and simplification of
the fundamental forces. In 1950 he described his work in a HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_American» \o «Scientific
American» Scientific American article. Einstein was guided by a belief
in a single statistical measure of variance for the entire set of
physical laws.

Einstein’s Generalized Theory of Gravitation is a universal mathematical
approach to field theory. He investigated reducing the different
phenomena by the process of logic to something already known or evident.
Einstein tried to unify gravity and electromagnetism in a way that also
led to a new subtle understanding of quantum mechanics.

Einstein postulated a four-dimensional space-time continuum expressed in
axioms represented by five component vectors. Particles appear in his
research as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the
energy density are particularly high. Einstein treated subatomic
particles as objects embedded in the unified field, influencing it and
existing as an essential constituent of the unified field but not of it.
Einstein also investigated a natural generalization of symmetrical
tensor fields, treating the combination of two parts of the field as
being a natural procedure of the total field and not the symmetrical and
antisymmetrical parts separately. He researched a way to delineate the
equations and systems to be derived from a HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variational_principle» \o «Variational
principle» variational principle .

Einstein became increasingly isolated in his research on a generalised
theory of gravitation and was ultimately unsuccessful in his attempts.

and imagery of movement. Einstein’s brain also contained 73% more

Personality

Albert Einstein was much respected for his kind and friendly demeanor
rooted in his HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacifism» \o
«Pacifism» pacifism . He was modest about his abilities, and had
distinctive attitudes and fashions—for example, he minimized his
wardrobe so that he would not need to waste time in deciding on what to
wear. He occasionally had a playful sense of humor, and enjoyed
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailing» \o «Sailing» sailing
and playing the HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violin» \o
«Violin» violin . He was also the stereotypical » HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absent-minded_professor» \o «Absent-minded
professor» absent-minded professor «; he was often forgetful of
everyday items, such as keys, and would focus so intently on solving
physics problems that he would often become oblivious to his
surroundings. In his later years, his appearance inadvertently created
(or reflected) another stereotype of scientist in the process: the
researcher with unruly white hair.

Religious views

Although he was raised HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish»
\o «Jewish» Jewish , he was not a believer in the religious aspect of
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judaism» \o «Judaism» Judaism ,
though he still considered himself a Jew. He simply admired the beauty
of nature and the universe. From a letter written in HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_language» \o «English language»
English , dated HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_24» \o
«March 24» March 24 , HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1954»
\o «1954» 1954 , Einstein wrote, «It was, of course, a lie what you
read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically
repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied
this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be
called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure
of the world so far as our science can reveal it.»

He also said (in an essay reprinted in Living Philosophies, vol. 13
(1931)): «A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate,
our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty,
which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds—it
is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity; in
this sense, and this [sense] alone, I am a deeply religious man.»

human beings.» After being pressed on his religious views by HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Buber» \o «Martin Buber» Martin
Buber , Einstein exclaimed, «What we [physicists] strive for is just to
draw His lines after Him.» He also quoted once «When I read the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhagavad_Gita» \o «Bhagavad
Gita» Bhagavad Gita , I ask myself how God created the universe.
Everything else seems superfluous.» Summarizing his religious beliefs,
he once said: «My religion consists of a humble admiration of the
illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we
are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.»

«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McCarthyism» \o «McCarthyism» McCarthyism
and HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism» \o «Racism»
racism , were controversial (see HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Einstein_on_socialism» \o «Einstein on
socialism» Einstein on socialism ). In a 1949 article, Albert Einstein
described the «predatory phase of human development», exemplified by a
chaotic HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitalism» \o
«Capitalism» capitalist society, as a source of evil to be overcome.
He disapproved of the HYPERLINK

totalitarian regimes in the HYPERLINK

socialist system which would combine a planned economy with a deep
respect for human rights. Einstein was a co-founder of the liberal

Einstein was very much involved in the Civil Rights movement. He was a
close friend of HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Robeson»
\o «Paul Robeson» Paul Robeson for over 20 years. Einstein was a
member of several civil rights groups (including the Princeton chapter
of the HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NAACP» \o «NAACP»
NAACP ) many of which were headed by Paul Robeson. He served as co-chair
with HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Robeson» \o «Paul
Robeson» Paul Robeson of the American Crusade to End Lynching. When
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W.E.B._DuBois» \o «W.E.B.
DuBois» W.E.B. DuBois was frivolously charged with being a communist
spy during the McCarthy era while he was in his 80s, Einstein
volunteered as a character witness in the case. The case was dismissed
shortly after it was announced that he was to appear in that capacity.
Einstein was quoted as saying that «racism is America’s greatest
disease».

The U.S. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Bureau_of_Investigation» \o
«Federal Bureau of Investigation» FBI kept a 1,427 page file on his
activities and recommended that he be barred from immigrating to the

Einstein «believes in, advises, advocates, or teaches a doctrine which,
in a legal sense, as held by the courts in other cases, ‘would allow
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchy_%28word%29» \o «Anarchy

civilian political groups, and not actually written by FBI officials.

In 1939, Einstein signed a letter, written by HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le%C3%B3_Szil%C3%A1rd» \o «Leo Szilard»

start funding research into the development of HYPERLINK

Einstein opposed tyrannical forms of government, and for this reason
(and his Jewish background), opposed the Nazi regime and fled Germany
shortly after it came to power. At the same time, Einstein’s HYPERLINK

Hebrew University in HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem» \o «Jerusalem» Jerusalem ,
which published (1930) a volume titled About Zionism: Speeches and
Lectures by Professor Albert Einstein, and to which Einstein bequeathed
his papers. However, he opposed nationalism and expressed skepticism
about whether a Jewish nation-state was the best solution. He may have
imagined Jews and Arabs living peacefully in the same land. In later
life, in 1952, he was offered the post of second president of the newly
created state of HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel» \o
«Israel» Israel , but declined the offer, claiming that he lacked the
necessary people skills. Einstein was disturbed by the violence taking
place in the Palestine after the Second World War and expressed that he
was disappointed with the Jewish Ultra-Nationalist Organization (
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irgun» \o «Irgun» Irgun and
Stern Gang). Nonetheless, Einstein remained deeply committed to the
welfare of Israel and the Jewish people for the rest of his life.

«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Schweitzer» \o «Albert Schweitzer»
Albert Schweitzer and HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand_Russell» \o «Bertrand Russell»
