    1. Albert Einstein Leopold Infeld

      In 1879, Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany He completed his Ph.D at the University of Zurich by 1909 His 1905 paper explaining the photoelectric effect, the basis of electronics, earned him the Nobel Prize in 1921 His first paper on Special Relativity Theory, also published in 1905, changed the world After the rise of the Nazi party, Einstein made Princeton his permanent home, becoming a U.S citizen in 1940 Einstein, a pacifist during World War I, stayed a firm proponent of social justice and responsibility He chaired the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, which organized to alert the public to the dangers of atomic warfare.At a symposium, he advised In their struggle for the ethical good, teachers of religion must have the stature to give up the doctrine of a personal God, that is, give up that source of fear and hope which in the past placed such vast power in the hands of priests In their labors they will have to avail themselves of those forces which are capable of cultivating the Good, the True, and the Beautiful in humanity itself This is, to be sure a difficult but an incomparably worthy task Science, Philosophy and Religion, A Symposium, published by the Conference on Science, Philosophy and Religion in their Relation to the Democratic Way of Life, Inc New York, 1941 In a letter to philosopher Eric Gutkind, dated Jan 3, 1954, Einstein stated The word god is for me nothing than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish No interpretation no matter how subtle can for me change this, The Guardian, Childish superstition Einstein s letter makes view of religion relatively clear, by James Randerson, May 13, 2008 D 1955.While best known for his mass energy equivalence formula E mc2 which has been dubbed the world s most famous equation , he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory.Einstein thought that Newtonion mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field This led to the development of his special theory of relativity He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on the general theory of relativity He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light.He was visiting the United States when Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933 and did not go back to Germany On the eve of World War II, he endorsed a letter to President Franklin D Roosevelt alerting him to the potential development of extremely powerful bombs of a new type and recommending that the U.S begin similar research This eventually led to what would become the Manhattan Project Einstein supported defending the Allied forces, but largely denounced the idea of using the newly discovered nuclear fission as a weapon Later, with Bertrand Russell, Einstein signed the Russell Einstein Manifesto, which highlighted the danger of nuclear weapons Einstein was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, until his death in 1955.His great intellectual achievements and originality have made the word Einstein synonymous with genius.More enpedia wiki Albert_Ebelprize nobel_prize

    1. I really enjoyed the explanations given in this book The author is Einstien but the writing is Infeld He worked very closely with Einstien.They begin with basic mechanics and work their way through field physics, special and general relativity and then finally to quantum mechanics All of this is done without mathematic equations It is all explained through analogies, theories and explanation or real world experiments It is a very interesting read if for no other reason than to see the developmen [...]


    2. This book is so polite Written in 1938, apparently by Infeld than by Einstein, it is exceedingly proper and therefore delightful, as well as thorough It is a beautiful book, very clear and precise, and should be read by all armchair physicists with a serious hankering to understand relativity theory, as well as the importance of the quantum theory.

    4. Einstein has a reputation not only as a physicist, but as a humanitarian The clarity and style of this book reinforces the reputation.Slowly, carefully and with great concern that the reader not be left behind, Einstein and his co author tell what could be a bewildering tale by demonstrating how the science of the physical relationship of things evolved.It did so for the reason that all science evolves questions, in being answered, pose further questions The pursuit of the unknown, with the nece [...]


    5. Interesting book Most of it was written by Leopold Infeld who was a colleague of Einstein and a fellow refugee from Europe Infeld could not get a permanent appointment at Princeton due to a bitter rivalry within the Physics department so he came up with the idea of writing a popular, non mathematical monograph explaining the history of physics Einstein readily agreed and this allowed Infeld to obtain a secure source of funding Einstein s name appears first only because his was the better known o [...]



    6. Absolutely awesome In my mind, this book is about psychology or cognition rather than physics I love books whose plots are connected by logic rather than irrelevant story telling More precisely, this book is about how human create knowledge and the nature of reality There is in fact no force, no field, no charge All we have is motion, along with, at best, the tendency of motion The scientific concepts are artificially created to, and only to, classify unrelated events that only make sense to yo [...]


    7. This book is a pretty good explanation of the history of physics, from Galileo to quantum theory It is set out in a fairly comprehensible manner, and there are a lot of analogies used This isn t going to help you much with exams but it s a great way to get your head round the overall structure of physics.


    8. I first picked this book up thinking that it would provide a broad overview of the entire history of Physics I really wanted Einstein s take on Aristotle, Lucretius and maybe even the pre Socratics in a sweeping history of scientific thought On this account, I was sorely disappointed Einstein summarily dismisses all physics prior to Galileo, and I almost summarily dismissed the book as a result It sat on my shelf for about two years until I recently picked it up thinking I needed a new way of se [...]



    9. An accessible, straightforward journey through the rise and fall of various theories at the heart of physics, from Newton s time to the early 20th century era of Einstein and Infeld Although rise and fall is not quite accurate the authors stress that new theories tend to broaden the scope of the old theories rather than upending them entirely Thus, for example, today we freely make use of Newtonian mechanics when dealing with non relativistic speeds, or use Maxwell s equations when the electroma [...]


    10. This book offers two things 1 A summary of physics, from classical mechanics, to field theory, general relativity and quantum theory as it was understood in 1938 when the book was first published The presentation is oriented towards laymen and avoids using any mathematical formulas The explanations of the basic ideas of physics are marvelously clear and straightforward However, the self imposed strict avoidance of math, although probably appealing to the wide audience, sometimes resulted in vagu [...]

    13. Einstein, through this book, unfolds the intricated lines of ideas that forged what is today s physics understanding It gives a rather clear insight of why people put their faith and reason in some theories, and casted shadows of disapprovement on others But the most interesting in my opinion is to learn about the tipping points before each thought revolution Those periods were highly tensed from the intellectual point of view They reflect how difficult it can be for new and counterintuitive id [...]



    14. La dimostrazione di come non sia necessario utilizzare un linguaggio complesso e autoreferenziale per esporre argomenti complessi, e di come basti poco per far comprendere a chiunque concetti fisici alla base della Scienza moderna Fondamentale per chiunque sia interessato all argomento, adatto sia ai profani che agli addetti ai lavori Un ottima lettura consigliatami da un altrettanto ottimo insegnante di Fisica del quale conservo uno splendido ricordo Ce ne fossero di pi di docenti universitari [...]


    15. Este um livro realmente importante na f sica do s culo XX Einstein explica claramente onde a relatividade se coloca diante do corpo de conhecimentos anteriores da f sica Pessoalmente foi uma leitura marcante Li pela primeira vez aos 15 anos e muitas vezes depois J dei o livro de presente para muitas pessoas A clareza das explica es, a l gica, a simplicidade s o o meu modelo de f sica bem contada.


    16. Me encanto, la forma de explicar conceptos un tanto complicados de una manera mas sencilla Los ejemplos que se plasman son muy digeribles, y ah creo, que se halla la magia de este libro Recomendado para aquellos que, desean profundizar en temas de f sica, desde la mec nica cl sica hasta la teor a de la relatividad, adentr ndose un poco mas en en el din mico mundo de la f sica cu ntica.


    17. The path Einstein takes the reader down as he describes our world in ever detail, starting with Galileo and Newton and ending with Bohr and Heisenberg, is an amazing journey eloquently relayed in plain understandable language.In my opinion, modern textbook authors could be much effective if they followed his example.


    18. I once read a book of essays by Einstein and the writing was horrible to follow I have heard similar stories about Einstein s book on relativity The book, on the other hand, was a joy to read No doubt this is due to Einstein s co author.


    19. The second generation of physics Relativity, Special Relativity and Quantum theory explained by the genus himself A classic in the annuals of scientific literature Must read for all who love pure science and the theory behind how our universe works.




    20. This is so far the most legible introduction explanation of the development of physical theories I have read so far The vocabulary is considerably simple and the illustrations are clear enough to make the basic concepts approachable for someone with no formal studies in the area like me The book has no mathematical explanations, and Einstein says that in doing so he is sacrificing precision, and this is surely true, however the point of the book is not to present a precise understanding of physi [...]



    21. A novice or a layman would marvel the book for its simplicity in the presentation of the complicated physical phenomenon This book is definitely a masterpiece for a beginner who is learning physics As Einstein himself followed the science of deduction so has he approaced the same in the presentation of the physical facts in this book You will see a glimpse of it as you read through this book The book would turn out to be not so gripping if you re already familiar with some of the physical facts [...]
