Abstract


Einstein and the Development of Physics

Asterios Jannussis
Year: 1997
Keywords: Einstein, Theory of Relativity, Quantum Theory, photoelectric effect, thermal radiation, electrodynamics

The two theories where Einstein has made his greatest contribution are the Theory of Relativity and the Quantum Theory. A remarkable year in the life and scientific development of Einstein is undoubtedly the year 1905, when Einstein in Bern formulated at the same time his theories of the photoelectric effect, Brownian motion and the theory of special relativity (as it came to be known later).

The decisive points in the scientific life of Einstein were the Boltzmann statistical significance of entropy, the Planck theory of thermal radiation and the works of Lorentz on electrodynamics.
