Who is Einstein?
Einstein is a well known genius scientist.
Albert Einstein (March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born famous scientist, physicist and mathematician. He was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany. He is best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed as "the world's most famous equation". He received Nobel Prize in Physics in the year 1921, "for his services to theoretical physics, for discovering of the law of the photoelectric effect". He also is well-known for his deep study and research in quantum mechanics.
Albert Einstein was the son of Hermann Einstein and Pauline Einstein. His father was a salesman and an engineer. His father along with his uncle founded the company named Elektrotechnische Fabrik J. Einstein & Cie in 1880 that manufactured electrical equipment based on direct current. The Einstein’s were non-observant Jews. He did his schooling from Italy and Switzerland. He moved back to Germany after completing the graduation. He afterwards worked in a patent office, and then later became a professor. After World War II, Einstein was a leading figure in the World Government Movement. He was offered the Presidency of the State of Israel, which he declined, and collaborated with Dr. Chaim Weizmann for establishing the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Einstein always had a clear view for solving the physics problems. He had a strategy of his own and was able to visualize the main stages on the way to his goal.
Some of Einstein's important researches and works include:
- Special Theory of Relativity (1905)
- Relativity (English translations, 1920 and 1950)
- General Theory of Relativity (1916)
- Investigations on Theory of Brownian Movement (1926)
- The Evolution of Physics (1938)
Among his non-scientific works, the most important were:
- About Zionism (1930)
- Why War? (1933)
- My Philosophy (1934)
- Out of My Later Years (1950)
