Roosevelt advocated such research. and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory. In 1917. that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields.[6] . Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. and recommended that the U.

"The Investigation of the State of Aether in Magnetic Fields". his father's company failed: direct current (DC) lost the War of Currents to alternating current (AC). Einstein studied Maxwell's electromagnetic theory. a few months later. Switzerland.[11] As he grew. he fell in love with the family's daughter. despite the apparent "empty space".[15] Einstein applied directly to the Eidgenössische Polytechnische Schule (ETH) in Zürich. to Pavia. When the family moved to Pavia. The Einsteins were non-observant Jews.[9] [10] His father once showed him a pocket compass. Their son attended a Catholic elementary school from the age of five until ten.[16] The Einsteins sent Albert to Aarau. where his father and his uncle founded Elektrotechnische Fabrik J. His mother was Pauline Einstein (née Koch).[13] [14] Albert Einstein in 1893 (age 14). The Jewish community arranged for Talmud to take meals with the Einsteins each week on Thursdays for six years. Einstein realized that there must be something causing the needle to move. including Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and Euclid's Elements (which Einstein called the "holy little geometry book"). In 1894.[12] Talmud was a poor Jewish medical student from Poland. In 1880. Max Talmud (later changed to Max Talmey) introduced the ten-year old Einstein to key texts in science. In the spring of 1895. Lacking the requisite Matura certificate. Einstein & Cie.[7] During this time. he took an entrance examination. During this time Talmud wholeheartedly guided Einstein through many secular educational interests. Marie.[7] His father was Hermann Einstein. Einstein stayed in Munich to finish his studies at the Luitpold Gymnasium. although he got exceptional marks in mathematics and physics. Einstein built models and mechanical devices for fun and began to show a talent for mathematics. renounced his citizenship in the German Kingdom of . the Einstein family moved to Italy.)[17] In Aarau. he graduated. he withdrew to join his family in Pavia. with his father's approval.

intelligent. as if he were a head of state rather than a theoretical physicist". He became a full professor at Karl-Ferdinand University in Prague in 1911. His first lecture in Tokyo lasted four hours. Sir Herbert Samuel. he returned to Germany after being appointed director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics (1914–1932)[34] and a professor at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Travels abroad Einstein visited New York City for the first time on 2 April 1921. During one reception given to him. with consistent explanations that apply in all instances and avoid contradicting each other.[35] [36] In 1911. light from another star would be bent by the Sun's gravity. The following year. Einstein was awarded a PhD by the University of Zurich. Einstein later gave his impressions of the Japanese in a letter to his sons:[39] :307 Of all the people I have met. although with a special clause in his contract that freed him from most teaching obligations. On 7 November 1919. and that is the forgetfulness of its own people. and the equivalence of matter and energy. on the photoelectric effect. Because relativity was still considered somewhat controversial. His dissertation was entitled "A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions".[39] :308 On his return voyage. as they are modest. which has been called Einstein's annus mirabilis or "miracle year". he also visited Palestine for twelve days in what would become his only visit to that region. and have a feel for art. where he gave a series of lectures to thousands of Japanese. he completed his thesis. In 1916. Before. and Japan. 1919.[31] On 30 April 1905.[40] :308 . he traveled throughout Asia and later to Palestine. I like the Japanese most. and he was appointed lecturer at the University of Berne.(Einstein 1954)[38] In 1922. When asked where he got his scientific ideas. I have always found something to regret in the Jewish soul.Albert Einstein 6 Academic career In 1901. it was officially bestowed for his explanation of the photoelectric effect. questions were raised whether the measurements were accurate enough to support Einstein's theory. the leading British newspaper The Times printed a banner headline that read: "Revolution in Science – New Theory of the Universe – Newtonian Ideas Overthrown". International media reports of this made Einstein world famous. He also recommended theories with visualizable results. In 1914. He became a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences. writes Isaacson. Einstein explained that he believed scientific work best proceeds from an examination of physical reality and a search for underlying axioms. Einstein had a paper on the capillary forces of a straw published in the prestigious Annalen der Physik. he quit the patent office and the lectureship to take the position of physics docent[33] at the University of Zurich. which were to bring him to the notice of the academic world. serving as pro-forma advisor.[32] That same year. he expressed his happiness over the event: I consider this the greatest day of my life. after which he met the emperor and empress at the Imperial Palace where thousands came to watch. Ceylon. the building was "stormed by throngs who wanted to hear him". "He was greeted with great British pomp. special relativity. He also received the Copley Medal from the Royal Society in 1925. Professor of Experimental Physics. Brownian motion. Today. Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.[37] (Much later. Einstein was appointed president of the German Physical Society (1916–1918). considerate. he had calculated that. I have been made happy by the sight of the Jewish people learning to recognize themselves and to make themselves recognized as a force in the world. he was recognized as a leading scientist. His travels included Singapore. as part of a six-month excursion and speaking tour.) In 1921. with Alfred Kleiner. he published four groundbreaking papers. By 1908. based on his new theory of general relativity. In Einstein's talk to the audience. This included a cannon salute upon his arrival at the residence of the British high commissioner. That prediction was claimed confirmed by observations made by a British expedition led by Sir Arthur Eddington during the solar eclipse of May 29.

The letter. eventually getting a personal envoy into the Oval Office. the Nazi book burnings occurred.G. "In my whole life I have never felt so Jewish as now. Victor Weisskopf. Einstein was compelled to immigrate to the United States due to the rise to power of the Nazis under Germany's new chancellor."[40] He took up a position at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. Einstein was persuaded to write a letter to President Franklin D. many of whom made certain that the Allies would develop nuclear weapons first. He then describes how quickly Roosevelt changed his mind: "Albert Einstein interceded through the Belgian queen mother. another Institute member. and other refugees including Edward Teller and Eugene Wigner. "For me the most beautiful thing is to be in contact with a few fine Jews—a few millennia of a civilized past do mean something after all. [43] an affiliation that lasted until his death in 1955. World War II and the Manhattan Project In the summer of 1939. Among the other scientists who left Germany. His last assistant was Bruria Kaufman. It was the birth of the Manhattan Project. however.S. As a result of Einstein's letter. begin uranium enrichment and nuclear research. with Einstein's works being among those burnt. and Lise Meitner.

I am the more more distressed over these circumstances because my relationship with the Jewish people became my strongest human tie once I achieved complete clarity about our precarious position among the nations of the world. and scientific resources".. Einstein writes: What makes the new arrival devoted to this country is the democratic trait among the people.[46] Einstein said to his old friend. the individual was "encouraged" to be more creative. hence I lack both the natural aptitude and the experience to deal properly with people and to exercise official function.

socialism. it is time to go. 1955. While Boltzmann's statistical interpretation of entropy is universally accepted today.[55] [56] During the autopsy. who had struggled for years to gain acceptance for atoms. the pathologist of Princeton Hospital. At the time of his first paper in 1902. but a few expressed leftist political opinions about pacifism.[5] [7] In addition to the work he did by himself he also collaborated with other scientists on additional projects including the Bose–Einstein statistics. removed Einstein's brain for preservation.Albert Einstein 9 Death On April 17. in hope that the neuroscience of the future would be able to discover what made Einstein so intelligent. Boltzmann had given an interpretation of the laws of thermodynamics. Most were about physics. Intuitively. which had previously been reinforced surgically by Dr. because the mean free path of atoms becomes large at low densities. Albert Einstein experienced internal bleeding caused by the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. it was not yet completely accepted by physicists that atoms were real. without the permission of his family.[57] Scientific career Throughout his life. the entropy is the logarithm of the number of ways a system could be configured inside. had found the distribution of velocities of atoms in a gas. The reason the entropy goes up is only because it is more likely for a system to go from a special state with only a few possible internal configurations to a more generic state with many. the friction in a gas would seem to go to zero as the density goes to zero. Thomas Stoltz Harvey. but he did not live long enough to complete it. The statistical idea was most successful in explaining the properties of gases. the Einstein refrigerator and others. and Einstein believed it. Einstein published hundreds of books and articles. Ludwig Boltzmann was a leading 19th century atomist physicist. but this is not so. Albert Einstein in 1904. James Clerk Maxwell.[53] Einstein refused surgery. having continued to work until near the end.[58] Physics in 1900 Einstein's early papers all come from attempts to demonstrate that atoms exist and have a finite nonzero size. another leading atomist. It is tasteless to prolong life artificially. at the turn of the 20th century it was a minority position."[54] He died in Princeton Hospital early the next morning at the age of 76. I will do it elegantly. saying: "I want to go when I want. Einstein's remains were cremated and his ashes were scattered around the grounds of the Institute for Advanced Study. I have done my share. A subsequent . even though chemists had good evidence ever since Antoine Lavoisier's work a century earlier. and zionism.[52] He took the draft of a speech he was preparing for a television appearance commemorating the State of Israel's seventh anniversary with him to the hospital. The reason physicists were skeptical was because no 19th century theory could fully explain the properties of matter from the properties of atoms. Rudolph Nissen in 1948. and derived the surprising result that the viscosity of a gas should be independent of density. In Boltzmann's way of thinking. suggesting that the law of entropy increase is statistical.

and this is the way it will always be. a gas made up of a molecule with two atoms can be thought of as two balls on a spring. At temperatures near zero. and the papers as the Annus Mirabilis Papers. like a mirror suspended on spring. and the thermodynamic identity. Certain experiments could then be explained by atomic theory. Einstein pointed out that the statistical fluctuations of a macroscopic object. This led him first to thermodynamics. This spring has energy kBT at high temperatures. It does at temperatures of about 1000 degrees. underneath it all. the finite nonzero size of atoms leads to effects which can be observed. Similarly. and should contribute an extra kB to the specific heat. according to the statistical interpretation. showed that atoms in a gas had velocities distributed according to Maxwell's distribution law. and to the theory of specific heats of solids. His research in 1903 and 1904 was mainly concerned with the effect of finite atomic size on diffusion phenomena. all other contributions to the specific heat from rotations and vibrations also disappear. that in reality they could be assumed to be infinitesimally small. every spring-like motion has thermal energy kBT on average at temperature T. but at lower temperature. so the specific heat of every solid is 3NkB.Albert Einstein experiment by Maxwell and his wife confirmed this surprising prediction. the specific heat goes to zero. As in Maxwell's work. so the total specific heat of a continuous wave like light should be infinite in classical mechanics. he was a realist. In addition to these successes. He wrote a paper establishing a thermodynamic identity in 1902. because it would mean that all energy in the universe would be instantly sucked up into light waves. Einstein opposed this position. The most glaring inconsistency was in the theory of light waves. So he set out to show that the atomic point of view was correct. or so large that it might as well be infinite. This research. a result which became known as the Dulong–Petit law. but other experiments could not. Continuous waves in a box can be thought of as infinitely many spring-like motions. They would eventually form the content of his PhD thesis. but mathematical. a system has a maximum entropy and. the leading German language physics journal Annalen der Physik published four of Einstein's papers. At zero temperature. This is obviously wrong. while he was working in the patent office. Each standing wave has a specific heat of kB. and everything would slow down and stop. this contribution disappears. that Avogadro's number was infinite.[59] Mach believed that atoms were a useful fiction. Other experiments on gases and vacuum. A monatomic solid with N atoms can be thought of as N little balls representing N atoms attached to each other in a box grid with 3N springs. atomic theory predicted specific heats that are too large. He believed that a single consistent theory should explain all observations. This law is true at room temperature. so that the specific heat of every spring is Boltzmann's constant kB. but not for colder temperatures. 10 Thermodynamic fluctuations and statistical physics Einstein's earliest papers were concerned with thermodynamics. then to statistical physics. one for each possible standing wave. Throughout his career. would be completely . it should be possible to see them directly. In classical statistical mechanics. Maxwell noted that at cold temperatures. This behavior was inconsistent with classical physics.[60] His first major result in this field was the theory of thermodynamic fluctuations. using a rotating slitted drum. These inconsistencies led some people to say that atoms were not physical. When in equilibrium. In 1905. The four papers eventually were recognized as revolutionary. Notable among the skeptics was Ernst Mach. were well within the mainstream of physics in his time. whose positivist philosophy led him to demand that if atoms are real. there were also inconsistencies. and that this theory would be a description of what was really going on. and 1905 became known as Einstein's "Miracle Year". and kB was infinitesimally small. it can fluctuate a little bit. and a few other papers which attempted to interpret phenomena from a statistical atomic point of view.

is fiercely debated. measuring the precise amount of Brownian motion using Einstein's theory would show that Boltzmann's constant is non-zero and would measure Avogadro's number. Einstein sought new principles of this sort. These relations are known as Einstein relations. and to the radius of the particle (see Stokes' law). and has become a standard tool in modern theoretical physics. without thought. Einstein's required very few theoretical assumptions or new physics. and the time decay of the fluctuations would be entirely determined by the law of friction. but in the Brownian motion paper he showed that dynamical relaxation rates calculated from classical mechanics could be used as statistical relaxation rates to derive dynamical diffusion laws. Other principles postulated by Einstein and later vindicated are the principle of equivalence and the principle of adiabatic invariance of the quantum number. The first general a-priori principle he found was the principle of relativity. The law of friction for a small ball in a viscous fluid like water was discovered by George Stokes. as Brownian motion. and would move around randomly. He had come to understand that quantum properties of light mean that Maxwell's equations were only an approximation. A well accepted example of an a-priori principle is rotational invariance. This was understood by Hermann Minkowski to be a generalization of rotational invariance from space to space-time. These experiments were carried out a few years later by Jean Baptiste Perrin. The use of a-priori principles is a distinctive unique signature of Einstein's early work. to guide the production of physical ideas. it is assumed to be rotationally invariant almost automatically. and Einstein noted that such a ball. The theory of Brownian motion was the least revolutionary of Einstein's Annus mirabilis papers. He felt that guessing formal relations would not go anywhere. had actually been observed by the botanist Robert Brown. So he decided to focus on a-priori principles instead. he realized. 11 Thought experiments and a-priori physical principles Einstein's thinking underwent a transformation in 1905. just like an individual atom. then the new physics will be the simplest theory consistent with the principles and with previously known laws. and had an important role in securing the acceptance of the atomic theory by physicists. The theory of fluctuations. Another of Einstein's general principles.[61] Unlike the other methods. It established that thermodynamic fluctuations were related to dissipation. Einstein was able to identify this motion with that predicted by his theory. Einstein's theory of Brownian motion was the first paper in the field of statistical physics. Since the fluctuations which give rise to Brownian motion are just the same as the fluctuations of the velocities of atoms. Mach's principle. This was shown by Einstein to be true for time-independent fluctuations. If a new force is discovered in physics. would have a visible effect for an object which could move around freely. but it is the most frequently cited. would travel about a few micrometres per second. his great breakthrough came in 1905. Such an object would have a velocity which is random. This motion could be easily detected with a microscope and indeed. Searching for ways to test this relation. which are statements about physical laws which can be understood to hold in a very broad sense even in domains where they have not yet been shown to apply. This relation could be used to calculate how far a small ball in water would travel due to its random thermal motion. . and whether it holds in our world or not is still not definitively established. The average kinetic energy of the object would be . the friction force would be proportional to the velocity. and gave a rough estimate of Avogadro's number consistent with the more accurate estimates due to Max Planck's theory of blackbody light and Robert Millikan's measurement of the charge of the electron.Albert Einstein determined by the second derivative of the entropy with respect to the position of the mirror. that uniform motion is indistinguishable from rest. but he did not know how to go about finding those laws. He showed that for small velocities. since it was directly measuring atomic motion on visible grains. Once enough principles are found. of size about a micrometre. He knew that new laws would have to replace these.

according to the Planck law. where h is Planck's constant. But he does suggest that this idea would explain certain experimental results. so that each independent spring motion has energy which is an integer multiple of hf. where the light is described by Wien's law. has an entropy which looks exactly the same as the entropy of a gas of classical particles. which did not confirm his theory until fifteen years later. The high-frequency part. starting with Max Planck. which showed that the observed independence of the speed of light on the observer's state of motion required fundamental changes to the notion of simultaneity. Instead of connecting all the atoms to each other. Einstein concludes that the number of states of short wavelength light waves in a box with volume V is equal to the number of states of a group of localizable particles in the same box. Consequences of this include the time-space frame of a moving body slowing down and contracting (in the direction of motion) relative to the frame of the observer. since the number of independent oscillations stays the same. He was not at all motivated by the detailed experiments on the photoelectric effect. With this assumption.[66] [67] Photons In a 1905 paper. including Max Planck and Niels Bohr. notably the photoelectric effect. This paper also argued that the idea of a luminiferous aether – one of the leading theoretical entities in physics at the time – was superfluous.[65] Einstein's 1905 work on relativity remained controversial for many years. Einstein imagined that each atom was attached to a fixed point in space by a spring. This is not physically correct. the same idea could be applied to solids to fix the specific heat problem there. Einstein's light quanta were nearly universally rejected by all physicists. with Robert Millikan's detailed experiments on the photoelectric effect. as this is the only reasonable interpretation of the entropy. by explaining the specific heat anomaly in solids.[63] [64] This equation suggests that tiny amounts of mass could be converted into huge amounts of energy and presaged the development of nuclear power. This was the first application of quantum theory to a mechanical system. This idea only became universally accepted in 1919. Since (unlike others) he was comfortable with the statistical interpretation. He does not say much more. which leads to standing waves with all sorts of different frequencies.[68] Einstein postulated that light itself consists of localized particles (quanta). Einstein then assumes that the motion in this model is quantized. because he is not sure how the particles are related to the wave. which had previously been considered to be distinct concepts. The . and decomposes it into a low-frequency part and a high-frequency part. Einstein's model treats each atom as connected to a single spring.Albert Einstein 12 Special relativity His 1905 paper on the electrodynamics of moving bodies introduced his theory of special relativity. Einstein's paper on the light particles was almost entirely motivated by thermodynamic considerations. he confidently postulates that the light itself is made up of localized particles. he applied Boltzmann's statistical method to calculate the average energy of the spring.[62] In his paper on mass–energy equivalence. where f is the frequency of oscillation. and with the measurement of Compton scattering. Einstein considers the entropy of light at temperature T. Since Planck's distribution for light oscillators had no problem with infinite specific heats. Since the entropy is the logarithm of the number of possible states. but it still predicts that the specific heat is 3NkB. but was accepted by leading physicists.[69] Quantized atomic vibrations Einstein continued his work on quantum mechanics in 1906. This leads him to conclude that each wave of frequency f is associated with a collection of photons with energy hf each. Einstein deduced from his equations of special relativity what has been called the 20th century's best-known equation: E = mc2. Einstein showed in a simple model that the hypothesis that solid motion is quantized explains why the specific heat of a solid goes to zero at zero temperature.

and long wavelength vibration modes freeze out at colder temperatures than short wavelength ones. quantum mechanics expanded in scope to cover many different systems. At the critical point. and the periodic table of the elements. This was done by Peter Debye. he had not given up on academia. This paper introduced the photon concept (although the name photon was introduced later by Gilbert N. 13 Adiabatic principle and action-angle variables Throughout the 1910s. on the quantization of light. point-like particles. Then each normal mode has a different frequency. Niels Bohr was able to show that the same quantum mechanical postulates introduced by Planck and developed by Einstein would explain the discrete motion of electrons in atoms. giving a treatment of the density variations in a fluid at its critical point. So Einstein concluded that quantum mechanics would solve the main problem of classical physics. and which explains why the sky is blue. Wien had shown that the hypothesis of adiabatic invariance of a thermal equilibrium state allows all the blackbody curves at different temperature to be derived from one another by a simple shifting process. and the specific heat goes to zero.Albert Einstein result was the same as the one that Planck had derived for light: for temperatures where kBT is much smaller than hf. After Ernest Rutherford discovered the nucleus and proposed that electrons orbit like planets. he became a privatdozent at the University of Bern. In 1908. leading to large fluctuations. Einstein noted in 1911 that the same adiabatic principle shows that the quantity which is quantized in any mechanical motion must be an adiabatic invariant. Theory of critical opalescence Einstein returned to the problem of thermodynamic fluctuations. and after this modification Einstein's quantization method reproduced quantitatively the behavior of the specific heats of solids at low temperatures. Einstein showed that Max Planck's energy quanta must have well-defined momenta and act in some respects as independent.[70] In "über die Entwicklung unserer Anschauungen über das Wesen und die Konstitution der Strahlung" ("The Development of Our Views on the Composition and Essence of Radiation"). and to quantize those. this derivative is zero. Lewis in 1926) and inspired the notion of wave-particle duality in quantum mechanics. Arnold Sommerfeld identified this adiabatic invariant as the action variable of classical mechanics. The particles of sound implied by this formulation are now called phonons. the motion is frozen. they all freeze out at the same temperature. Einstein relates this to Raleigh scattering. making the fluid look milky white. the specific heat anomaly. Ordinarily the density fluctuations are controlled by the second derivative of the free energy with respect to the density. which is what happens when the fluctuation size is much smaller than the wavelength. This work was the foundation of condensed matter physics.[71] . The effect of density fluctuations is that light of all wavelengths is scattered. The law that the action variable is quantized was the basic principle of the quantum theory as it was known between 1900 and 1925. and in an earlier 1909 paper. Because all of Einstein's springs have the same stiffness. Wave-particle duality Although the patent office promoted Einstein to Technical Examiner Second Class in 1906. Einstein contributed to these developments by linking them with the 1898 arguments Wilhelm Wien had made. The solution to this problem is to solve for the independent normal modes individually. and this leads to a prediction that the specific heat should go to zero exponentially fast when the temperature is low.

and that the difference in rate is proportional to the gravitational potential to first approximation. Einstein at the Solvay conference in 1911. and show that it is nonzero. to half the energy spacing between levels. because the approximation he used doesn't work well for things moving at near the speed of light. the circumference would seem to be longer because the ruler would be contracted. He noted that such an observer would find a different value for the mathematical constant pi than the one predicted by Euclidean geometry. He thought about the case of a uniformly accelerated box not in a gravitational field. studying its properties by means of simple thought experiments. Since Einstein believed that the laws of physics were local. But the actual value for the deflection that he calculated was too small by a factor of two. he would rectify this error and predict the correct amount of light deflection by the sun. was based on the thermodynamics of a diatomic molecule which can split apart into two free atoms. he concluded from this that spacetime could be locally curved. described by local fields. From Prague. . Einstein had what he would call his "happiest thought". When Einstein finished the full theory of general relativity. which was made in 1913 in collaboration with Otto Stern.[74] Einstein thought about the nature of the gravitational field in the years 1909–1912. but. according to special relativity. A notable one is the rotating disk. while still working at the patent office. and noted that it would be indistinguishable from a box sitting still in an unchanging gravitational field. Einstein imagined an observer making experiments on a rotating turntable. and to formulate general relativity in this language. Although this approximation is crude. Principle of equivalence In 1907. The paper challenged astronomers to detect the deflection during a solar eclipse. He modified Planck's hypothesis by stating that the lowest energy state of an oscillator is equal to 1⁄2hf. it allowed him to calculate the deflection of light by gravity.Albert Einstein 14 Zero-point energy Einstein's physical intuition led him to note that Planck's oscillator energies had an incorrect zero point. This argument. He concludes that the rates of clocks depend on their position in a gravitational field.[73] German astronomer Erwin Finlay-Freundlich publicized Einstein's challenge to scientists around the world. This led him to study Riemannian geometry. Einstein published a paper about the effects of gravity on light. This gave him confidence that the scalar theory of gravity proposed by Gunnar Nordström was incorrect. specifically the gravitational redshift and the gravitational deflection of light.[72] He used special relativity to see that the rate of clocks at the top of a box accelerating upward would be faster than the rate of clocks at the bottom. The reason is that the radius of a circle would be measured with an uncontracted ruler. He realized that the principle of relativity could be extended to gravitational fields.

As its name suggests. he immediately visited his old ETH classmate Marcel Grossmann.[77] In 1917. He gave up looking for fully generally covariant tensor equations. especially 1902 Nobel Prize-winner Hendrik Lorentz and Willem de Sitter of Leiden University. accepting a contract as an Extraordinary Professor. to differential geometry. although its findings were not published. which confirmed Einstein's theory that light "bends". more generally. in May 1919. by late 1915.. a team led by the British astronomer Arthur Stanley Eddington claimed to have confirmed Einstein's prediction of gravitational deflection of starlight by the Sun while photographing a solar eclipse with dual expeditions in Sobral. more accurate observations. There have been claims that scrutiny of the specific photographs taken on the Eddington expedition showed the experimental uncertainty to be comparable to the same magnitude as the effect Eddington claimed to have demonstrated. with the equations of motion supplemented by additional gauge fixing conditions. he travelled to Holland regularly to lecture.[78] In 1918. Einstein became confused about the gauge invariance in the theory.S. and searched for equations that would be invariant under general linear transformations only.[80] fellow laureate Paul Dirac was quoted saying it was "probably the greatest scientific discovery ever made". from 1920 to 1930. after more than two years of intensive work Einstein abandoned the theory in November.[37] The deflection of light during a solar eclipse was confirmed by later.[82] Some resented the newcomer's fame. He formulated an argument that led him to conclude that a general relativistic field theory is impossible. Some of Einstein's work did reach the United Kingdom and the United States through the efforts of the Austrian Paul Ehrenfest and physicists in the Netherlands.Albert Einstein 15 Hole argument and Entwurf theory While developing general relativity. 1915 after realizing that the hole argument was mistaken. After the war ended. Einstein began exploring the usefulness of general covariance (essentially the use of tensors) for his gravitational theory. now a professor of mathematics. In June. several astronomers accepted Einstein 's 1911 challenge from Prague. for ten years. Simultaneously less elegant and more difficult than general relativity. northern Brazil.[81] The international media guaranteed Einstein's global renown.[75] General relativity In 1912. affecting the inertial motion of other matter. Einstein returned to Switzerland to accept a professorship at his alma mater. On the recommendation of Italian mathematician Tullio Levi-Civita. the work of Central Powers scientists was available only to Central Powers academics. During World War I. The Mount Wilson Observatory in California. and that a 1962 British expedition concluded that the method was inherently unreliable. the ETH. had published his general theory of relativity in the form in which it is used today. . and Príncipe.[74] Nobel laureate Max Born praised general relativity as the "greatest feat of human thinking about nature".[76] This theory explains gravitation as distortion of the structure of spacetime by matter. notably among some German Eddington's photograph of a solar eclipse. who introduced him to Riemannian geometry and. also in California. Einstein maintained his relationship with Leiden University. for national security reasons. published a solar spectroscopic analysis that showed no gravitational redshift. it was a sketch of a theory. but he later returned to it and. the Lick Observatory. announced that it too had disproved Einstein's prediction. 1913 the Entwurf ("draft") theory was the result of these investigations. Once back in Zurich. U.[79] However. a west African island. For a while Einstein thought that there were problems with the approach.

[83] [84] 16 Cosmology In 1917. Einstein modified the general theory by introducing a new notion. the universe could be an eternal static sphere[85] Einstein believed a spherical static universe is philosophically preferred. Einstein received a description of a statistical model from Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose. Modern quantum theory In 1917.[] .[87] It was not until 1995 that the first such condensate was produced experimentally by Eric Allin Cornell and Carl Wieman using ultra-cooling equipment built at the NIST–JILA laboratory at the University of Colorado at Boulder. the cosmological constant. Einstein's sketches for this project may be seen in the Einstein Archive in the library of the Leiden University. Einstein gave a wave equation for de Broglie waves. Einstein applied the General theory of relativity to model the structure of the universe as a whole. but this type of universe is not consistent with relativity. and submitted his translation of Bose's paper to the Zeitschrift für Physik. With a positive cosmological constant. Einstein in his office at the University of Berlin. Einstein published an article in Physikalische Zeitschrift that proposed the possibility of stimulated emission. Bose–Einstein statistics In 1924. In a closed universe. In another major paper from this era. which were received skeptically at first. at the height of his work on relativity. the physical process that makes possible the maser and the laser. which Einstein suggested was the Hamilton–Jacobi equation of mechanics.[88] Bose–Einstein statistics are now used to describe the behaviors of any assembly of bosons. because it was the first paper to show that the statistics of atomic transitions had simple laws. He had shown that general relativity incorporates Mach's principle to a certain extent in frame dragging by gravitomagnetic fields. he believed that Mach's principle would hold.[86] This article showed that the statistics of absorption and emission of light would only be consistent with Planck's distribution law if the emission of light into a mode with n photons would be enhanced statistically compared to the emission of light into an empty mode. because it would obey Mach's principle. among them the Bose–Einstein condensate phenomenon that some particulates should appear at very low temperatures. To fix this. Mach's principle has generated much controversy over the years.Albert Einstein physicists. based on a counting method that assumed that light could be understood as a gas of indistinguishable particles. Einstein discovered Louis de Broglie's work. but he knew that Mach's idea would not work if space goes on forever. This paper would inspire Schrödinger's work of 1926. and supported his ideas. Einstein also published his own articles describing the model and its implications. Einstein noted that Bose's statistics applied to some atoms as well as to the proposed light particles. This paper was enormously influential in the later development of quantum mechanics. He wanted the universe to be eternal and unchanging. who later started the Deutsche Physik (German Physics) movement.

The energy and momentum derived within general relativity by Noether's presecriptions do not make a real tensor for this reason. where geometrical fields emerge in a unified quantum-mechanical setting. and by Roy Kerr for spinning objects. Mainstream physics. These properties led Einstein to believe that pairs of particles and antiparticles could be described in this way. He maintained that the non-covariant energy momentum pseudotensor was in fact the best description of the energy momentum distribution in a gravitational field. because the gravitational field could be made to vanish by a choice of coordinates. Einstein became increasingly isolated in his research. Einstein–Cartan theory In order to incorporate spinning point particles into general relativity. Noether's theorem allows these quantities to be determined from a Lagrangian with translation invariance. So Einstein proposed that the path of a singular solution. Unified field theory Following his research on general relativity. This approach has been echoed by Lev Landau and Evgeny Lifshitz.Albert Einstein 17 Energy momentum pseudotensor General relativity includes a dynamical spacetime.[89] Although he continued to be lauded for his work. The use of non-covariant objects like pseudotensors was heavily criticized in 1917 by Erwin Schrödinger and others. Einstein argued that this is true for fundamental reasons. These solutions cut and pasted Schwarzschild black holes to make a bridge between two patches. Wormholes Einstein collaborated with others to produce a model of a wormhole. His motivation was to model elementary particles with charge as a solution of gravitational field equations. Einstein's dream of unifying other laws of physics with gravity motivates modern quests for a theory of everything and in particular string theory. Einstein ignored some mainstream developments in physics. Einstein entered into a series of attempts to generalize his geometric theory of gravitation. Since the equations of general relativity are non-linear. would be determined to be a geodesic from general relativity itself. This was established by Einstein. the affine connection needed to be generalized to include an antisymmetric part. which were not well understood until many years after his death. and has become standard. and his efforts were ultimately unsuccessful. in turn. in line with the program outlined in the paper "Do Gravitational Fields play an Important Role in the Constitution of the Elementary Particles?". but general covariance makes translation invariance into something of a gauge symmetry. like a black hole. a lump of energy made out of pure gravitational fields. This modification was made by Einstein and Cartan in the 1920s. most notably the strong and weak nuclear forces. and others. the geodesic equation which describes how particles move may be derived from the Einstein equations. like a black hole. If one end of a wormhole was positively charged. largely ignored Einstein's approaches to unification. In his pursuit of a unification of the fundamental forces. called the torsion. so it is difficult to see how to identify the conserved energy and momentum. not by a new law. the other end would be negatively charged. would move on a trajectory which is determined by the Einstein equations themselves. Equations of motion The theory of general relativity has a fundamental law – the Einstein equations which describe how space curves. which would allow the explanation of electromagnetism. In 1950. Infeld and Hoffmann for pointlike objects without angular momentum. he described his "unified field theory" in a Scientific American article entitled "On the Generalized Theory of Gravitation". .

because gravitational instabilities can lead to a concentration of energy density into black holes. so as to incorporate Mach's principle in a reasonable way. as was done. but no such theory has ever been found. As Miller points out. given specific definitions of "realism". This shows that in comparing different theories. spinning at the speed of light with infinite energy well before the point where it is about to collapse into a black hole. for plane waves of the type Einstein and Rosen considered in their paper. we must proceed very cautiously. Einstein subsequently entertained doubts about whether they could be physically realized. This differs from the accepted expression today. and the conclusions are well understood to be wrong. "locality". In 1937 he published a paper saying that the focusing properties of geodesics in general relativity would lead to an instability which causes plane gravitational waves to collapse in on themselves. He stabilized his solution by introducing a cosmological constant. superconductivity is not well understood. but Einstein wanted a universe which is an unchanging three dimensional sphere. While this is true to a certain extent in some limits. as noted in the footnotes to Einstein's paper added in the 1913 reprint. • Einstein himself considered the introduction of the cosmological term in his 1917 paper founding cosmology as a "blunder". thirty years after the establishing of modern quantum mechanics. and in particular the implications of the central singularity implicit in these models are still not understood. However. and when the universe was shown to be expanding. The modern consensus is that Einstein's concept of realism is too restrictive. • Closely related to his rejection of black holes. the extent to which the models of black holes in classical general relativity correspond to physical reality remains unclear. and "completeness". given a specific definition of the word "force" (a definition which he later agreed was not advantageous). Einstein retracted this position a short time later. we should naturally obtain other expressions for the masses. for example.. but by 1927 he had become convinced that it was valid. he retracted the constant as a blunder. This paper predated modern quantum mechanics. This is not really much of a blunder – the cosmological constant . by Max Planck in 1906. then one arrives at as the expression for the transverse mass of a fast moving particle. even today.. especially to account for high-temperature superconductors. who gave the now familiar expression for the transverse mass. In 1939 he published a paper that argues that a star collapsing would spin faster and faster. because. • In the early days of quantum mechanics. He wanted this for philosophical reasons. and alternative theories continue to be put forward. Einstein argued that quantum mechanics cannot be a complete realistic and local representation of phenomena. • In the EPR paper. since he only shows that stable spinning objects have to spin faster and faster to stay stable before the point where they collapse. and if we choose to maintain (by convention) the equation mass x acceleration = force. Einstein tried to show that the uncertainty principle was not valid.[91] The theory of general relativity predicted an expanding or contracting universe. like the surface of a three dimensional ball in four dimensions.Albert Einstein 18 Einstein's controversial beliefs in physics In addition to his well-accepted results." [90] • Einstein published (in 1922) a qualitative theory of superconductivity based on the vague idea of electrons shared in orbits. But it is well understood today (and was understood well by some even then) that collapse cannot happen through stationary states the way Einstein imagined. Efforts to conclusively prove the existence of event horizons have still not been successful. This paper received no citations. • Einstein denied several times that black holes could form. this is equivalent to the transverse mass predictions of both Einstein and Lorentz. Einstein believed that the exclusion of singularities might restrict the class of solutions of the field equations so as to force solutions compatible with quantum mechanics. Einstein had commented already in the 1905 paper that "With a different definition of force and acceleration. • After introducing the concept of gravitational waves in 1917. Einstein noted that. the instabilities are under control. "it is more to the point to define force in such a way that the laws of energy and momentum assume the simplest form". Einstein's argument itself is inconclusive. Nevertheless. The current theory of low temperature superconductivity was only worked out in 1957. some of Einstein's views are regarded as controversial: • In the special relativity paper (in 1905). and today is regarded as being incorrect.

• Finding it too formal. Schrödinger urged Einstein to add his name as co-author. In order to show this. although within a few years he had adopted it as the basis for his theory of gravitation. This experiment needed to be sensitive. U. • Einstein did not immediately appreciate the value of Minkowski's four-dimensional formulation of special relativity. Einstein and his former student Leó Szilárd co-invented (and in 1930. each level will have an integer occupation number. nowadays known to be the spin. based on Einstein's wave-particle duality was equivalent to Heisenberg's matrices. Schrödinger gas model Einstein suggested to Erwin Schrödinger that he might be able to reproduce the statistics of a Bose–Einstein gas by considering a box. Their invention was not immediately put into commercial production.Albert Einstein is necessary within general relativity as it is currently understood. patented) the Einstein refrigerator. This Absorption refrigerator was then revolutionary for having no moving parts and using only heat as an input. Erwin Schrödinger applied this to derive the thermodynamic properties of a semiclassical ideal gas. Einstein believed that Heisenberg's matrix mechanics was incorrect. Quantizing these oscillators. because the electron's angular momentum changes as the magnetization changes. Nathan Rosen. Then to each possible quantum motion of a particle in a box associate an independent harmonic oscillator. they reversed the magnetization in an iron bar suspended on a torsion pendulum. which will be the number of particles in it. Einstein-de Haas experiment Einstein and De Haas demonstrated that magnetization is due to the motion of electrons. because the angular momentum associated with electrons is small. He changed his mind when Schrödinger and others demonstrated that the formulation in terms of the Schrödinger equation.[93] On 11 November 1930. Peter Bergmann and others. but it predates modern quantum mechanics. This formulation is a form of second quantization.[95] . as the most promising of their patents were quickly bought up by the Swedish company Electrolux to protect its refrigeration technology from competition. and it is widely believed to have a nonzero value today. but it definitively established that electron motion of some kind is responsible for magnetization. 19 Collaboration with other scientists In addition to long time collaborators Leopold Infeld. although Einstein declined the invitation. They confirmed that this leads the bar to rotate. Einstein also had some one-shot collaborations with various scientists.S. Patent 1781541 [94] was awarded to Albert Einstein and Leó Szilárd for the refrigerator.[92] Einstein refrigerator In 1926.

Einstein returned to the question of quantum mechanics. A public debate between Einstein and Bohr followed. Einstein wrote: "I. In a 1926 letter to Max Born. lasting on and off for many years (including during the Solvay Conferences). am convinced that He [God] does not throw dice." [96] Einstein was never satisfied by what he perceived to be quantum theory's Einstein and Niels Bohr intrinsically incomplete description of nature. that by performing different measurements on the distant particle. which were all rebutted by Bohr. . quantum mechanics developed into a more complete theory. it has since been shown to be incompatible with experiments. with definite states resulting only upon interaction with classical systems.Albert Einstein 20 Bohr versus Einstein In the 1920s. He then used a hypothesis of local realism to conclude that the other particle had these properties already determined. quantum phenomena are inherently probabilistic. either of position or momentum. The principle he proposed is that if it is possible to determine what the answer to a position or momentum measurement would be. He noted. both in its outcomes and its instrumentalist methodology. then the particle actually has values of position or momentum. He considered how a measurement on one of two entangled particles would affect the other.[97] The EPR experiment has since been performed. Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen paradox In 1935. without in any way disturbing the particle. and in 1935 he further explored the issue in collaboration with Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen. noting that the theory seems to require non-local interactions. at any rate. along with his collaborators. this is known as the EPR paradox. different properties of the entangled partner could be discovered without disturbing it in any way. Einstein being a scientific realist. Einstein was unhappy with the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum theory developed by Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg. In this interpretation. Einstein formulated thought experiments against the Copenhagen interpretation.[98] Repercussions of the Einstein–Bohr debate have found their way into philosophical discourse. This principle distilled the essence of Einstein's objection to quantum mechanics. As a physical principle. with results confirming quantum theory's predictions.

Einstein tackles some of the era's most important physics questions and problems. his wife. In 1900. and he later said of a co-worker there.[2] [3] [4] Through these papers.[8] . may have had some influence on Einstein's work but how much is unclear. In addition to co-workers and papers the other members of the self-styled "Olympian Academy" (Solovine and Habicht). scientific colleagues available to discuss his theories were few. The Annus Mirabilis is often called the "Miracle Year" in English or Wunderjahr in German. Despite the greater fame achieved by his other works. As introduced. Additionally. that he "could not have found a better sounding Einstein. however none was forthcoming until the time dilation experiments of Ives and Stilwell (1938).31 Annus Mirabilis and special relativity Annus Mirabilis papers The Annus Mirabilis papers (from Latin annus mīrābilis." The Nobel committee had waited patiently for experimental confirmation of special relativity. although he did regularly read and contribute reviews to Annalen der Physik. special relativity provided an account for the results of the Michelson-Morley experiments.[1] Background At the time the papers were written. time. Mileva Marić. it was his work on the photoelectric effect which won him his Nobel Prize in 1921: "For services to theoretical physics and especially for the discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. a lecture titled "Nineteenth-Century Clouds over the Dynamical Theory of Heat and Light". "extraordinary year") are the papers of Albert Einstein published in the Annalen der Physik scientific journal in 1905. suggested that physics had no satisfactory explanations for the results of the Michelson-Morley experiment and for black body radiation. These four articles contributed substantially to the foundation of modern physics and changed views on space. when he wrote the Annus Mirabilis board for his ideas in all of Europe".[6] (1941)[7] and Rossi and Hall (1941). Switzerland. in 1905. Einstein's theories for the photoelectric effect extended the quantum theory which Max Planck had developed in his successful explanation of black body radiation. such as that on special relativity. Einstein did not have easy access to a complete set of scientific reference materials. He worked as an examiner at the Patent Office in Bern. and matter.[5] by Lord Kelvin. Michele Besso.

called quanta. Arthur Compton's X-ray scattering experiment helped more of the scientific community to accept this formula. Energy.. The simplest conception is that a light quantum transfers its entire energy to a single electron [. even low intensity light produced electrons. the assumption of infinite divisibility of energy in physical systems. his explanation was not universally accepted. but it consists of a finite number of energy quanta localised at points in space. some physicists accepted that the equation ( ) was correct and light quanta were possible. as Einstein illustrates. While we consider the state of a body to be completely determined by the positions and velocities of an indeed very large yet finite number of atoms and electrons. even intense light produced no electrons.. In 1923. as well. we make use of continuous spatial functions to determine the electromagnetic state of a volume of space.] Einstein noted that the photoelectric effect depended on the wavelength.]. He compared this to Planck's hypothesis that light could be emitted only in packets of energy given by hf. and Maxwell's theory of electromagnetic processes in so-called empty space. He then postulated that light travels in packets whose energy depends on the frequency. once a certain frequency was reached. and therefore only light above a certain frequency would bring sufficient energy to liberate an electron. However. At too low a frequency. this] leads to contradictions when applied to the phenomena of emission and transformation of light. the production of cathode rays by light can be conceived in the following way. assumes that luminous energy can be absorbed or emitted only in discrete amounts. in his 1922 Nobel address. In explaining the photoelectric effect. According to the view that the incident light consists of energy quanta [. The theory of light quanta was a strong indicator of wave-particle duality. Niels Bohr. a fundamental principle of quantum mechanics. The idea of light quanta contradicts the wave theory of light that follows naturally from James Clerk Maxwell's equations for electromagnetic behavior and. Einstein states.... motivated by Max Planck's earlier derivation of the law of black body radiation. moving without dividing and capable of being absorbed or generated only as entities. is not continuously distributed over steadily increasing spaces. the hypothesis that energy consists of discrete packets. "On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light". [.. can be directly applied to black bodies. more generally. where h is Planck's constant and f is the frequency. A profound formal difference exists between the theoretical concepts that physicists have formed about gases and other ponderable bodies. "The hypothesis of light-quanta is not able to throw light on the nature of radiation. during the propagation of a ray of light.Annus Mirabilis papers 32 Papers Photoelectric effect The paper. stated. . This idea." By 1921. and hence the frequency of the light. The body's surface layer is penetrated by energy quanta whose energy is converted at least partially into kinetic energy of the electrons. when Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize and his work on photoelectricity was mentioned by name in the award citation. so that a finite number of quantities cannot be considered as sufficient for the complete determination of the electromagnetic state of space.[10] A complete picture of the theory of photoelectricity was realized after the maturity of quantum mechanics. Even after experiments confirmed that Einstein's equations for the photoelectric effect were accurate.[9] proposed the idea of energy quanta.

mass. and that it had not been possible to discover any motion of the Earth relative to the 'light medium'. Einstein proposes that the speed of light has the same value in all inertial frames of reference. according to the molecular kinetic theory of heat. James Clerk Maxwell. which had not detected a medium of conductance (or aether) for light waves unlike other known waves that require a medium (such as water or air)." suggest that the phenomena of electrodynamics as well as of mechanics possess no properties corresponding to the idea of absolute rest. Christian Doppler. and thus not relative to the movement of the observer. he applies the classic principle of relativity. At the time. In this paper it will be shown that. Special relativity is thus consistent with the result of the Michelson–Morley experiment.Annus Mirabilis papers 33 Brownian motion The article "Über die von der molekularkinetischen Theorie der Wärme geforderte Bewegung von in ruhenden Flüssigkeiten suspendierten Teilchen" ("On the Motion of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid. It also lent credence to statistical mechanics. one of the leaders of the anti-atom school.. to the laws of electrodynamics and optics as well as mechanics.. We will raise this conjecture (the purport of which will hereafter be called . the article established the phenomenon. However. and Hendrik Lorentz. his third paper that year. This later became known as Einstein's special theory of relativity. … the unsuccessful attempts to discover any motion of the earth relatively to the "light medium. led to asymmetries. as a result of thermal molecular motions. as detailed in history of special relativity. Wilhelm Ostwald. … the same laws of electrodynamics and optics will be valid for all frames of reference for which the equations of mechanics hold good. First. Special relativity Einstein's "Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper" ("On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies")[12] . In the second postulate. independent of the state of motion of the emitting body. was published on June 30. perform motions of such magnitudes that they can be easily observed with a microscope. Before this paper. when applied to moving bodies. Einstein's paper introduces a new theory of time. Using the kinetic theory of fluids. The paper mentions the name of only five other scientists. which was lacking a satisfactory explanation even decades after the first observation. later told Arnold Sommerfeld that he had been convinced of the existence of atoms by Einstein's complete explanation of Brownian motion. distance. by introducing major changes to mechanics close to the speed of light. Many of the ideas had already been published by others. but physicists and chemists debated whether atoms were real entities. The speed of light is fixed. which had been controversial at that time. This was impossible under Newtonian classical mechanics. the data available to me on the latter are so imprecise that I could not form a judgment on the question . it was known that Maxwell's equations. but omitted the force of gravity. It does not have any references to any other publications. which states that the laws of physics remain the same for any non-accelerating frame of reference (called an inertial reference frame). Brownian motion generates expressions for the root mean square displacement of particles. as Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat")[11] delineated a stochastic model of Brownian motion. as well. which at the time was controversial. Einstein puts forward two postulates to explain these observations. and energy that was consistent with electromagnetism. Einstein's statistical discussion of atomic behavior gave experimentalists a way to count atoms by looking through an ordinary microscope. atoms were recognized as a useful concept. Isaac Newton. It reconciles Maxwell's equations for electricity and magnetism with the laws of mechanics. Einstein argues. bodies of a microscopically visible size suspended in liquids must. however. Heinrich Hertz. It is possible that the motions to be discussed here are identical with so-called Brownian molecular motion. Einstein states. provided empirical evidence for the reality of the atom.

Special relativity gained widespread acceptance remarkably quickly. which differed from the explanations given by FitzGerald. whether the ray be emitted by a stationary or by a moving body. the theory was supported by an ever-increasing body of confirmatory experimental evidence.. Any ray of light moves in the "stationary" system of co-ordinates with the determined velocity c. that light is always propagated in empty space with a definite velocity c which is independent of the state of motion of the emitting body. and electromagnetic processes.Annus Mirabilis papers the "Principle of Relativity") to the status of a postulate. Einstein revealed the underlying causes for this geometrical oddity. Hendrik Lorentz (1899. "Ist die Trägheit eines Körpers von seinem Energieinhalt abhängig?" ("Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?"). whether these changes of state be referred to the one or the other of two systems of co-ordinates in uniform translatory motion. that the Michelson-Morley result could be accounted for if moving bodies were contracted in the direction of their motion. and most importantly. Some of the paper's core equations. The second is the rule that the speed of light is the same for every observer. clocks. Einstein writes. The theory […] is based—like all electrodynamics—on the kinematics of the rigid body. now called the special theory of relativity. Insufficient consideration of this circumstance lies at the root of the difficulties which the electrodynamics of moving bodies at present encounters. Larmor.. confirming Einstein's comment that it had been "ripe for discovery" in 1905. 1903. 34 Matter and energy equivalence On September 27 Annalen der Physik published a fourth paper. the "rest energy". distinct from its classical kinetic and potential energies. and also introduce another postulate. the Lorentz transforms. together with the Maxwellian expression for the electromagnetic energy of space . The previous investigation was based "on the Maxwell-Hertz equations for empty space. in a development of Lorentz's 1904 paper. and Lorentz. 1900). distinguishes it from his later general theory of relativity. independent of each other. Acknowledging the role of Max Planck in the early dissemination of his ideas. the axioms of relativity. which is only apparently irreconcilable with the former. It had previously been conjectured. The introduction of a "luminiferous ether" will prove to be superfluous in as much as the view here to be developed will not require an "absolutely stationary space" provided with special properties. the improved mathematical formulation of the theory by Hermann Minkowski in 1907 was influential in gaining acceptance for the theory. which considers all observers to be equivalent. since the assertions of any such theory have to do with the relationships between rigid bodies (systems of co-ordinates). but were similar in many respects to the reasons given by Poincaré (1905). These two postulates suffice for the attainment of a simple and consistent theory of the electrodynamics of moving bodies based on Maxwell's theory for stationary bodies. First. Einstein considered the equivalency equation to be of paramount importance because it showed that a massive particle possesses an energy. Galileo's idea that the laws of nature should be the same for all observers that move with constant speed relative to each other. In addition. which is here to be deduced. Einstein wrote in 1913 "The attention that this theory so quickly received from colleagues is surely to be ascribed in large part to the resoluteness and warmth with which he [Planck] intervened for this theory". His explanation arises from two axioms. 1904) and Henri Poincaré (1905). The results of the previous investigation lead to a very interesting conclusion. in addition. nor assign a velocity-vector to a point of the empty space in which electromagnetic processes take place. Also. had been published by Joseph Larmor (1897." . The laws by which the states of physical systems undergo change are not affected. The theory.[13] in which Einstein developed an argument for arguably the most famous equation in the field of physics: E = mc². by George FitzGerald in 1894 and by Lorentz 1895. The paper is based on James Clerk Maxwell's and Heinrich Rudolf Hertz's investigations and. as Einstein states. namely.

Thus it seemed possible to determine absolute motion relative to the aether and therefore to disprove Galileo's Principle. and subsequent work of Max Planck. he was not able to provide a coherent mechanical description of the aether. Subsequent work of Hermann Minkowski laid the foundations of Relativistic Field Theories. it was believed that light propagates as a transverse wave within an elastic medium called luminiferous aether. During the 19th century the aether theory was widely accepted. It culminated in the theory of special relativity proposed by Albert Einstein. Hendrik Lorentz. Introduction Although Isaac Newton based his theory on absolute space and time. However.[3] Other important contributions to Maxwell's theory were made by George FitzGerald. Henri Poincaré in 1905 proposed the Relativity Principle as a general law of nature. According to Maxwell all optical and electrical phenomena propagate in a medium. This stated that all observers who move uniformly relative to each other are equal and no absolute state of motion can be attributed to any observer. Henri Poincaré and others. In addition.[2] After Heinrich Hertz in 1887 demonstrated the existence of electromagnetic waves. This paved the way to General Relativity. He first proposed that light was in fact undulations (Electromagnetic radiation) in the same aetherial medium that is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena.[1] but after considerable work by many scientists. Maxwell's theory was widely accepted. Attempts to unify those models or to create a complete mechanical description of them did not succeed.

**Search for the aether
**

Regarding the relative motion and the mutual influence of matter and aether, two theories were considered: The one of Fresnel (and subsequently Lorentz), who developed a Stationary Aether Theory in which light propagates as a transverse wave and aether was partially dragged with a certain coefficient by matter. Based on this assumption, Fresnel was able to explain the Aberration of light and many optical phenomena.[6] On the other hand, George Gabriel Stokes stated in 1845 that the aether was fully dragged by matter (later this view was also shared by Hertz). In this model the aether might be (by analogy with pine pitch) rigid for fast objects and fluid for slower objects. Thus the Earth could move through it fairly freely, but it would be rigid enough to transport light.[7] Fresnel's theory was preferred because his dragging coefficient was confirmed by the Fizeau experiment of Hippolyte Fizeau in 1851, who measured the speed of light in moving liquids.[8] Albert Abraham Michelson (1881) tried to measure the relative motion of earth and Aether (Aether-Wind), as it was expected in Fresnel’s theory, by using an interferometer. He could not determine any relative motion, so he interpreted the result as a confirmation of the thesis of Stokes.[9] However, Lorentz (1886) showed Michelson's calculations were wrong and that he overestimated the accuracy of the measurement. This, together with the large margin of error, made the result of Michelson's experiment inconclusive. In addition, Lorentz showed that Stokes' completely dragged aether lead to contradictory consequences, and therefore he supported an aether theory similar to Fresnel's.[10] To check Fresnel's theory Michelson and Edward Morley (1886) performed a repetition of the Fizeau experiment. Fresnel's dragging coefficient was confirmed very exactly on that occasion, and Michelson was now of the opinion that Fresnel's stationary aether Albert Abraham Michelson theory is correct.[11] To clarify the situation, Michelson and Morley (1887) repeated Michelson's 1881-experiment, whereby they corrected the former errors of calculation, and they substantially increased the accuracy of the measurement. However, this now famous Michelson-Morley experiment again yielded a negative result, i.e., no motion of the apparatus through the aether was detected. So the physicists were confronted with two seemingly contradictory experiments: The 1886-experiment as an apparent confirmation of Fresnel's stationary aether, and the 1887-experiment as an apparent confirmation of Stokes' completely dragged aether.[12] A possible solution to the problem was shown by Woldemar Voigt (1887), who investigated the Doppler Effect for waves propagating in an incompressible elastic medium and deduced transformation relations that left the Wave equation in free space unchanged, and explained the negative result of the Michelson-Morley Experiment. The Voigt-Transformations include the Lorentz factor for the y- and z-coordinates, and a new time variable which later was called "local time". However, Voigt's work was completely ignored by his contemporaries.[13] [14] FitzGerald (1889) offered another explanation of the negative result of the Michelson-Morley experiment. Contrary to Voigt, he speculated that the intermolecular forces are possibly of electrical origin so that also material bodies would contract in the line of motion (length contraction). This was in connection with the work of Heaviside (1887), who determined that the electrostatic fields were contracted in the line of motion (Heaviside Ellipsoid), which leads to physically undetermined conditions at the speed of light.[15] However, Fitzgerald's idea remained widely unknown and was not discussed before Oliver Lodge published a summary of the idea in 1892.[16] Also Lorentz (1892b) proposed length contraction independently from Fitzgerald in order to explain the Michelson-Morley experiment. For plausibility reasons, Lorentz referred to the analogy of the contraction of electrostatic fields. However, even Lorentz admitted that that was not a necessary reason and length-contraction consequently remained as a purely

Lorentz's theory of electrons

Hendrik Antoon Lorentz

Lorentz (1892a) set the foundations of Lorentz aether theory, by assuming the existence of electrons which he separated from the aether, and by replacing the "Maxwell-Hertz" Equations by the "Maxwell-Lorentz" Equations. In his model, the aether is completely motionless and, contrary to Fresnel's theory, also is not partially dragged by matter. An important consequence of this notion was that the velocity of light is totally independent of the velocity of the source. Lorentz gave no statements about the mechanical nature of the aether and the electromagnetic processes, but, vice-versa, tried to explain the mechanical processes by electromagnetic ones and therefore created an abstract electromagnetic æther. In the framework of his theory, Lorentz calculated, like Heaviside, the contraction of the electrostatic fields.[19] Lorentz (1895) also introduced what he called the "Theorem of Corresponding States" for terms of first order in . This theorem states that a moving observer (relative to the aether) in his "fictitious" field makes the same observations as a resting observers in his "real" field. An important part of it was local time , which paved the way to the Lorentz Transformation and which he introduced independently of Voigt. With the help of this concept, Lorentz could explain the aberration of light, the Doppler Effect and the Fizeau experiment as well. However, Lorentz's local time was only an auxiliary mathematical tool to simplify the transformation from one system into another – it was Poincaré in 1900 who recognized that "local time" is actually indicated by moving watches.[20] [21] [22] Lorentz also recognized the fact that his theory violated the principle of action and reaction, since the aether acts on matter, but matter cannot act on the immobile aether.[23] A very similar model was created by Joseph Larmor (1897, 1900). Larmor was the first to put Lorentz's 1895-transformation into a form algebraically equivalent to the modern Lorentz transformations, however, he stated that his transformations preserved the form of Maxwell's equations only to second order of . Lorentz later noted that these transformations did in fact preserve the form of Maxwell's equations to all orders of . Larmor noticed on that occasion, that not only can length-contraction be derived from it, but he also calculated some sort of Time Dilation for electron orbits. Larmor specified his considerations in 1900.[14] [24] Independently of Larmor, also Lorentz (1899) extended his transformation for second order terms and noted a (mathematical) Time Dilation effect as well. However, besides Lorentz and Larmor also other physicists tried to develop a consistent model of electrodynamics. For example, Emil Cohn (1900, 1901) created an alternative Electrodynamics in which he, as one of the first,

History of special relativity discarded the existence of the aether (at least in the previous form) and would use, like Ernst Mach, the fixed stars as a reference frame instead. Due to internal failures (like different light speeds in different directions) his theory was superseded by Lorentz's and Einstein's.[25]

Electromagnetic mass

During his development of Maxwell's Theory, J. J. Thomson (1881) recognized that charged bodies are harder to set in motion than uncharged bodies. He also noticed that the mass of a body in motion is increased by a constant quantity. Electrostatic fields behave as if they add an "electromagnetic mass" to the mechanical mass of the bodies. I.e., according to Thomson, electromagnetic energy corresponds to a certain mass. This was interpreted as some form of self-inductance of the electromagnetic field.[26] [3] Thomson's work was continued and perfected by FitzGerald, Heaviside (1888), and George Frederick Charles Searle (1896, 1897). For the electromagnetic mass they gave — in modern notation — the formula , where is the electromagnetic mass and is the electromagnetic energy. Heaviside and Searle also recognized that the increase of the mass of a body is not constant and varies with its velocity. Consequently, Searle noted the impossibility of superluminal velocities, because infinite energy would be needed to exceed the speed of light. Also for Lorentz (1899), the integration of the speed-dependence of masses recognized by Thomson was especially important. He noticed that the mass not only varied due to speed, but is also dependent on the direction, and he introduced what Abraham later called "longitudinal" and "transverse" mass. (The transversal mass corresponds to what later was called Relativistic Mass).[27] Wilhelm Wien (1900) assumed (following the works of Thomson, Heaviside, and Searle) that the entire mass is of electromagnetic origin and the formula for the mass-energy-relationship is . This was formulated in the context that all forces of nature are electromagnetic ones (the Electromagnetic World View). Wien stated that, if it is assumed that gravitation is an electromagnetic effect too, then there has to be a proportionality between electromagnetic energy, inertial mass and gravitational mass.[28] In the same paper Henri Poincaré (1900b) found another way of combining the concepts of mass and energy. He recognized that electromagnetic energy behaves like a fictitious fluid with mass density of (or ) and defined a fictitious electromagnetic momentum as well. However, he arrived at a radiation paradox which was fully explained by Einstein in 1905.[29] Walter Kaufmann (1901-1903) was the first to confirm the velocity dependence of electromagnetic mass by analyzing the ratio (where is the charge and the mass) of cathode rays. He found that the value of decreased with the speed, showing that, assuming the charge constant, the mass of the electron increased with the speed. He also believed that those experiments confirmed the assumption of Wien, that there is no "real" mechanical mass, but only the "apparent" electromagnetic mass, or in other words, the mass of all bodies is of electromagnetic origin.[30] Max Abraham (1902 - 1904), who was a supporter of the electromagnetic world view, quickly offered an explanation for Kaufmann's experiments by deriving expressions for the electromagnetic mass. Together with this concept, Abraham introduced (like Poincaré in 1900) the notion of "Electromagnetic Momentum" which is proportional to . But unlike Poincaré, he considered it as a real physical entity. Abraham also noted (like Lorentz in 1899) that this mass also depends on the direction and coined the names "Longitudinal" and "Transverse" Mass. In contrast to Lorentz, he didn't incorporated the Contraction Hypothesis into his theory, and therefore his mass terms differed from those of Lorentz. [31] Based on the preceding work on electromagnetic mass, Friedrich Hasenöhrl suggested that part of the mass of a body (which he called apparent mass) can be thought of as radiation bouncing around a cavity. The apparent mass of radiation depends on the temperature (because every heated body emits radiation) and is proportional to its energy, and he first concluded that . Hasenöhrl stated that this energy-apparent-mass relation only holds as long a body radiates, i.e., if the temperature of a body is greater than 0 K. However, Abraham and Hasenöhrl himself in 1905 changed the result to , the same value as for the electromagnetic mass for a body at rest.[32]

He also said that even accelerated motion such as rotation could be related to the fixed stars without using Newton's absolute space. However. in which space and time were only two sides of some sort of "spacetime". Heinrich Streintz (1883) argued that if gyroscopes don't measure any signs of rotation. or the order of their succession. Wells in his novel The Time Machine (1895). Eventually. He concluded by saying. He also rejected any connection with the existing constructions of n-dimensional spaces and non-Euclidean geometry and consequently rejected the spacetime formalism of Einstein and Minkowski.[38] He used time as an imaginary fourth dimension.History of special relativity 41 Absolute space and time Some scientists started to criticize Newton's definitions of absolute space and time. 1900a) argued that experiments like that of Michelson-Morley show the impossibility of detecting the absolute motion of matter or the relative motion of matter in relation to the aether. as Ole Rømer did based on observations of the moons of Jupiter.e. On that occasion. Palagyi's time coordinate is not connected to the speed of light like it is in Lorentz's theory. which he gave the form (where . which included: philosophical assessments on the relativity of space. and that this speed is the same in all directions. which represents some sort of rigid and fixed body for defining inertial motion. so physicists like Max Born argued that his model bears only little resemblance with relativity. Poincaré also noted that the propagation speed of light can be (and in practice often is) used to define simultaneity between spatially separate events. as it was done by some authors in the 19th century like H. i. There were also some attempts to use time as a Fourth Dimension. the possible non-existence of the aether but also some arguments supporting the aether. And in 1902. Based on the definition of Neumann. many remarks on non-Euclidean geometry. the equality of two durations. Without this postulate it would be impossible to infer the speed of light from astronomical observations. In other words. Carl Neumann (1870) introduced a "Body alpha". time. imaginary number). then one can speak of inertial motion which is related to a "Fundamental body" and a "Fundamental Coordinate System". Henri Poincaré published the philosophical and popular-science book "Science and Hypothesis"."[40] Henri Poincaré In some other papers. all these rules. Ludwig Lange (1885) was the first to coin the expression inertial frame of reference and inertial time scale as operational replacements for absolute space and time. So Henri Poincaré (1898) in his paper The Measure of Time drew some important consequences of this process and explained that astronomers. And in 1901 a philosophical model was published by Menyhért Palágyi.[36] [37] This was done as early as 1754 by Jean le Rond d'Alembert in the Encyclopédie. in determining the speed of light.[39] Light constancy and the Principle of relative motion In the second half of the 19th century there were many attempts to develop a worldwide clock network synchronized by electrical signals. all these definitions are only the fruit of an unconscious opportunism.[33] [34] [35] For example. He . and simultaneity. Ernst Mach (1883) argued that absolute time and space are meaningless and only relative motion is a useful concept. simply assume that light has a constant speed. the finite propagation speed of light had to be considered as well. G. by defining "a reference frame in which a mass point thrown from the same point in three different (non co-planar) directions follows rectilinear paths each time it is thrown is called a inertial frame". that "The simultaneity of two events. are to be so defined that the enunciation of the natural laws may be as simple as possible. the opinion that a violation of the Relativity Principle can never be detected. Poincaré (1895.

[42] Therefore. Poincaré draw some consequences from Lorentz's theory and defined (in modification of Galileo's Relativity Principle and Lorentz's Theorem of Corresponding States) the following principle: "The Principle of Relativity." He also specified his clock synchronization method and explained the possibility of a "new method" or "new mechanics". And in June 1904. from the point of view of an observer at rest in the aether. because in Lorentz's theory of the contracted electrons. He assumed that 2 observers A and B. which were in agreement with Kaufmann's experiments. of determining whether or not we are being carried along in such a motion. the theory that was created by him later in 1906 was incorrect and not self-consistent.e. However. Wien (1903) recognized an important consequence of the velocity dependence of mass. Poincaré-defined local time can be measured and indicated by clocks. he could explain the negative result of the Trouton-Noble experiment. However.[46] Lorentz's theory was criticized by Abraham. he noticed the same in relation to length contraction.[44] Lorentz's 1904 model In his paper Electromagnetic phenomena in a system moving with any velocity smaller than that of light. However. not mechanical mass. and can have none. because that would require an infinite amount of energy — the same was already noted by Thomson (1893) and Searle (1897). Abraham showed. Since they believe themselves to be at rest. Louis named The Principles of Mathematical Physics. i. synchronize their clocks by optical signals. and on the other side the electromagnetic origin of all forces is assumed. in Abraham's theory of the rigid electron. And using the electromagnetic momentum. in which a charged parallel-plate capacitor moving through the aether should orient itself perpendicular to the motion. Another important step was the postulate that the Lorentz Transformation has to be valid for non-electrical forces as well.History of special relativity 42 called this the "principle of relative motion. He tried to prove the validity of the Lorentz transformation for all orders. because at superluminal velocities the factor becomes imaginary. after he had read Lorentz's 1904 paper. those experiments were not precise enough to distinguish between the theories of Lorentz and Abraham. So. But because the moving observers do not know anything about their movement. that both assumptions were incompatible. that two events at different place could appear as simultaneous. although they are not simultaneous in reality. the clocks are not synchronous and indicate the local time . non-electric forces were needed in order to guarantee the stability of matter. the relativity principle. the Conservation of Mass and the Conservation of Energy are not fully established and are even threatened by some experiments. and the Lorentz transformation was absent within his theory as well. Lorentz (1904) was following the suggestion of Poincaré and attempted to create a formulation of Electrodynamics. no such forces were needed. contrary to Lorentz.[47] In a September 1904 lecture in St. who demonstrated that on one side the theory obeys the relativity principle. Newton's action and reaction. they do not recognize this. Poincaré argued that Lorentz has convincingly explained the negative outcome of the aether drift experiments by inventing the "diminished time". Like Wien and Abraham.[43] Like Poincaré. he argued that there exists only electromagnetic mass. when Lorentz worked out his theory.e. Bucherer even assumed that this implies the nonexistence of the aether. so that we have no means. He argued that superluminal velocities were impossible. i. according to which the laws of physical phenomena must be the same for a stationary observer as for one carried along in a uniform motion of translation. However. in which no velocity can surpass that of light for all observers. although he didn't succeed completely. but contrary to Poincaré. which explains the failure of all known aether drift experiments. Alfred Bucherer (1903) believed in the validity of the relativity principle within the domain of electrodynamics."[41] In the same year he interpreted Lorentz's local time as the result of a synchronization procedure based on light signals. and derived the correct expression for longitudinal and transverse mass.[48] . However. they must consider only the transmission time of the signals and then cross-reference their observations to examine whether their clocks are synchronous. Thus the question arose whether the Electromagnetic conception of the world (compatible with Abraham's theory) or the Relativity Principle (compatible with Lorentz's Theory) was correct. he critically noted that the Relativity Principle. which are moving in the aether. in his recommendation of Lorentz for the Nobel Prize in 1902.[45] At the same time.

[25] 43 Poincaré's Dynamics of the electron On 5 June 1905. because no experiment can distinguish between them. He spoke literally of „the postulate of relativity“. which is based on the assumption of isotropic propagation of light. but this problem was quickly solved. (This short paper contained the results of a more complete work which was published in January 1906). which he called the Lorentz group. and if they are moving. and he corrected Lorentz's formulas for the transformations of charge density and current density (which implicitly contained the relativistic velocity-addition formula. in his physical papers he continued to refer to an (undetectable) aether. received 23 July. 1906. and he gave them the symmetrical form which is used to this day. He introduced a non-electrical binding force (the so called "Poincaré stresses") to ensure the stability of the electrons and to explain length contraction. He showed that the transformations are a consequence of the Principle of Least Action and developed the properties of the Poincaré stresses. Yet according to Cohn's own theory. published January 1906 ). 1908b) to describe coordinates and phenomena as local/apparent (for moving observers) and true/real (for observers at rest in the aether).History of special relativity Also Emil Cohn (1904) continued to develop his alternative model (as described above). Contrary to Lorentz and Poincaré it was noticed by Cohn. and he showed that the combination is invariant.[22] [52] So with a few exceptions[53] [54] [55] most historians of science argue that Poincaré did not invent what is now called special relativity. He illustrated (like Joseph Larmor in the same year) this transformation by using rods and clocks: If they are at rest in the aether. While elaborating his gravitational theory. Cohn defined local time as the time. He demonstrated in more detail the group characteristics of the transformation. he said the Lorentz transformation is merely a rotation in four-dimensional space about the origin.[56] [57] [58] [59] [60] [61] . and he used an early form of four-vectors. Like Poincaré.[51] However. He showed that Lorentz's equations of electrodynamics were not fully Lorentz-covariant. and while comparing his theory with that of Lorentz. Poincaré used for the first time the term "Lorentz transformation". He also continued (1900b. by introducing as a fourth imaginary coordinate (contrary to Palagyi. although it is admitted that Poincaré anticipated much of Einstein's methods and terminology. He wrote that the discovery of magneto-cathode rays by Paul Ulrich Villard (1904) seems to threaten the entire theory of Lorentz.[49] [50] Eventually Poincaré (independently of Einstein) finished a substantially extended work of his June paper (the so called „Palermo paper“. he included the speed of light). although in his philosophical writings Poincaré rejected the ideas of absolute space and time. So he pointed out the group characteristics of the transformation. they indicate the true length and time. printed 14 December. he discovered some important physical interpretations of the Lorentz transformations. the Lorentz transformed quantities would only be valid for optical phenomena. Henri Poincaré submitted the summary of a work which closed the existing gaps of Lorentz's work. 1904. He also sketched a Lorentz-invariant model of gravitation (including gravitational waves) by extending the validity of Lorentz-invariance to non-electrical forces. which he elaborated in May in a letter to Lorentz). they indicate contracted and dilated values. that within Lorentz's theory the separation of "real" and "apparent" coordinates is artificial. while mechanical clocks would indicate the "real" time.

Special relativity

Einstein 1905

Electrodynamics of moving bodies In September 26, 1905 (received 30 June), Albert Einstein published his annus mirabilis paper on what is now called Special Relativity. Einstein's paper includes a fundamental new definition of space and time (all time and space coordinates in all reference frames are equal, so there is no "true" or "apparent" time) and the abolition of the aether. He identified two fundamental principles, the Principle of Relativity and the Principle of the Constancy of Light, which served as the axiomatic basis of his theory. To better understand Einstein's step, a summary of the situation before 1905, as it was described above, shall be given[62] (it must be remarked that Einstein was familiar with the 1895 theory of Lorentz, and "Science and Hypothesis" by Poincaré, but not their papers of 1904-1905): a) Maxwell's electrodynamics, in the way as it was presented by Lorentz in 1895, was the most successful theory at this time. Here, the Albert Einstein, 1921 speed of light is constant in all directions in the stationary aether, and completely independent of the velocity of the source; b) The inability to find an absolute state of motion, which was the consequence of the negative results of all aether drift experiments, as well as the fact that effects like the moving magnet and conductor problem only depend on relative motion; c) The Fizeau experiment; d) The aberration of light. This had the following consequences for the speed of light and the theories known at that time: 1. The speed of light is not composed by the speed of light in vacuum and the velocity of a preferred frame of reference, by b. This contradicts the theory of the (nearly) stationary aether. 2. The speed of light is not composed by the speed of light in vacuum and the velocity of the light source, by a and c. This contradicts the emission theory. 3. The speed of light is not composed by the speed of light in vacuum and the velocity of an aether that would be dragged within or in the vicinity of matter, by a, c, and d. This contradicts the hypothesis of the complete aether drag. 4. The speed of light in moving media is not composed by the speed of light when the medium is at rest, and the velocity of the medium, but is determined by Fresnel's dragging coefficient, by c.[63] To make the preceding theories tenable, the introduction of Ad hoc hypotheses would be required. Yet in science the assumption of a conspiracy of effects which prevent the discovery of other effects is considered to be very improbable, and it would violate Occam's razor as well.[64] So Einstein refused to invent auxiliary hypotheses, and draw the direct conclusions from the facts stated above: That the relativity principle is correct and the speed of light is constant in all inertial reference frames. Because of his axiomatic method, Einstein was able to derive all results of his predecessors – and in addition the formulas for the Relativistic Doppler effect and Relativistic aberration – on a few pages, while his predecessors needed years of long, complicated work to arrive at the same mathematical formalism. Lorentz and Poincaré had also adopted these same principles, as necessary to achieve their final results, but didn't recognize that they were also sufficient, and hence that they obviated all the other assumptions (especially the stationary aether) underlying Lorentz's initial derivations.[60] [65] Another reason for Einstein's rejection of the aether was probably his work on quantum physics. Einstein found out that light can also be described as a particle, so the aether as the medium for electromagnetic "waves" (which was highly important for Lorentz and Poincaré) had no

History of special relativity place in his theoretical concepts anymore.[66] It's notable that Einstein's paper contains no direct references to other papers. However, many historians of science like Holton,[64] Miller,[57] Stachel,[67] have tried to find out possible influences on Einstein. Einstein himself stated that his thinking was influenced by the empiricist philosophers David Hume and Ernst Mach. Regarding the Relativity Principle, the moving magnet and conductor problem (possibly after reading a book of August Föppl) and the various negative aether drift experiments were important for him to accept that principle — but he denied any significant influence of the most important experiment: the Michelson-Morley experiment.[67] Other possible sources are Poincaré's Science and Hypothesis, where he described the Principle of Relativity and which was read by Einstein in 1904,[68] and the writings of Max Abraham, from whom he borrowed the terms "Maxwell-Hertz equations" and "longitudinal and transverse mass".[69] Regarding his views on Electrodynamics and the Principle of the Constancy of Light, Einstein himself stated that Lorentz's theory of 1895 (or the Maxwell-Lorentz electrodynamics) and also the Fizeau experiment had considerable influence on his thinking. He said in 1909 and 1912 that he borrowed that principle from Lorentz's stationary aether (which implies validity of Maxwell's equations and the constancy of light in the aether frame), but he recognized that this principle together with the principle of relativity makes the aether useless.[70] As he wrote in 1907 and in later papers, the apparent contradiction between those principles can be solved if it is realized that Lorentz's local time is not an auxiliary quantity, but can simply be defined as time and is connected with signal velocity. Before Einstein, also Poincaré developed a similar physical interpretation of local time and noticed the connection to signal velocity, but contrary to Einstein he continued to argue that clocks in the aether show the true time, and moving clocks show the apparent time. Eventually, in 1953 Einstein described the advances of his theory (although Poincaré already stated in 1905 that Lorentz invariance is a general condition for any physical theory):[70]

There is no doubt, that the special theory of relativity, if we regard its development in retrospect, was ripe for discovery in 1905. Lorentz had already recognized that the transformations named after him are essential for the analysis of Maxwell's equations, and Poincaré deepened this insight still further. Concerning myself, I knew only Lorentz's important work of 1895 [...] but not Lorentz's later work, nor the consecutive investigations by Poincaré. In this sense my work of 1905 was independent. [..] The new feature of it was the realization of the fact that the bearing of the Lorentz transformation transcended its connection with Maxwell's equations and was concerned with the nature of space and time in general. A further new result was that the "Lorentz invariance" is a general condition for any physical theory. This was for me of particular importance because I had already previously found that Maxwell's theory did not account for the micro-structure of radiation and could therefore have no general validity.

Mass-energy equivalence Already in §10 of his paper on electrodynamics, Einstein used the formula

for the kinetic energy of an electron. In elaboration of this he published a paper (received 27 September, November 1905), in which Einstein showed that when a material body lost energy (either radiation or heat) of amount E, its mass decreased by the amount E/c2. This led to the famous mass–energy equivalence formula: E = mc2. Einstein considered the equivalency equation to be of paramount importance because it showed that a massive particle possesses an energy, the "rest energy", distinct from its classical kinetic and potential energies.[29] As it was shown above, many authors before Einstein arrived at similar formulas (including a 4/3-factor) for the relation of mass to energy. However, their work was focused on electromagnetic energy which (as we know today) only represents a small part of the entire energy within matter. So it was Einstein who was the first a) to ascribe this relation to all forms of energy, and b) to understand the connection of Mass-energy equivalence with the relativity principle.

Early reception

First assessments Walter Kaufmann (1905, 1906) was probably the first who referred to Einstein's work. He compared the theories of Lorentz and Einstein, and, although he said Einstein's method is to be preferred, he argued that both theories are observationally equivalent. Therefore, he spoke of the relativity principle as the "Lorentz-Einsteinian" basic assumption. The name "Lorentz-Einstein-Theory" was used by others for some years as well.[71] Shortly afterwards, Max Planck (1906a) was the first who publicly defended the theory, and who interested his students Max von Laue and Kurd von Mosengeil for this theory. He described Einstein's theory as a "generalization" of Lorentz's theory, and to this "Lorentz-Einstein-Theory" he gave the name "relative theory", while Alfred Bucherer changed Planck's notation into the now common "theory of relativity". On the other hand, Einstein himself and many others continued to simply refer to the new method as the "relativity principle". And in an important overview article on the relativity principle (1908a), Einstein described SR as a "union of Lorentz's theory and the relativity principle", including the fundamental assumption that Lorentz's local time can be described as real time. (Yet, Poincaré's contributions were rarely mentioned in the first years after 1905.) All of those expressions (Lorentz-Einstein theory, relativity principle, relativity theory) were used by different physicists alternately in the next years.[72] Kaufmann-Bucherer experiments Kaufmann (1905, 1906) announced the results of his new experiments on the charge to mass ratio, i.e. the velocity dependence of mass. They represented, in his opinion, a clear refutation of the relativity principle and the Lorentz-Einstein-Theory, and a confirmation of Abraham's theory. For some years, Kaufmann's experiments represented a weighty objection against the relativity principle, although it was criticized by Planck and Adolf Bestelmeyer (1906). Following Kaufmann, other physicists like Alfred Bucherer (1908), and Günther Neumann (1914) also examined the velocity-dependence of mass, and this time it was thought that the "Lorentz-Einstein theory" and the relativity principle is confirmed, and Abraham's theory is disproved. However, it was later pointed out that the Kaufmann-Bucherer-Neumann experiments only showed a qualitative mass increase of moving electron, but they were not precise enough to distinguish between the models of Lorentz-Einstein and Abraham. So it lasted until 1940, when experiments of this kind were repeated with sufficient accuracy for confirming the Lorentz-Einstein formula.[71] However, this problem occurred only for this kind of experiments. The investigations of the fine structure of the hydrogen lines already in 1917 provided a clear confirmation of the Lorentz-Einstein formula, and the refutation of Abraham's theory.[73]

He acknowledged the priority of Einstein's 1905 work on . and mass is considered as an invariant quantity. In addition. So the older definition of longitudinal and transverse mass. On that occasion.History of special relativity Relativistic momentum and mass Planck (1906a) defined the relativistic momentum and gave the correct values for the longitudinal and transverse mass by correcting a slight mistake of the expression given by Einstein in 1905. After first attempts by Jakob Laub (1907) to create a relativistic "optics of moving bodies". Laue calculated a displacement of the interference pattern if the platform is in rotation – because the speed of light is independent of the velocity of the source. While Sagnac himself concluded that his theory confirmed the theory of an aether at rest. like all other pre-Einstein ones. Eventually Planck (1907) derived the mass-energy-equivalence in general within the framework of special relativity. Franz Harress (1912) performed an experiment which can be . in which mass was defined as the ratio of force to acceleration. for example in analogy to a Foucault pendulum[77] [Already in 1909–11. it was Max von Laue (1907) who derived the coefficient for terms of all orders by using the colinear case of the relativistic velocity addition law. he noted that the formal mathematical content of Poincaré paper on the center of mass(1900b) and his own paper were mainly the same. many modern textbooks on relativity don't use the concept of relativistic mass anymore.[23] In 1911 Laue also discussed a situation where on a platform a beam of light is split and the two beams are made to follow a trajectory in opposite directions. although the physical interpretation was different in light of relativity. contained incorrect numerical prefactors (see Electromagnetic mass). A experiment of this kind was performed by Georges Sagnac in 1913. who actually measured a displacement of the interference pattern (Sagnac effect). derived the same expression for the additional mass of a body due to electromagnetic radiation as Hasenöhrl. became superfluous. Laue's calculation was much simpler than the complicated methods used by Lorentz. Hasenöhrl's idea was that the mass of bodies included a contribution from the electromagnetic field. Laue's earlier calculation showed that it is compatible with special relativity as well because in both theories the speed of light is independent of the velocity of the source. Mass and energy Einstein (1906) showed that the inertia of energy (mass-energy-equivalence) is a necessary and sufficient condition for the conservation of the center of mass theorem. but Planck judged his own approach as more general than Einstein's. the concept of relativistic mass was developed by Gilbert Newton Lewis and Richard C. On return to the point of entry the light is allowed to exit the platform in such a way that an interference pattern is obtained. including the binding forces within matter. already in 1895 Lorentz succeeded in deriving Fresnel's dragging coefficient (to first order of v/c) and the Fizeau experiment by using the electromagnetic theory and the concept of local time.[76] Experiments by Fizeau and Sagnac As it was explained above. he imagined a body as a cavity containing light.[74] Based on the work of Planck. Tolman (1912) interpreted relativistic mass simply as the mass of the body. Tolman (1908. Finally. This effect can be understood as the electromagnetic counterpart of the mechanics of rotation. so one beam has covered less distance than the other beam.[29] Max Planck 47 Kurd von Mosengeil (1906) by extending Hasenöhrl's calculation of black-body-radiation in a cavity.[75] However. His relationship between mass and energy. 1909) by defining mass as the ratio of momentum to velocity. Planck's expressions were in principle equivalent to those used by Lorentz in 1899.

Also. Hence the observer will see the beam of light emitted from B earlier than he will see that emitted from A. for the case of a double-star system seen edge-on. whereby he used the Galilei-Transformation instead of the Lorentz-Transformation (i. in which A and B are at rest the signals are sent at the same time and the observer "is hastening towards the beam of light coming from B. who showed that.History of special relativity considered as a synthesis of the experiments of Fizeau and Sagnac." Emission theories of light Walter Ritz (1908) and others sketched an emission theory. in his description two signals are sent from A and B to the observer. While Harress himself misunderstood the meaning of the result. And finally the emission theory is considered to be disproved by Willem de Sitter (1913). a variation of the Sagnac experiment) indicated the angular velocity of the Earth itself in accordance with special relativity and a resting aether. they synchronously start to run. He tried to measure the dragging coefficient within glass. Observers who take the railway train as their reference-body must therefore come to the conclusion that the lightning flash B took place earlier than the lightning flash A. the Michelson–Gale–Pearson experiment (1925. then the image of the star system should appear completely scrambled. whilst he is riding on ahead of the beam of light coming from A. From this observer a signal is sent to both clocks. it was shown by Laue that the theoretical explanation of Harress' experiment is in accordance with the Sagnac effect.[81] However. light from the approaching star might be expected to travel faster than light from its receding companion and overtake it. et al. Relativity of simultaneity The first derivations of relativity of simultaneity by synchronization with light signals were also simplified. and then comes clock A – so the clocks are not synchronized.[80] However. the velocity of light is independent of the velocity of the stars.. but it was shown by Brecher (1977) that even at X-ray wavelengths. But from the perspective of a system in which A and B are moving. If the distance was great enough for an approaching star's "fast" signal to catch up with and overtake the "slow" light that it had emitted earlier when it was receding. 48 . in systems where the source is moving at ± v.[78] ] Eventually.[79] Daniel Frost Comstock (1910) placed an observer in the middle between two clocks A and B. (1964). So this theory obeys the relativity principle and although it violates the constancy of light. the light propagates with the velocity equal to c ± v). and in the frame in which A and B are at rest. However. the solution provided by special relativity is preferred over an emission theory. who measured the velocity of γ-rays after the decay of π0-mesons – the result show that the velocity of light is independent of the source. clock B is first set in motion. which is not supported by the success of Maxwell's theory.e. From the perspective of the frame. Also Einstein (1917) created a model with an observer in the middle between A and B. Einstein briefly considered such a hypothesis before 1905. according to which the speed of light in all reference frames is only constant relative to the source of emission (and not to an aether). it explains the Michelson-Morley-experiment. due to extinction that argument is invalid for optical wavelengths. Contrary to Fizeau he used a rotating device so he found the same effect as Sagnac. Other effects that rule out the theory are the Sagnac effect and the experiments by Alväger. for such a theory would require a complete reformulation of electrodynamics. So the experiment cannot be considered as a direct proof of the constancy of the speed of light in all reference frames.

That was based on the work of many mathematicians of the 19th century like Arthur Cayley. and b) served as a basis for further development of relativity.History of special relativity 49 Spacetime physics Minkowski's spacetime Poincaré's attempt of a four-dimensional reformulation of the new mechanics was not continued by himself. or William Kingdon Clifford. Today special relativity is seen as an application of linear algebra. removes much of the strangeness of that concept. Felix Klein. non-four-dimensional derivation of the basic-equations for moving bodies.[82] Using similar methods. Minkowski succeeded in formulating a geometrical interpretation of the Lorentz transformation. He also introduced a trigonometric formulation of the relativistic velocity addition rule. he created the Minkowski diagram for the depiction of space-time. as explicitly noted by Minkowski. Laue also showed that non-electrical forces are needed for ensure the proper Lorentz transformation properties and for the stability of . He completed. Poincaré and Planck. and most notably he presented a four-dimensional formulation of electrodynamics. but he criticized his predecessors for not fully developing the relativity of space. Similar to Poincaré he tried to formulate a Lorentz-invariant law of gravity.[51] So it was Hermann Minkowski (1907). Einstein (1912) agreed on the importance of Minkowski's spacetime formalism and used it for his work on the foundations of general relativity. However. which according to Sommerfeld. And in his famous lecture Space and Time (1908) he mentioned Voigt. There were no textbooks on linear algebra as modern vector space and transformation theory. Einstein. etc.. Minkowski himself considered Einstein's theory as a generalization of Lorentz's and credited Einstein for completely stating the relativity of time. Arnold Sommerfeld (1910) replaced Minkowski's matrix notation by an elegant vector notation and coined the terms "four vector" and "six vector". Lorentz and Einstein. Vector notation and closed systems Minkowski's space-time formalism was extended and therefore was quickly accepted. But it was Minkowski's formalism which a) showed that special relativity is a complete and consistent theory. because in his opinion that would entail too much effort. who used the spacetime formalism to create a relativistic theory of deformable bodies and elementary particle theory. but that work was superseded by Einstein's elaborations on gravitation. we can see that the Lorentz transformations are simply hyperbolic rotations. the concept of four vectors.[85] Eventually. In retrospect. Invariant theory and Projective geometry. for example.[84] For example. proper time. Lorentz invariance/covariance. he was the first to use expressions like world line. 1913). but at the time special relativity was being developed the field of linear algebra was still in its infancy.[83] [84] In 1908. and the matrix notation of Arthur Cayley (that unifies the subject) had not yet come into widespread use.[86] [87] He extended Minkowski's expressions for electromagnetic processes to all possible forces and thereby clarified the concept of mass-energy-equivalence. Hermann Minkowski In 1907 Minkowski named four predecessors who contributed to the formulation of the relativity principle: Lorentz. That is because Minkowski (like Wien or Abraham) adhered to the electromagnetic world-picture and apparently didn't fully understand the difference between Lorentz's electron theory and Einstein's kinematics. who worked out the consequences of that notion. modern historians of science argue that Minkowski's claim for priority was unjustified. Einstein and Laub rejected the four-dimensional electrodynamics of Minkowski as too complicated and published a "more elementary". who contributed to Group theory. Other important contributions were made by Laue (1911.

traveling with a certain relative velocity to each other. It merely affects (slightly) their appearance. which apparently occurs as a consequence of the reciprocity of time dilation. Lewis (1912) introduced a vector notation for spacetime. and simply written the metric in explicitly non-Euclidean form (i. angled path.as in the recent work of Hawking . Space-time is described by Minkowski space. Non-euclidean formulations without imaginary time coordinate It was noted by Minkowski (1907) that his space-time formalism represents a "four-dimensional non-euclidean manifold". Ignatowski was forced to recourse to electrodynamics to include the speed of light. So Pauli and others argued that both postulates are needed to derive the Lorentz transformation. However.. but most have adopted real-valued coordinates and a metric with negative signature. Also Lorentz (1910–1912) discussed the reciprocity of time dilation and analyzed a clock "paradox". R.are beyond the scope of this article. However. but the velocity space is described by hyperbolic geometry. only the sign of the relative speed changes. until today. Today one still finds texts on special relativity that make use of an imaginary time coordinate. but in order to emphasize the formal similarity to the more familiar Euclidean geometry. But if the observer looks at clock B. many subsequent writers have dispensed with the imaginary time coordinate. Edwin Bidwell Wilson and Gilbert N.History of special relativity matter – he could show that the "Poincaré stresses" are a natural consequence of relativity theory so that the electron be a closed system. thus clock B is slower than A. (The implications of the two different formalisms in the context of general relativity . This was just a way of representing a non-Euclidean metric while emphasizing the formal similarity to a Euclidean metric. and Vladimir Varićak (1912) emphasized the similarity of this formulation to (Bolyai-Lobachevskian) hyperbolic geometry and tried to reformulate relativity using that non-euclidean geometry. Philipp Frank and Hermann Rothe (1911) argued that this derivation is incomplete and needs additional assumptions. The clocks consist of two plane mirrors parallel to one another and to the line of motion.) Time dilation and twin paradox Einstein (1907a) proposed a method for detecting the Transverse Doppler effect as a direct consequence of time dilation. Émile Borel (1913) derived the kinematic basis of Thomas precession. b) when changing frames. Sommerfeld (1910) gave a trigonometric formulation of velocities.[90] Different authors have used the phrase hyperbolic plane to refer both to (Bolyai-Lobachevskian) hyperbolic geometry and Minkowski geometry but these are two different geometries. while in the other system two clocks 50 . he sees that within that clock the signal traces out a longer.e. Lorentz showed that there is no paradox if one considers that in one system only one clock is used. according to Pauli and Miller such models were insufficient to identify the invariant speed in their transformation with the speed of light — for example. However. Vladimir Ignatowski (1910) for example used for this purpose a) the principle of relativity. and for the observer resting in the same reference frame as A. for the observer moving alongside with B the situation is completely in reverse: Clock B is faster and A is slower. Their own calculation was based on the assumptions that a) the Lorentz transformation forms a homogeneous linear group. And in fact. b) and homogeneity and isotropy of space c) the requirement of reciprocity. that effect was measured in 1938 by Herbert E. Minkowski noted that the time coordinate could be treated as imaginary. Stilwell (Ives–Stilwell experiment).[88] [89] However. with a negative signature). the period of clock A is the distance between the mirrors divided by the speed of light. Alfred Robb (1911) introduced the concept of Rapidity as a hyperbolic angle to characterize frame velocity. Ives and G. c) length contraction solely depends on the relative speed. others continued the attempts to derive special relativity without the light postulate. Between the mirrors a light signal is bouncing. since it makes no difference to the content or results of the equations.[91] And Lewis and Tolman (1909) described the reciprocity of time dilation by using two light clocks A and B. In particular the hyperboloid model was identified with velocities by Minkowski (1908). Lorentz transformation without second postulate There were some attempts to derive the Lorentz transformation without the postulate of the constancy of the speed of light.

[92] Acceleration Einstein (1908) tried . Harry Bateman and Ebenezer Cunningham (1910) showed that Maxwell's equations are invariant under a much wider group of transformation then the Lorentz-group.[94] [95] 51 Max von Laue . the so called "conformal transformations". In the course of this attempt he recognized that for any single moment of acceleration one can define an inertial reference frame. He recognized that the world-line of such an accelerated body corresponds to an hyperbola. This notion was further developed by Born (1909) and Sommerfeld (1910) whereby Born introduced the expression "hyperbolic motion". Laue was also the first to visualize the situation using Minkowski diagrams – he demonstrated how the world lines of inertially moving bodies maximize the proper time elapsed between two events. so Langevin could show that the symmetry is broken and the accelerated twin is younger. the equivalence principle that was used by Einstein in the course of that investigation. He noted that uniform acceleration can be used as an approximation for any form of acceleration within special relativity. Under those transformations the equations preserve their form for some types of accelerated motions. the works by Langevin and others for rotating frames (Born coordinates). also Minkowski (1908) considered the special case of uniform accelerations within the framework of his space-time formalism. Langevin himself interpreted this as a hint to the existence of an aether. the application of the constancy of the speed of light to define simultaneity is restricted to small localities. So the relativity of simultaneity has to be considered as well. where he replaced the clocks by persons (Langevin never used the word "twins" but his description contained all other features of the paradox). his deductions regarding the aether were not accepted. in which the accelerated body is temporarily at rest.. Although Langevin's explanation is used in principle until today. which expresses the equality of inertial and gravitational mass and the equivalence of accelerated frames and homogeneous gravitational fields. Concerning the further development of the description of accelerated motion in special relativity. Laue (1913) pointed out that the acceleration can be made arbitrarily small in relation to the inertial motion of the twin. while the other twin remains in one frame. A similar situation was created by Paul Langevin in 1911 with what was later called the "twin paradox". In addition. So it is much more important that one twin travels within two inertial frames during his journey.also to include accelerated motions within the relativity principle.History of special relativity are necessary. Langevin solved the paradox by alluding to the fact that one twin accelerates and changes direction. A general covariant formulation of electrodynamics in Minkowski space was eventually given by Friedrich Kottler (1912).[93] Nearly simultaneously with Einstein. whereby his formulation is also valid for general relativity. and by Wolfgang Rindler and others for uniform accelerated frames (Rindler coordinates) must be mentioned.e. However. It follows that in accelerated frames defined in this way. transcended the limits of special relativity and resulted in the formulation of general relativity.preliminarily in the framework of special relativity . However. i.

However. This question was also considered by Gustav Herglotz. when he was able to exactly derive the Perihelion precession of Mercury. it was shown by Abraham (1912) that those models belong to the class of "vector theories" of gravitation. whereby he discussed two of them. However. in a relativistic theory of gravitation. Nordström's theory of gravitation was remarkable because it was shown by Einstein and Adriaan Fokker (1914). Although Nordström's theory is without contradiction. which would violate the energy principle. and therefore it was irreconcilable with relativity.History of special relativity Rigid bodies and Ehrenfest paradox Einstein (1907b) discussed the question of whether. tried to include the concept of rigid bodies into SR. As a consequence.[96] In connection to the Ehrenfest paradox. As an alternative. While Mie never formulated his theory in a consistent way. who argued that the speed of gravity is many times faster then the speed of light. as in general relativity the constancy of light speed (and Lorentz covariance) is only locally valid. the kinematic length contraction is "apparent" for an co-moving observer. He added that a dynamics of the rigid body must be created in the framework of SR. He tried to modify Newton's law of gravitation so that it assumes a Lorentz-covariant form. but for an observer at rest it is "real" and the consequences are measurable. He noted that there were many possibilities for a relativistic law. The decision between those models was brought about by Einstein. Einstein's theory was the only which gave the correct value for the deflection of light near the sun.[97] Gravitation The first attempt to formulate a relativistic theory of gravitation was undertaken by Poincaré (1905). as in this theory preferred frames of referenced can still be formulated. all of those models violated the equivalence principle. Abraham (1912) and Gustav Mie (1913) proposed different "scalar theories" of gravitation. That is. Gunnar Nordström (1912. Paul Ehrenfest (1909) showed that Born's concept lead the so called Ehrenfest paradox. is not valid within an relativistic theory. while the other theories gave erroneous results. in rigid bodies. and Einstein argued that is impossible to formulate a theory which is both Lorentz-covariant and satisfies the equivalence principle. Fritz Noether. from Einstein's point of view a fundamental problem persisted: It doesn't fulfill the important condition of general covariance. the notion of a complete "special relativistic" theory of gravitation has to be given up. 1913) was able to create a model which fulfills both conditions. superluminal velocities are thought impossible. So contrary to those "scalar theories". it was rather a dispute over words because. This was achieved by making both the gravitational and the inertial mass dependent on the gravitational potential. While Born's definition was not applicable on rigid bodies. as well as in all other cases. Max Born (1909) in the course of his above mention work concerning accelerated motion. It was recognize by Laue that the classic concept is not applicable in SR since a "rigid" body possesses infinitely many Degrees of freedom. general relativity). the velocity of information can exceed the speed of light. that in this model gravitation can be completely described in terms of space-time curvature.[98] [99] 52 . Similar models as that of Poincaré were discussed by Minkowski (1907b) and Sommerfeld (1910).e. planetary orbit are stable even when the speed of gravity is equal to that of light. Eventually. It was shown be Poincaré that the argument of Pierre-Simon Laplace. In addition. as Einstein and Wolfgang Pauli said. it was also discussed (by Vladimir Varićak and others) whether length contraction is "real" or "apparent". and explained that information could be transmitted under these circumstances into the past. according to which the circumference of a rotating disk is shortened because of length contraction by a constant radius. Einstein (1911-1915) developed a "tensor theory" (i. However. In addition. The fundamental defect of those theories is that they implicitly contain a negative value for the gravitational energy in the vicinity of matter. it was very useful in describing rigid motions of bodies. and whether there is a difference between the dynamic contraction of Lorentz and the kinematic contraction of Einstein. which fulfills both the equivalence principle and general covariance. Abraham completely gave up the concept of Lorentz-covariance (even locally). Since this contravenes radically against every experience. However. and then causality would be violated. and 1911 by Laue.

Although there still are critics of relativity outside the scientific mainstream. Albert Abraham Michelson. still believed in the existence of an aether in any form. Menyhért Palágyi. Hjalmar Mellin. Henri Bergson. already Planck (1909) compared the implications of the modern relativity principle — especially Einstein's relativity of time — with the revolution by the Copernican system. 53 Priority Some claim that Poincaré (and Lorentz). and. the overwhelming majority of scientists agree that Special Relativity has been verified in many different ways and there are no inconsistencies within the theory. Herbert Dingle. the speed light attains appears different for observers who move at different speeds relative to each other. not Einstein. but Einstein's and Minkowski's interpretations implied Lorentz's hypothesis as the natural consequence of some postulates.[102] . and later also modified the speed of time. the same as with every other known phenomenon. from stellar aberration. The two results suggested contradictory conclusions: was the aether local and fluid. and the term "Lorentz-Einstein-Theory" wasn't used anymore. Criticisms Some criticized Special Relativity for various reasons. Georges Sagnac. Louis Essen. that there had to be a rigid aether which carried the light as the Earth moved through it. around 1911 most mathematicians and theoretical physicists accepted the results of special relativity. or was it universal and rigid? Lorentz's solution made the Earth shorter in the direction of travel around the Sun.[100] As a result. internal inconsistencies. Bruno Thüring. Harald Nordenson. the fundamental difference between the dynamical approach of Lorentz and the kinematical of Einstein was pointed out. Poincaré. But other critics had already concluded. One early criticism was the assertion that light simply travels with the earth in a so-called "co-moving luminiferous aether". relating to his reception history. In the process of traveling through its "immediately surrounding physical reality". Abraham or Langevin. Einstein in 1915. used the expression "special theory of relativity" to distinguish between the theories. After formulating GR. whose Welteislehre was referred to as the "German Theory of Relativity" among German right-wing circles during the Weimar Republic. rejection of mathematical physics per se. Critics asserted the Michelson-Morley experiment null result was not the theoretical enigma some scientists believed. Only a few theoretical physicists like Lorentz. Other reasons were Antisemitism within the Deutsche Physik. are the true founders of special relativity. Walter Ritz. Examples are: Max Abraham. Hugo Dingler.[101] Another important reason for accepting special relativity was the extension of Minkowski's space-time formalism around 1910–1913[84] So in 1912 Wilhelm Wien recommended both Lorentz and Einstein for the Nobel Prize in Physics – even though this prize was never awarded for special relativity. Johannes Stark. Herbert E. philosophical reasons. Ives. Philipp Lenard. For example. Hans Hörbiger. For more see the article on relativity priority dispute. for the first time. So the then-current understanding of light apparently needed to be changed according to this new belief: the medium for light was not rigid after all. Friedrich Adler. such as lack of empirical evidence. This was criticized by scientists at first. Examples are: Ernst Gehrcke.History of special relativity Acceptance of special relativity Eventually.

Their strong gravity is thought to be responsible for the intense radiation emitted by certain types of astronomical objects (such as active galactic nuclei or microquasars). In that article. General relativity (GR) is a theory of gravitation that was developed by Albert Einstein between 1907 and 1915. . careful astronomical observation revealed unexplainable variations between the theory and the observations. However. while others are the subject of ongoing research. regions of space where gravitational attraction is so strong that not even light can escape. in which additional effects such as the deflection of light by massive bodies were predicted. General relativity also predicts novel effects of gravity. and that for a freefalling observer the rules of special relativity must apply. It provides the foundation for the current understanding of black holes. Einstein published another article expanding on the 1907 article.65 Light and general relativity History of general relativity Creation of General Relativity Early investigations As Albert Einstein later said. Newton's law of universal gravitation had been accepted for more than two hundred years as a valid description of the gravitional force between masses. although there is indirect evidence for gravitational waves. Within a century of Newton's formulation. General relativity has developed into an essential tool in modern astrophysics. In 1911. such as minute anomalies in the orbits of Mercury and other planets. This argument is called the Equivalence principle. gravitational lensing and an effect of gravity on time known as gravitational time dilation. such as gravitational waves. experiments and observations show that Einstein's description accounts for several effects that are unexplained by Newton's law. the basic framework was extremely successful at describing motion.[1] So in 1908 he published an article on acceleration under special relativity. Einstein also predicted the phenomenon of gravitational time dilation. the observed gravitational attraction between masses results from the warping of space and time by those masses. gravity was the result of an attractive force between massive objects. For example. he argued that free fall is really inertial motion. Many of these predictions have been confirmed by experiment. General relativity is also part of the framework of the standard Big Bang model of cosmology. even though Newton himself did not regard the theory as the final word on the nature of gravity. while a theory which from the outset prefers no state of motion (even accelerated ones) should appear more satisfactory. Although even Newton was bothered by the unknown nature of that force. direct evidence of their existence is still being sought by several teams of scientists in experiments such as the LIGO and GEO 600 projects. In the same article. the reason for the development of general relativity was that the preference of inertial motions within special relativity was unsatisfactory. According to general relativity. Under Newton's model. Before the advent of general relativity.

and the energy-momentum tensor. The field equations he published in October 1915 were .[4] during one of Eddington's lectures he asked "Professor Eddington. However. and in November 1915 Einstein published the actual Einstein field equations: . Einstein was trying to create field equations based on another approach. As related by Ludwik Silberstein. rock and even a vacuum should all have the same density. The development of the Einstein field equations When Einstein realized that general covariance was actually tenable. where is the Ricci scalar and the metric tensor. Eddington!" Finally. Hilbert did not press his claim for priority and some have asserted that Einstein submitted the correct equations before Hilbert amended his own work to include them.[3] Sir Arthur Eddington In the early years after Einstein's theory was published. Because the theory was so complex and abstruse (even today it is popularly considered the pinnacle of scientific thinking. Silberstein continued "Don't be modest. and so had Einstein very excited. unable to answer. In 1914 and much of 1915.History of general relativity 66 General covariance and the hole argument By 1912. he made a now-famous mistake. in 1913 Einstein abandoned that approach.[2] However. Einstein began by exploring the use of general covariance (which is essentially the use of curvature tensors) to create a gravitational theory. Eddington replied "On the contrary. arguing that it is inconsistent based on the "hole argument". This suggests that Einstein developed the correct field equations first. it was soon realized that they were inconsistent with the local conservation of energy-momentum unless the universe had a constant density of mass-energy-momentum. However. I'm trying to think who the third person is." . the German mathematician David Hilbert published them in an article before Einstein's article. he quickly completed the development of the field equations that are named after him. At the urging of Tullio Levi-Civita. in the early years it was even more so). This inconsistency with observation sent Einstein back to the drawing board. the issue became one of solving them for various cases and interpreting the solutions. With the publication of the field equations. it was rumored that only three people in the world understood it. Sir Arthur Eddington lent his considerable prestige in the British scientific establishment in an effort to champion the work of this German scientist. though Hilbert may have reached them later independently (or even learned of them afterwards through his correspondence with Einstein). you must be one of three persons in the world who understands general relativity. However. Einstein was actively seeking a theory in which gravitation was explained as a geometric phenomenon. Einstein and Hilbert Although Einstein is credited with finding the field equations. others have criticized those assertions. This predicted the non-Newtonian perihelion precession of Mercury. When that approach was proven to be inconsistent. the solution was all but obvious. This has resulted in accusations of plagiarism against Einstein (never from Hilbert). though probably apocryphal. In other words. and assertions that the field equations should be called the "Einstein-Hilbert field equations". However. This and experimental verification have dominated general relativity research ever since. There was an illuminating. Einstein revisited the concept of general covariance and discovered that the hole argument was flawed. anecdote about this. air. However." Eddington paused. where is the Ricci tensor.

and Einstein did not believe that singularities could be real. see the Tests of general relativity article. referring to it as "the biggest blunder in my career". Additionally. Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington's 1919 expedition in which he confirmed Einstein's prediction for the deflection of light by the Sun during the total solar eclipse of May 29. Einstein assumed that they were insoluble. However. As for Brans-Dicke (which has a tunable parameter ω such that ω = ∞ is the same as general relativity). and Rosen's bimetric theory. Alexander Friedmann found a solution in which the universe may expand or contract. The Kerr-Newman solution for a rotating. This resulted in Einstein dropping the cosmological constant. 1919 helped to cement the status of general relativity as a likely true theory.History of general relativity 67 Solutions The Schwarzschild solution Since the field equations are non-linear. More exact solutions Progress in solving the field equations and understanding the solutions has been ongoing. The solution for a spherically symmetric charged object was discovered by Reissner and later rediscovered by Nordström. The black hole aspect of the Schwarzschild solution was very controversial. he added a cosmological constant Λ to the field equations. Edwin Hubble found evidence for the idea that the universe is expanding. Since then many observations have confirmed the correctness of general relativity. However. However. This permitted the creation of steady-state solutions. However. Alternative theories Finally. Martin Kruskal published a proof that black holes are called for by the Schwarzschild Solution. This is now known as the Schwarzschild solution. The most famous of these are the Brans-Dicke theory (also known as scalar-tensor theory). and both suffer from these changes permitting the presence of bipolar gravitational radiation. which became . In 1929. At the time. many other exact solutions have been found. and even the GPS system. and later Georges Lemaître derived a solution for an expanding universe. charged massive object was published a few years later. These include studies of binary pulsars. in 1916 Karl Schwarzschild discovered an exact solution for the case of a spherically symmetric spacetime surrounding a massive object in spherical coordinates. and is called the Reissner-Nordström solution. Since then. The expanding universe and the cosmological constant In 1922. there have been various attempts through the years to find modifications to general relativity. . in 1957 (two years after Einstein's death in 1955). For more information. Both of these theories proposed changes to the field equations. observations of radio signals passing the limb of the Sun. As a result. the amount by which it can differ from general relativity has been severely constrained by these observations. Testing the theory The perihelion precession of Mercury was the first evidence that general relativity is correct. the solution for a rotating massive object was obtained by Kerr in the 1960s and is called the Kerr solution. as it was only intended to justify one result (a static universe). and since a static cosmology was not supported by the general relativistic field equations. Rosen's original theory has been refuted by observations of binary pulsars. Einstein believed that the universe was apparently static. but they were unstable: the slightest perturbation of a static state would result in the universe expanding or contracting. it was an ad hoc hypothesis to add in the cosmological constant.

in which case the existence of the ether is a metaphysical question.. Poincaré argued that experiments like that of Michelson-Morley show that it seems to be impossible to detect the absolute motion of matter or the relative motion of matter in relation to the ether.[3] • Hermann Minkowski showed in 1907 that the theory of special relativity could be elegantly described using a four-dimensional spacetime.

Poincaré distinguished between "local" or "apparent" time of moving clocks. i. he also stated that we do not know if this principle will turn out to be true. He derived this interpretation from Lorentz's 'theory of electrons' which incorporated Maxwell's radiation pressure. However. • In 1905 Einstein was the first to suggest that when a material body lost energy (either radiation or heat) of amount . are not simultaneous in another frame.

He was the first to argue that those principles (along with certain other basic assumptions about the homogeneity and isotropy of space. which are simultaneous in one frame of reference. that the results of the paper are in agreement with Lorentz's electrodynamics. Poincaré published a paper in which he said that radiation could be considered as a fictitious fluid with an equivalent mass of . but that it is interesting to determine what the principle implies.

None of them fully understood the physical implications of these transformations. T. Cohn. Lorentz and Larmor had most of the Lorentz transformations. 75 Special Relativity Historians of special relativity In his History of the theories of ether and electricity from 1953.[14] Lorentz appreciated the Palermo paper (1906)[15] of Poincaré on relativity. But they argue that it was Einstein who completely eliminated the classical ether and demonstrated the relativity of space and time. and continued (like Lorentz) to distinguish between "real" lengths and times measured by observers at rest within the aether.

Poincaré In a paper that was written in 1914 and published in 1921. They admit that Lorentz and Poincaré developed the mathematics of special relativity.[7] There are a large number of opinions related to these involving questions of "who should get the credit" . They also argue that Poincaré demonstrated the relativity of space and time only in his philosophical writings.] I have not established the principle of relativity as rigorously and universally true. E. and he has formulated 'the postulate of relativity'.[9] [10] [11] [12] Darrigol summarizes: Most of the components of Einstein's paper appeared in others' anterior works on the electrodynamics of moving bodies. John Stachel. Poincaré had them all.

t' we must work with these variables exactly as we could do with x. t' plays the same part as t. and probably resulted from his earlier publications in the Annalen in this field. that no experiment will ever be able to determine whether a body is at rest or in absolute motion either in relation to absolute space or even in relation to the ether. if we want to describe phenomena in terms of x'.90]: My guess is that it has to do with the fact that Einstein made the physical interpretation of the Lorentz transformation the basis for a remarkably clear and simple discussion of the electrodynamics of moving bodies. that the mass of a body is not a constant. We continue to believe that no body in motion will ever be able to exceed the speed of light. z. z'.[20] but not in connection with special relativity. 321]: The chief cause of my failure was my clinging to the idea that the variable t only can be considered as the true time and that my local time t' must be regarded as no more than an auxiliary mathematical quantity. from the fundamental equations of the electromagnetic field. 230]: the chief difference [is] that Einstein simply postulates what we have deduced. with some difficulty and not altogether satisfactorily. y'. whereas Poincaré’s remarks on the physical interpretation of Lorentz transformed quantities may have struck Lorentz as inconsequential philosophical asides in expositions that otherwise closely followed his own.mainly [22] on the theory of heat . Jürgen Renn. [p. So the theory of relativity is really solely Einstein's work. His work is in this respect independent of the previous theories. I also have a sense that Lorentz found Einstein’s physically very intuitive approach more appealing than Poincaré’s rather abstract but mathematically more elegant approach. ” Regarding the fact.Relativity priority dispute 76 “ [p. It is also known[26] that he read Poincaré's 1902-book „Science and hypothesis“ before 1905. but he recognized that this principle together with the principle of relativity makes the ether useless and leads to special relativity. This activity started in 1905. y. ” And at a conference on the Michelson-Morley experiment in 1927 at which Lorentz and Michelson were present. the mechanics of Lorentz endures. ” Einstein It is now known that Einstein was well aware of the scientific research of his time. but depends on its speed and the angle formed by this speed with the force which acts upon the body. in 1912 Poincaré raises the question whether "the mechanics of Lorentz" will still exist after the development of the quantum theory. Janssen comments:[18] “ [p.thus demonstrating an impressive mastery of the contemporary literature. time. For example." And in 1910[24] and 1912[25] Einstein explained that he borrowed the principle of the constancy of light from Lorentz's immobile ether. which included: • philosophical assessments on the relativity of space. on the contrary. He wrote:[20] “ In all instances in which it differs from that of Newton. Director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science wrote on Einstein's contributions to the Annalen der Physik:[21] “ The Annalen also served as a source of modest additional income for Einstein. t. and c) the relativistic transformation law for charge density.

Going by his publications between 1900 and early 1905. and simultaneity • the definition of the principle of relativity and the opinion that a violation of that principle can never be detected • the possible non-existence of the ether . who wrote more than twenty reports for its Beiblätter . In Einstein's theory. Lorentz then replied:[19] “ I considered my time transformation only as a heuristic working hypothesis. ” Einstein wrote in 1907[23] that one needed only to realize that an auxiliary quantity that was introduced by Lorentz and that he called "local time" can simply be defined as "time. b) the reciprocity of the Lorentz transformation. Michelson suggested that Lorentz was the initiator of the theory of relativity. that in this book Lorentz only mentioned Einstein and not Poincaré in connection with a) the synchronisation by light signals. ” Poincaré Poincaré attributed the development of the new mechanics almost entirely to Lorentz. He only mentioned Einstein in connection with the photoelectric effect. And there can be no doubt that he would have conceived it even if the work of all his predecessors in the theory of this field had not been done at all. one would conclude that Einstein's specialty was thermodynamics.

Concerning myself. maybe because his biographer Pais in 1950 sent him a copy of Poincarè's Palermo paper. but applied to matter and electromagnetism as well as gravity. since no one disputes that Hilbert had his own "theory". 1916 letter to Schwarzschild. if we regard its development in retrospect. nor the consecutive investigations by Poincaré. .

Einstein was not the first to discover the correct form of the law of warpage[. These statements of course do not have any particular bearing on the matter at issue. ” General Relativity Did Hilbert claim priority for parts of General Relativity? Kip Thorne concludes.[28] but not in connection with the Lorentz transformation.". Einstein refers to Poincaré in connection with the inertia of energy in 1906[27] and the non-Euclidean geometry in 1921. obviously to distinguish them from the Entwerf theory of 1913 and the preliminary papers prior to the end of November 1915 when Einstein published the equations of general relativity in their final form.

Relativity priority dispute and Einstein, basing their work largely on a recently discovered pre-print of Hilbert's paper. A discussion of the controversy around this paper is given below. Those who contend that Einstein's paper was motivated by the information obtained from Hilbert have referred to the following sources: • The correspondence between Hilbert and Einstein mentioned above. More recently, it became known that Einstein was also given notes of Hilbert's November 16 talk about his theory[39] . • Einstein's November 18 paper on the perihelion motion of Mercury, which still refers to the incomplete field equations of November 4 and 11. (The perihelion motion depends only on the vacuum equations, which are unaffected by the trace term that was added to complete the field equations.) Reference to the final form of the equations appears only in a footnote added to the paper, indicating that Einstein had not known the final form of the equations on November 18. This is not controversial, and is consistent with the well-known fact that Einstein did not complete the field equations (with the trace term) until November 25. • Letters of Hilbert, Einstein, and other scientists may be used in attempts to make guesses about the content of Hilbert's letter to Einstein, which is not preserved, or of Hilbert's lecture in Göttingen on November 16. Those who contend that Einstein's work takes priority over Hilberts [Cor97], or that both authors did their work independently [Tod06] have used the following arguments: • Hilbert modified his paper in December 1915, and the November 18 version sent to Einstein did not contain the final form of the field equations. The extant part of the printer proofs does not have the explicit field equations. This is the point of view defended by Corry, Renn, Stachel, and Sauer. • Sauer (1999) and Todorov (2005) agree with Corry, Renn and Satchel that Hilbert's proofs show that Hilbert had originally presented a non-covariant theory, which was dropped from the revised paper. Corry et al. quote from the proofs: "Since our mathematical theorem ... can provide only ten essentially independent equations for the 14 potentials [...] and further, maintaining general covariance makes quite impossible more than ten essential independent equations [...] then, in order to keep the deterministic characteristic of the fundamental equations of physics [...] four further non-covariant equations ... [are] unavoidable." (proofs, pages 3 and 4. Corry et al.) Hilbert derives these four extra equations and continues "these four differential equations [...] supplement the gravitational equations [...] to yield a system of 14 equations for the 14 potentials , : the system of fundamental equations of physics". (proofs, page 7. Corry et al.). Hilbert's first theory (lecture Nov 16, lecture Nov 20, proofs Dec 6) was titled "The fundamental equations of Physics". In proposing non-covariant fundamental equations, based on the Ricci tensor but restricted in this way, Hilbert was following the causality requirement that Einstein and Grassman had introduced in the Entwurf papers of 1913 (Sauer, 1999). • One may attempt to reconstruct the way in which Einstein may have arrived at the field equations independently. This is, for instance, done in the paper of Logunov, Mestvirishvili and Petrov quoted below [Log04]. Renn and Sauer [Ren96] investigate the notebook used by Einstein in 1912 and claim he was close to the correct theory at that time.

**Sir Edmund Whittaker (1954)

In 1954 Sir Edmund Taylor Whittaker, an English mathematician and historian of science, credited Poincaré with the equation , and he included a chapter entitled The Relativity Theory of Poincaré and Lorentz in his book A History of the Theories of Aether and Electricity (1954). He credited Poincaré and Lorentz, and attributed to Einstein's relativity paper only little importance. Whittaker also stated that David Hilbert had derived the theory of General Relativity from an elegant variational principle nearly simultaneously with Einstein's discovery of the

G. H. Keswani (1965)

In a 1965 series of articles tracing the history of relativity [Kes65], Keswani claimed that Poincaré and Lorentz should have the main credit for special relativity - claiming that Poincaré pointedly credited Lorentz multiple times, while Lorentz credited Poincaré and Einstein, refusing to take credit for himself. He also downplayed the theory of general relativity, saying "Einstein's general theory of relativity is only a theory of gravitation and of modifications in the laws of physics in gravitational fields".[40] . This would leave the special theory of relativity as the unique theory of relativity. Keswani cited also Vladimir Fock for this same opinion. This series of articles prompted responses, among others from Herbert Dingle and Karl Popper. Dingle said, among other things, ".. the 'principle of relativity' had various meanings, and the theories associated with it were quite distinct; they were not different forms of the same theory. Each of the three protagonists.... was very well aware of the others .... but each preferred his own views"[41] Karl Popper says "Though Einstein appears to have known Poincaré's Science and Hypothesis prior to 1905, there is no theory like Einstein's in this great book."[42] Keswani did not accept the criticism, and replied in two letters also published in the same journal ([Kes66a] and [Kes66b]) - in his reply to Dingle, he argues that the three relativity theories were at heart the same: ".. they meant much that was common. And that much mattered the most."[43] Dingle commented the year after on the history of crediting: "Until the first World War, Lorentz's and Einstein's theories were regarded as different forms of the same idea, but Lorentz, having priority and being a more established figure speaking a more familiar language, was credited with it." (Dingle 1967, Nature 216 p. 119-122).

**Albrecht Folsing on the Hilbert-Einstein interaction (1998)
**

From Folsing's 1998 Einstein biography (footnote references in the quote are from the original text and the actual notes are not reproduced here): During the decisive phase Einstein even had a congenial colleague, though this caused him more annoyance than joy, as it seemed to threaten his primacy. "Only one colleague truly understood it, and he now tries skillfully to appropriate it."29 he complained to Zangger about what he evidently regarded as an attempt at plagiarism. This colleague was none other than David Hilbert, with whom, as recently as the summer, Einstein had been "absolutely delighted." What must have irritated Einstein was that Hilbert had published the correct field equations first—a few days before Einstein. Einstein presented his equations in Berlin on November 25, 1915, but six days earlier, on November 20, Hilbert—had derived the identical field equations for which Einstein had been searching such a long time.31 How had this happened? David Hilbert had concerned himself intensively with physics for a number of years; had read everything about electrons, matter, and fields: and in this context had invited Einstein to Göttingen toward the end of June 1915 to lecture on relativity theory. Einstein had stayed at the Hilberts' home, and one must assume that the week he and Hilbert spent together would have consisted of dawn-to-dusk discussions of physics. They continued their debate in writing, although Felix Klein records that "they talked past one another, as happens not infrequently between simultaneously producing mathematicians."32 Hilbert was in fact aiming at greater things than Einstein: at a theory of the entire physical world, of matter and fields, of universe and electrons—and in a strictly axiomatic structure. In November, when Einstein was totally absorbed in his theory of gravitation, he essentially corresponded only with Hilbert, sending Hilbert his publications and, on November 18, thanking him for a draft of his treatise. Einstein must have received that treatise immediately before writing this letter. Could Einstein, casting his eye

Relativity priority dispute over Hilbert's paper, have discovered the term which was still lacking in his own equations, and thus "appropriated" Hilbert? This is not really probable: Hilbert's treatise was exceedingly involved, or indeed confused—according to Felix Klein, it was the kind of work "that no one understands unless he has already mastered the whole subject."33 It cannot be entirely ruled out that Hilbert's treatise made Einstein aware of some weakness in his own equations. Nevertheless, his eventual derivation of the equations was a logical development of his earlier arguments—in which, despite all the mathematics, physical principles invariably predominated. His approach was thus quite different from Hilbert's, and Einstein's achievements can, therefore, surely be regarded as authentic. For a few weeks relations between Einstein and Hilbert were clouded; at least, we know that Einstein was convinced that his Göttingen lectures and some of his other thoughts had—perhaps inadvertently—been plagiarized by Hilbert. It may well be, though, that he was somewhat mollified when he saw the printed version of Hilbert's treatise, since Hilbert, in the very first sentence, paid tribute to "the gigantic problems raised by Einstein and the brilliant methods developed by him for their solution,"34 which represented the prerequisites of a new approach to the fundamentals of physics. Thirty years later, Einstein told his assistant Ernst G. Straus, who in turn after another thirty years told Abraham Pais, that "Hilbert had sent him a written apology, informing him that he had 'quite forgotten that lecture.' "35 If that is what happened, then it must have satisfied Einstein, for just before Christmas he wrote to Hilbert: "There has been between us something like a bad feeling, the cause of which I don't wish to analyze further. I struggled against a resulting sense of bitterness, and I did so with complete success. I once more think of you in unclouded friendship, and would ask you to try to do likewise toward me. It is, objectively speaking, a pity if two fellows who have worked their way out of this shabby world cannot find pleasure in one another."36 The reconciliation worked so well that no one else seems to have noticed any friction, and a legend arose that there had never been anything but friendly feelings between Einstein and Hilbert.37 Hilbert, like all his other colleagues, acknowledged Einstein as the sole creator of relativity theory. (Source: Folsing, "Albert Einstein")[44] From the publication date of his book, it appears that Folsing did not know of the printer proofs discussed in [Cor97].

**Cory/Renn/Stachel and Friedwardt Winterberg (1997/2003)
**

In 1997, Cory, Renn and Stachel published a 3-page article in Science entitled "Belated Decision in the Hilbert-Einstein Priority Dispute" [45], concluding that Hilbert had not anticipated Einstein's equations. Friedwardt Winterberg, a professor of physics at the University of Nevada, Reno, disputed [46] these conclusions, observing that the galley proofs of Hilbert's articles had been tampered with - part of one page had been cut off. He goes on to argue that the removed part of the article contained the equations that Einstein later published, and he wrote that the cut off part of the proofs suggests a crude attempt by someone to falsify the historical record. "Science" declined to publish this; it was printed in revised form in "Zeitschrift für Naturforschung", with a dateline of June 5, 2003. Winterberg wrote that the correct field equations are still present on the existing pages of the proofs in various equivalent forms. In this paper Winterberg asserted that Einstein sought the help of Hilbert and Klein to help him find the correct field equation, without mentioning the research of Folsing (1997) and Sauer (1999) according to which Hilbert invited Einstein to Göttingen to give a week of lectures on general relativity in June 1915, which however does not necessarily contradict Winterberg. Hilbert at the time was looking for physics problems to solve. A short reply to Winterberg's article could be found at [47]; the original long reply can be accessed via the Internet Archive at [48]. In this reply, Winterberg's hypothesis is called "paranoid" and "speculative". Cory et al. offer the following alternative speculation: "it is possible that Hilbert himself cropped off the top of p. 7 to include it with the three sheets he sent Klein, in order that they not end in mid-sentence."

This work spurred the purely mathematical development of differential geometry. Early work The first attempts to provide a unified theory were by G. see Classical theories of gravitation. Theodor Kaluza. Hermann Weyl worked to generalize the Riemannian geometry upon which general relativity is based. there were four distinct approaches to field theory: the gauge theory of Weyl. some physicists have attempted to develop a single theoretical framework that can account for the fundamental forces of nature – a unified field theory. a large number of mathematicians and physicists. including extending the foundations of geometry and adding an extra spatial dimension. and he tried to exploit this by introducing a basic method for comparison of local . Bach also attempted to develop approaches that could unify these interactions. but was not yet fully involved in the unification effort. Lancelot Law Whyte. and attempted to incorporate electromagnetic fields into a more general geometry. His idea was to create a more general infinitesimal geometry.[1] [2] These scientists pursued several avenues of generalization. For a survey of current work toward creating a quantum theory of gravitation. This article describes various attempts at a classical. these theories were unsatisfactory. as they did not incorporate general relativity – in the former case. Classical unified field theories are attempts to create a unified field theory based on classical physics. along with those of Forster. Arthur Eddington. involved making the metric tensor (which had previously been assumed to be symmetric and real-valued) into an asymmetric and/or complex-valued tensor. unification of gravitation and electromagnetism was actively pursued by several physicists and mathematicians in the years between World War I and World War II. Weyl's infinitesimal geometry In order to include electromagnetism into the geometry of general relativity.[3] [4] However. Lancelot Law Whyte's theory based on the Unitary Principle and Eddington's development of affine geometry. and they also attempted to create a field theory for matter as well. In particular. and collaborated with Kaluza. Overview The early attempts at creating a unified field theory began with the Riemannian geometry of general relativity. He noted that in addition to a metric field there could be additional degrees of freedom along a path between two points in a manifold. These efforts. and R. Albert Einstein is the best known of the many physicists who attempted to develop a classical unified field theory. see quantum gravity. relativistic unified field theory. Mie in 1912 and Ernst Reichenbacher in 1916.92 Unified field theory Classical unified field theories Since the 19th century. since ordinary Riemannian geometry seemed incapable of expressing the properties of the electromagnetic field. including Hermann Weyl. Differential geometry and field theory From 1918 until 1923. Kaluza's five-dimensional theory. because general relativity had yet to be formulated. For a survey of classical relativistic field theories of gravitation that have been motivated by theoretical concerns other than unification. Einstein corresponded with these researchers. Einstein was not alone in his attempts to unify electromagnetism and gravity.

Classical unified field theories size measures along such a path. This prompted mathematicians such as Gauss and Riemann to investigate that area of mathematics. However. in collaboration with Einstein and Einstein's aide Grommer it was determined that this theory did not admit a non-singular. in addition to the metric g. Weyl's principle of gauge invariance was later applied in a modified form to quantum field theory. was merely provisional. which is more conventionally interpreted as due to expansion). Eddington considered that in the Einstein field equations for general relativity the stress-energy tensor .) Eddington emphasized what he considered to be epistemological considerations. Since the simplest cosmological model (the De Sitter universe) that solves that equation is a spherically symmetric. He was among the first to propose an extension of the gravitational theory based on the affine connection as the fundamental structure field rather than the metric tensor which was the original focus of general relativity. closed universe (exhibiting a cosmological red shift. which together gave rise to both the electromagnetic and gravitational fields. Like many other classical unified field theorists. Only Baranski's first book was published before his death. which dealt with non-Euclidean and higher-dimensional geometry. in terms of a gauge field. because it seemed plausible that the result of parallel-transporting one infinitesimal vector along another should produce the same result as transporting the second along the first. upon which this line of investigation based upon classical physics was abandoned by academia. resulting in difficult and high-order field equations. spherically symmetric solution. and the theory was ultimately found to be physically unreasonable. Affine connection is the basis for parallel transport of vectors from one space-time point to another. He also shared the hope that an improved fundamental theory would explain why the two elementary particles then known . Then Weyl carried out an extensive correspondence with Einstein and others as to its physical validity. Unlike Weyl's approach. it seemed to explain the overall form of the universe. and the extra dimension allowed for the incorporation of the electromagnetic field vector into the geometry. in what is now known as Kaluza-Klein theory. who planned a series of books based upon this theory. which represents matter/energy. but that was not as extensive a description as Boscovich's theory. 93 Kaluza's fifth dimension Kaluza's approach to unification was to embed space-time into a five-dimensional cylindrical world. This theory did have some influence on Einstein's later work and was further developed later by Klein in an attempt to incorporate relativity into quantum theory. Lancelot Law Whyte's unitary field theory This theory was based on an organizing process called by Lancelot Law Whyte the "Unitary Principle". Eddington's affine geometry Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington was a noted astronomer who became an enthusiastic and influential promoter of Einstein's general theory of relativity. (Later workers revisited this assumption. static. he thought that the cosmological constant version of the general-relativistic field equation expressed the property that the universe was "self-gauging". The critical mathematical ingredients in this theory. Eddington assumed the affine connection to be symmetric in its covariant indices. the Lagrangians and curvature tensor. for example. one of four space dimensions and one of time. Riemannian geometry was maintained. stationary. for which the mathematics had been only incompletely developed. Lancelot Law Whyte's ideas were adopted for experimental work by Leo Baranski. The history of this theoretical approach is: Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell worked from Rudjer Boscovich's theory. This theory was mathematically sound. Despite the relative mathematical elegance of this approach. and that in a truly unified theory the source term would automatically arise as some aspect of the free-space field equations. albeit complicated. This geometry generalized Riemannian geometry in that there was a vector field Q. The mathematics that Riemann developed was used by Einstein in his theory of general relativity. were worked out by Weyl and colleagues.

these fields are symmetric (in the matrix sense). and most physicists consider his attempts ultimately unsuccessful. particles appear as limited regions in space-time in which the field strength or the energy density are particularly high.Classical unified field theories (proton and electron) have quite different masses. this is related to a discrete (or "internal") symmetry known to Einstein as "displacement field duality". The Dirac equation for the relativistic quantum electron caused Eddington to rethink his previous conviction that fundamental physical theory had to be based on tensors. make it hard to connect such theories with the physical phenomena that they might describe. combined with a relative lack of good mathematical tools for analyzing nonlinear equation systems. the metric-affine theory was somewhat complicated.) In general relativity. Einstein tried to form a generalized theory of gravitation that would unify the gravitational and electromagnetic forces (and perhaps others). This suggests that a purely geometric theory ought to treat these two fields as different aspects of the same basic phenomenon. Einstein and coworker Leopold Infeld managed to demonstrate that. the symmetry requirement was relaxed for one or both fields. but since antisymmetry seemed essential for electromagnetism. such as quantization or discrete symmetries. certain configurations of curved space-time incorporate effects of an electromagnetic field. Einstein's proposed unified-field equations (fundamental laws of physics) were generally derived from a variational principle expressed in terms of the Riemann curvature tensor for the presumed space-time manifold. However.[6] In field theories of this kind. In particular. true singularities of the field did have trajectories resembling point particles. and Einstein believed that in an ultimate theory the laws should apply everywhere. Einstein became increasingly isolated in his research on a generalized theory of gravitation.[5] 94 Einstein's geometric approaches When the equivalent of Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism is formulated within the framework of Einstein's theory of general relativity. or putting it another way. Further. in Einstein's final theory of the unified field. For example. his pursuit of a unification of the fundamental forces ignored developments in quantum physics (and vice versa). guided by a belief in a single origin for the entire set of physical laws. but eventually centered around treating both the metric tensor and the affine connection as fundamental fields. the electromagnetic field energy (being equivalent to mass as one would expect from Einstein's famous equation E=mc2) contributes to the stress tensor and thus to the curvature of space-time.[7] . most notably the discovery of the strong nuclear force and weak nuclear force. These attempts initially concentrated on additional geometric notions such as vierbeins and "distant parallelism". which is the general-relativistic representation of the gravitational field. However. so very few physicists followed up on his work. the large-scale topology of the universe should impose restrictions on the solutions. ordinary Riemannian geometry is unable to describe the properties of the electromagnetic field as a purely geometric phenomenon. it has been suggested that the torsion (antisymmetric part of the affine connection) might be related to isospin rather than electromagnetism. The degree of abstraction. with particles being soliton-like solutions to the (highly nonlinear) field equations. singularities are places where the equations break down. (Because they are not independent. Unfortunately his descriptions of this theory were sketchy and difficult to understand. He subsequently devoted his efforts into development of a "Fundamental Theory" based largely on algebraic notions (which he called "E-frames").

It was the lack of any reason for an event that Einstein rejected. in 1905 he proposed that light sometimes acts as a particle which he called a light quantum (now called the photon). was dismayed by none of the elements that .[4] Bohr. but the reasons for the mechanics still needed to be understood.[1] Despite their differences of opinion regarding quantum mechanics. Finally. and their post-revolutionary debates were about making sense of the change. The photon appealed to Einstein because he saw it as a physical reality (although a confusing one) behind the numbers.[4] 1913 brought the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom which made use of the quantum to explain the atomic spectrum. The next shock came in 1926 when Max Born proposed that the mechanics was to be understood as a probability without any causal explanation. Bohr was one of the most vocal opponents of the photon idea and did not openly Niels Bohr with Albert Einstein at Paul [3] Ehrenfest's home in Leiden (December 1925) embrace it until 1925. meanwhile. He did not reject the statistics or probabilities on their own and Einstein himself was a great statistical thinker. but quickly changed his mind and embraced it. As though to prove his point. Einstein was at first dubious. Bohr and Einstein had a mutual admiration that was to last the rest of their lives. An account of them has been written by Bohr in an article titled "Discussions with Einstein on Epistemological Problems in Atomic Physics".[2] Pre-revolutionary debates Einstein was the first physicist to say that Planck's discovery of the quantum (h) would require a rewriting of physics. Their debates are remembered because of their importance to the philosophy of science. His later ability to work creatively with an idea he had so long resisted is quite unusual in the history of science. The quantum revolution The quantum revolution of the mid-1920s occurred under the direction of both Einstein and Bohr. He believed that much had been accomplished. The shocks for Einstein began in 1925 when Werner Heisenberg introduced matrix equations that removed the Newtonian elements of space and time from any underlying reality. He tolerated Bohr's model despite the fact that its underlying reality could not be pictured in detail because he considered it a work in progress.[4] Einstein's refusal to accept the revolution as complete reflected his rejection of the idea that positions in space-time could never be completely known and by the way quantum probabilities did not reflect any underlying causes. He did not like that a scientist had to choose between equations.96 Collaboration and conflict Bohr–Einstein debates The Bohr–Einstein debates were a series of public disputes about quantum mechanics between Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr who were two of its founders. in late 1927. Heisenberg and Born declared at the Solvay Conference that the revolution was over and nothing further was needed. It was at that last stage that Einstein's skepticism turned to dismay. Bohr disliked it because it made the choice of mathematical solution arbitrary.

such as position and velocity.[3] 97 Post-Revolution: First stage As mentioned above. implies the disappearance of the interference figure and the emergence of two concentrated spots of diffraction which confirm our knowledge of the trajectory followed by the particle. In order to follow his argumentation and to evaluate Bohr's response. In fact. it is convenient to refer to the experimental apparatus illustrated in figure A. As always. if the incident particle is deviated toward Figure A.Bohr–Einstein debates troubled Einstein. according to the principle of indeterminacy or that of complementarity. according to Einstein. He made his own peace with the contradictions by proposing a Principle of Complementarity that emphasized the role of the observer over the observed. At the passage through the two slits of the second screen S2. A beam of light perpendicular to the X axis which propagates in the direction z encounters a screen S1 which presents a narrow (with respect to the wavelength of the ray) slit. In the first stage. A monochromatic beam (one for which all the particles have the same impulse) encounters a first screen. by the law of conservation of impulse which implies that the sum of the impulses of two systems which interact is conserved. Einstein's position underwent significant modifications over the course of the years. diffracts. From the measure of the recoil of the screen S1. The successive propagation of the wave results in the formation of the interference figure on the final screen F. suggesting ingenious thought experiments which should permit the accurate determination of incompatible variables. After having passed through the slit. It is also important to note that any experiment designed to evidence the "corpuscular" aspects of the process at the passage of the screen S2 (which. The first serious attack by Einstein on the "orthodox" conception took place during the Fifth Conference of Physics at the Solvay Institute in 1927. and since it is only the interaction with this screen that can cause a deflection from the original direction of propagation. should not be accessible. the wave aspects of the process become essential. At this point Einstein brings into play the first screen as well and argues as follows: since the incident particles have velocities (practically) perpendicular to the screen S1. . in this case. one can deduce from which slit the particle has passed without destroying the wave aspects of the process. reduces to the determination of which slit the particle has passed through) inevitably destroys the wave aspects. it is precisely the interference between the two terms of the quantum superposition corresponding to states in which the particle is localized in one of the two slits which implies that the particle is "guided" preferably into the zones of constructive interference and cannot end up in a point in the zones of destructive interference (in which the wave function is nullified). and the diffracted wave encounters a second screen with two slits resulting in the formation of an interference figure on the background F. Einstein pointed out how it was possible to take advantage of the (universally accepted) laws of conservation of energy and of impulse (momentum) in order to obtain information on the state of a particle in a process of interference which. the wave function diffracts with an angular opening that causes it to encounter a second screen S2 which presents two slits. Einstein refused to accept quantum indeterminism and sought to demonstrate that the principle of indeterminacy could be violated. it is assumed that only one particle at a time is able to pass the entire mechanism. or to explicitly reveal simultaneously the wave and the particle aspects of the same process.

Bohr's response was to illustrate Einstein's idea more clearly via the diagrams in Figures B and C. Bohr observes that extremely precise knowledge of any (potential) vertical motion of the screen is an essential presupposition in Einstein's argument. which means that interference is not possible. a different type of interference. the screen would therefore occupy an indeterminate position at least to a certain extent (defined by the formalism). an extremely precise determination underscore the fact that the of the velocity of the screen. The effect of this averaging is that the pattern of interference on the screen F will be uniformly grey. and. if its velocity in the direction X before the passage of the particle is not known with a precision substantially greater than that induced by the recoil (that is. The mobile the determination of its motion after the passage of the particle would not give the window is evidenced in order to information we seek. Before the the interference pattern. if it were already moving vertically with an unknown and greater velocity Figure B. for example. If the difference between the two paths varies by half a wavelength. In fact. the point d in figure A. if every particle passes through only the slit b or the slit c. if the particle in question has been deviated toward the bottom (top) and therefore we can know from which slit in S2 the particle has passed. for a certain fixed point F. If we imagine taking the measurement of the impulse of the screen in the direction X after every single particle has passed. a-b-d and a-c-d. It's obvious that any displacement of the first screen would make the lengths of the two paths. If Einstein is correct. but. process even begins. at point d there will be constructive rather than destructive interference. from the fact that the screen will be found recoiled toward the top (bottom). from the perfectly destructive to the perfectly constructive. attempt to know which slit a particle passes through destroys implies an inevitable imprecision of its position in the direction X. our attempt to evidence the corpuscular aspects in S2 has destroyed the possibility of interference in F which depends crucially on the wave aspects. it is possible to measure even an infinitesimal recoil. Bohr's representation of Einstein's thought experiment than that which it derives as a consequence of the contact with the particle). However. in principle. Once more. The ideal experiment must average over all the possible positions of the screen S1. then there is a violation of the principle of indeterminacy. then described above. 98 . when one applies the principle of indeterminacy. Now consider. In realistic conditions the mass of the screen is so heavy that it will remain stationary. there corresponds. On the other hand. we can know.Bohr–Einstein debates the top. we will still have an interference figure on the screen F. The interference takes place precisely because the state of the system is the superposition of two states whose wave functions are non-zero only near one of the two slits. for every position. Bohr continues. where there is destructive interference. then the set of systems is the statistical mixture of the two states. But since the determination of the direction of the recoil of the screen after the particle has passed cannot influence the successive development of the process. different from those indicated in the figure. the screen will recoil toward the bottom and vice-versa.

there exists a Figure D. It then happens that at a certain instant..the unambiguous use of spatiotemporal concepts in the description of atomic phenomena must be limited to the registration of observations which refer to images on a photographic lens or to analogous practically irreversible effects of amplification such as the formation of a drop of water around an ion in a dark room. it is convenient to refer to the experiment illustrated in Figure D. In order to comprehend this relation. it must be very clear that. in the path of a particle could introduce new effects of interference which influence essentially the predictions about the results which will be registered at the end. whose fundamental characteristic is that of obeying classical laws and which can be described in classical terms. contrary to genuine instruments of measurement. In order to have a wave which is limited in spatial extension (which is technically called a wave packet). for the understanding of this phenomenon "it is decisive that. Beyond the slit. such as .Bohr–Einstein debates 99 It should be noted that. there will be a wave of limited spatial extension which continues to propagate toward the right. On the other hand. The principle of indeterminacy applied to time and energy In many textbook examples and popular discussions of quantum mechanics. these bodies along with the particles would constitute. Bohr attempts to resolve this ambiguity concerning which parts of the system should be considered macroscopic and which not: In particular." Further along. . It is important to note that the wave nature of physical processes implies that there must exist another relation of indeterminacy: that between time and energy. which results in the propagation of a wave which is limited in spatial extension. several waves of different frequencies must be superimposed and distributed continuously within a certain interval of frequencies around an average value. the system to which the quantum-mechanical formalism must apply. it is essential to include the entire experimental apparatus. it is necessary to replace the first screen in Figure A (S1) with a movable diaphragm which can move vertically such as this proposed by Bohr. This ambiguity would later come back in the form of what is still called today the measurement problem. the principle of indeterminacy is explained by reference to the pair of variables position and velocity (or momentum). With respect to the precision of the conditions under which one can correctly apply the formalism. as illustrated in the figure. in the case under examination. In fact. Bohr's argument about the impossibility of using the apparatus proposed by Einstein to violate the principle of indeterminacy depends crucially on the fact that a macroscopic system (the screen S1) obeys quantum laws. in order to illustrate the microscopic aspects of reality it is necessary to set off a process of amplification which involves macroscopic apparatuses. Figure C. as Bohr recognized. A perfectly monochromatic wave (such as a musical note which cannot be divided into harmonics) has infinite spatial extent. Beyond the slit. A wave extended longitudinally passes through a slit which remains open only for a brief interval of time. such as a mirror. In order to realize Einstein's proposal. Assume that.. Bohr consistently asserted that. a ray which is extremely extended longitudinally is propagated toward a screen with a slit furnished with a shutter which remains open only for a very brief interval of time . there is a spatially limited wave in the direction of propagation. the introduction of any new apparatus.

we are to suppose that a photon. Einstein's thought experiment of 1930 as designed by Bohr. the phases of the various fields. It is easy to demonstrate that. are distributed causally and destructive interference is produced. His idea contemplates the existence of an experimental apparatus which was subsequently designed by Bohr in such a way as to emphasize the essential elements and the key points which he would use in his response. as we move far away from this region. that the shutter has remained open for a time where v is the velocity of the wave). Nonetheless. then the wave contains (or is a superposition of) various monochromatic waves whose frequencies cover an interval which satisfies the relation: Remembering that in the universal relation of Planck. from among those inside the box. escapes through the hole. following the explanation given above. at any specified point. In order to challenge the indeterminacy relation between time and . according to a precise mathematical theorem. frequency and energy are proportional: it follows immediately from the preceding inequality that the particle associated with the wave should possess an energy which is not perfectly defined (since different frequencies are involved in the superposition) and consequently there is indeterminacy in energy: From this it follows immediately that: which is the relation of indeterminacy between time and energy. During the opening. In this way a wave of limited spatial extension has been created. The shutter uncovers the hole for a time which can be chosen arbitrarily. see figure) containing electromagnetic radiation and a clock which controls the opening of a shutter which covers a hole made in one of the walls of the box. if the wave has a spatial extension equal to (which means. Einstein's box was supposed to prove the violation of the indeterminacy relation between time and energy. in our example. Einstein considers a box (called Einstein's box.Bohr–Einstein debates 100 spatial region (which moves over time) in which the contributions of the various fields of the superposition add up constructively. The region in which the wave has non-zero amplitude is therefore spatially limited. the indeterminacy relation just discussed was Einstein's target of criticism. Einstein's second criticism At the sixth Congress of Solvay in 1930.

After the release of a photon. who walked tranquilly. It's important to consider the impact of all of these exchanges on the people involved at the time..who. impossible to simultaneously determine the values of certain incompatible quantities. The "triumph of Bohr" consisted in his demonstrating. as a practical matter. while providing an appropriate description at a certain level. He rejects the probabilistic interpretation of Born and insists that quantum probabilities are epistemic and not ontological in nature. once again. On the other hand. with a mildly ironic smile. Leon Rosenfeld. The argument is therefore very simple: if one weighs the box before and after the opening of the shutter and if a certain amount of energy has escaped from the box. a scientist who had participated in the Congress. In order to obtain a measurement of weight. but even more so in the way that he arrived at this conclusion by appealing precisely to one of the great ideas of Einstein: the principle of equivalence between gravitational mass and inertial mass. the box would have to be suspended on a spring in the middle of a gravitational field. Therefore. paradox. a pointer would have to be attached to the box which corresponded with the index on a scale. The idea is particularly acute and the argument seemed unassailable. I will never forget the image of the two antagonists as they left the club: Einstein." and. At this point. at first. that it would have been the end of physics if Einstein were right. it gives no information on the more fundamental underlying level: . the box itself would have to be measured. in principle. weights could be added to the box to restore it to its original position and this would allow us to determine the weight. The variation in mass multiplied by will provide precise knowledge of the energy emitted.. the mass of the box can be determined to an arbitrary degree of accuracy. But in order to return the box to its original position. that Einstein's subtle argument was not conclusive. according to the principle of equivalence the uncertainty in the position of the clock implies an uncertainty with respect to its measurement of time and therefore of the value of the interval . Bohr showed that. it is necessary to find a way to determine with adequate precision the energy that the photon has brought with it. the product can be rendered less than what is implied by the principle of indeterminacy. Moreover. Since.The morning after saw the triumph of Bohr. For the entire evening he was extremely agitated. and he continued passing from one scientist to another.. the clock will indicate the precise time at which the event of the particle’s emission took place. From this it follows that knowledge of the mass of an object provides a precise indication about its energy. the box will be lighter. with his tall and commanding figure. full of excitement. described the event several years later: It was a real shock for Bohr. but the rejection that this implies that these quantities do not actually have precise values. the energy emitted can be determined with a precision as accurate as one desires. and Bohr who trotted along beside him. Einstein turns to his celebrated relation between mass and energy of special relativity: 101 . As a consequence.Bohr–Einstein debates energy. George Gamow's make-believe experimental apparatus but he couldn't come up with any way to resolve the for validating the thought experiment at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. seeking to persuade them that it could not be the case. the theory must be incomplete in some way. He recognizes the great value of the theory. in order for Einstein's experiment to function. since the system is immersed in a gravitational field which varies with the position. Post-Revolution: Second stage The second phase of Einstein's "debate" with Bohr and the orthodox interpretation is characterized by an acceptance of the fact that it is. could not think of a solution.. A precise evaluation of this effect leads to the conclusion that the relation cannot be violated. but suggests that it "does not tell the whole story. The inevitable uncertainty of the position of the box translates into an uncertainty in the position of the pointer and of the determination of weight and therefore of energy.

. 102 Post-Revolution: Third stage The argument of EPR In 1935 Einstein. the observer in A who carried out the first measurement on photon 1. The argument of EPR was in 1957 picked up by David Bohm and Yakir Aharonov in a paper published in Physical Review with the title Discussion of Experimental Proof for the Paradox of Einstein. however. just as electrostatics is deducible from Maxwell's equations of the electromagnetic field or as thermodynamics is deducible from statistical mechanics. based on an entangled state of two systems. It follows that photon 2 possesses an element of physical reality: that of having a vertical polarization. Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen developed an argument. at time t+dt. it cannot be done locally. Before coming to this argument. If quantum mechanics can be made complete in Einstein's sense. that the photon passes the test. should we live in a superdeterminist universe. In that case. can predict with certainty that photon 2 will pass a test of vertical polarization. 5) At time t. the system becomes: 3) At this point. in the spatially distant regions A and B and which are also in the entangled state of polarization described above: 2) At time t the photon in region A is tested for vertical polarization. Therefore. for example. the observer in A could have decided to carry out a test of polarization at 45°. which can be summarized as follows: 1) Consider a system of two photons which at time t are located.. he could have concluded that photon 2 turned out to be . we must conclude that the photon possessed the property of being able to pass the vertical polarization test before and independently of the measurement of photon 1. and Podolsky. as admitted by Bell himself. published in the magazine Physical Review with the title Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?. and I believe that this theory represents a profound level of truth. for the fact that it must be deducible as a limiting case from such foundations." below).. These thoughts of Einstein’s would set off a line of research into so-called hidden variable theories. The elements of physical reality which are objectively possessed cannot be influenced instantaneously at a distance. such as the Bohm interpretation. it is necessary to formulate another hypothesis that comes out of Einstein's work in relativity: the idea of locality. Title sections of historical papers on EPR. Suppose that the result of the measurement is that the photon passes through the filter. Rosen. the result is that. The authors re-formulated the argument in terms of an entangled state of two particles. but I also believe that the restriction to laws of a statistical nature will turn out to be transitory. 4) According to the assumption of locality.Without doubt quantum mechanics has grasped an important fragment of the truth and will be a paragon for all future fundamental theories. without doing anything else that could disturb the system or the other photon ("assumption (R). According to the reduction of the wave packet. obtaining a certain result.Bohr–Einstein debates I have the greatest consideration for the goals which are pursued by the physicists of the latest generation which go under the name of quantum mechanics. this fact was demonstrated by John Stewart Bell with the formulation of Bell's inequality in 1964. in an attempt to complete the edifice of quantum theory. it cannot have been the action carried out in A which created this element of reality for photon 2. that demonstration would not be valid. respectively.

. only the part of the system in A can be disturbed by the process of measurement and that. What does Bohr mean. even at the microscopic level. Bohr attacks assumption (R) of EPR by stating: the statement of the criterion in question is ambiguous with regard to the expression "without disturbing the system in any way". These properties are incompatible according to the formalism. if one accepts locality. they are nevertheless possessed objectively by the system. five months later than the original publication of EPR. there are critics who. Although the majority of experts in the field seem to accept the Copenhagen interpretation. the argument of EPR obviously collapses immediately. . Naturally. making it completely clear that what really disturbed him about the quantum theory was the problem of the total renunciation of all minimal standards of realism..Bohr–Einstein debates polarized at 45°.. 103 Bohr's response Bohr's response to this fascinating and elegant argument was published.. Einstein further refined his position. it seems that photon 2. like Einstein.their arguments do not justify their conclusion that the quantum description turns out to be essentially incomplete. scientist-philosopher in honor of the seventieth birthday of Einstein. in this case no mechanical disturbance of the system under examination can take place in the crucial stage of the process of measurement. As John Bell later pointed out. But even in this stage there arises the essential problem of an influence on the precise conditions which define the possible types of prediction which regard the subsequent behaviour of the system. this passage is almost unintelligible. by the specification "mechanical" that is used to refer to the "disturbances" that Bohr maintains should not be taken into consideration? What is meant by the expression "an influence on the precise conditions" if not that different measurements in A provide different information on the system in B? This fact is not only admitted but is an essential part of the argument of EPR. possessed both the property of being able to pass with certainty a test of vertical polarization and the property of being able to pass with certainty a test of polarization at either 45° or 135°. he could have concluded that photon 2 turned out to be polarized at 135°.This description can be characterized as a rational use of the possibilities of an unambiguous interpretation of the process of measurement compatible with the finite and uncontrollable interaction between the object and the instrument of measurement in the context of quantum theory. believe that it has failed to provide a sensible and acceptable representation of reality (see Interpretation of quantum mechanics). this process provides precise information on the part of the system in B? Is Bohr already contemplating the possibility of "spooky action at a distance?" If so. even if it is not possible to determine these properties simultaneously and with arbitrary precision. that the acceptance of the completeness of the theory implied. if the photon did not pass the test. Post-Revolution: Fourth stage In his last writing on the topic. in the same magazine Physical Review and with the exact same title as the original. what could Bohr have meant by the expression "uncontrollable interaction between the object and the measuring apparatus". notwithstanding this fact. But quantum mechanics denies this possibility and it is therefore an incomplete theory. The crucial point of Bohr's answer is distilled in a passage which he later had republished in Paul Arthur Schilpp's book Albert Einstein. Combining one of these alternatives with the conclusion reached in 4. before the measurement took place. why not declare it explicitly? If one abandons the assumption of locality. this means that. quantum non-locality. Lastly. considering that the central point of the argument of EPR is the hypothesis that. which is absolutely central to our modern understanding of the physical world. Bell asks. 6) Since natural and obvious requirements have forced the conclusion that photon 2 simultaneously possesses incompatible properties. The debates represent one of the highest points of scientific research in the first half of the twentieth century because it called attention to an element of quantum theory. Alternatively.

Oppenheimer Oppenheimer convened a conference on the topic convened a summer study at the University of California. a new element which had only been discovered in February 1941 by Glenn Seaborg and his team. Berkeley physicist J. Oppenheimer and Robert Serber of the University of Illinois worked on the problems of neutron diffusion (how neutrons moved in the chain reaction) and hydrodynamics (how A few months after he was put in charge of fast the explosion produced by the chain reaction might behave). Robert Oppenheimer of the University of California. a physicist at the Metallurgical Laboratory. it was not yet to be relied upon.Manhattan Project 107 Acceleration of the Project With the bomb project under the OSRD. was assigned to help Oppenheimer find answers by coordinating and contacting several experimental physics groups scattered across the country.[8] Theorists Hans Bethe. Frankel. Robert this work and the general theory of fission reactions. the project leaders began to accelerate the work. John Van Vleck. so while plutonium was being pursued as an additional fissile substance. June 1942. To review neutron research. however.[7] John Manley. Felix Bloch. But at this point no reactor had yet been built. Stanley S. Nelson (the latter three all former students of Oppenheimer) quickly confirmed that a fission bomb was feasible. although it was considered theoretically possible. and was thus able to be created in a nuclear reactor. The properties of pure uranium-235 were relatively unknown. Emil Konopinski. Plutonium was the product of uranium-238 absorbing a neutron which had been emitted from a fissioning uranium-235 atom. Berkeley to take over research on fast neutron calculations—key to calculations about critical mass and weapon detonation—from Gregory Breit. During the spring of 1942. Edward Teller. Berkeley.[9] Only microgram quantities of plutonium existed at the time (produced from neutrons derived from reaction started in a cyclotron). as were the properties of plutonium. and Eldred C. in of nuclear weapon design. Arthur Compton organized the University of Chicago Metallurgical Laboratory in early 1942 to study plutonium and fission piles (primitive nuclear reactors). He asked theoretical physicist J. .

Oak Ridge. later reproduced as drawings in The Los Alamos Primer. At the bottom are "autocatalytic method" designs. Serber would later write). When the detonation wave from the fission bomb moved through the mixture of deuterium and tritium nuclei. Tolman). The Hanford Site near Richland.[12] The concept was based on studies of energy production in stars made by Hans Bethe before the war. Project sites Though it involved over thirty different research and production sites.Manhattan Project 108 The scientists at the Berkeley conference determined that there were many possible ways of arranging the fissile material into a critical mass.[15] In Serber's account. a primitive form of "implosion" (suggested by Richard C.[13] Bethe calculated that it could not happen. a report co-authored by Teller showed that ignition of the atmosphere was not impossible. rather than having specialists spread out at different sites across the United States. Washington. The fusion idea was put aside to concentrate on producing fission bombs. would have an explosive yield of 10 megatons. which could supply sufficient water to cool the reactors which would produce the plutonium.[11] Such a bomb. hundreds of times more powerful than the atomic bomb. The Tennessee site was chosen because of the vast quantities of cheap hydroelectric power already available (from the Tennessee Valley Authority) to power uranium enrichment processes. Teller also raised the speculative possibility that an atomic bomb might "ignite" the atmosphere because of a hypothetical fusion reaction of nitrogen nuclei. who "didn't have enough sense to shut up about it. was chosen for its location near the Columbia River. A number of the different fission bomb assembly methods explored during the June 1942 conference. Canada. Chalk River.[10] They also explored designs involving spheroids.[16] The conferences in June 1942 provided the detailed theoretical basis for the design of the atomic bomb. But Bethe was skeptical. Washington. Tennessee. Oppenheimer mentioned it to Arthur Compton. The Canadian site was chosen for its proximity to the industrial manufacturing of . Bethe refused each one. Richland.[14] However. they calculated. The simplest was shooting a "cylindrical plug" into a sphere of "active material" with a "tamper"—dense material that would focus neutrons inward and keep the reacting mass together to increase its efficiency (this model "avoids fancy shapes". As Teller pushed hard for his "superbomb"—now usually referred to as a "hydrogen bomb"—proposing scheme after scheme. which would use the explosive force of a detonating fission bomb to ignite a fusion reaction in deuterium and tritium. Enrico Fermi suggested it as a possibility to Teller not long before the conference. Ontario. Oppenheimer was convinced of the benefits of having a single centralized laboratory to manage the research for the bomb project. and explored the possibility of "autocatalytic methods" which would increase the efficiency of the bomb as it exploded. New Mexico. the Manhattan Project was largely carried out at four secret laboratories which the national governments established by power of eminent domain in four cities: Los Alamos. In the end. Considering the idea of the fission bomb theoretically settled—at least until more experimental data was available—the conference then turned in a different direction. It somehow got into a document that went to Washington" which led to the question being "never laid to rest". Hungarian physicist Edward "Ede" Teller pushed for discussion on a more powerful bomb: the "Super". only the "gun" method (at top) and a more complicated variation of the "implosion" design would be used. these would fuse together to produce much more energy than fission could. just unlikely.

Oak Ridge facilities covered more than 60000 acres (240 km2) of several former farm communities in the Tennessee Valley area. The Chalk River site was established to house the allied effort that was going on at McGill University in Montreal. The site was chosen primarily because it was remote and relatively unpopulated. He showed it as a possible site to the government representatives. Further. All the sites were suitably far from coastlines and therefore less vulnerable to possible enemy attack from Germany or Japan.. fruit orchards. The project originally was headquartered at 270 Broadway in Manhattan. the United Kingdom. The operations were kept secret until the announcement of the Hiroshima bombing and nuclear explosion.[19] The Broadway headquarters lasted little more than a year before it was moved in 1943.

A greater need was the construction of industrial plants to produce uranium-235 and plutonium—the fissionable materials to be used in the weapons. asked President Roosevelt to assign the operations connected with the growing nuclear weapons project to the military. "Development of Substitute Materials. they felt unable to distinguish between technical and personal preferences. Although they decided that a site near Knoxville. which were still relatively uncommon instruments in 1942. Fast neutrons could only be produced in particle accelerators. Estimating the explosive power required knowledge of many other nuclear properties. the difficulties in conducting studies on nuclear weapons at universities scattered throughout the country indicated the need for a laboratory dedicated solely to that purpose. The scientists needed to know the number of neutrons produced in the fission of uranium and plutonium. struggled to understand the proposed processes and the scientists with whom they had to work. With the need for secrecy in the midst of war. The title chosen by Gen. Marshall and his deputy. The Army Corps of Engineers selected Col. which were needed in other military projects. selecting a name for the project was difficult. researchers had to measure the neutron scattering properties of materials to find the best reflectors. the nuclear weapons work could not compete for priority with the Army's more urgent tasks." was objectionable because it seemed to reveal too much. By September 1942. neutrons back into the chain reaction before it was blown apart.Manhattan Project 111 Need for coordination The measurements of the interactions of fast neutrons with the materials in a bomb were essential. The need for better coordination was clear. Tennessee. The substance surrounding the nuclear material needed the ability to reflect. Vannevar Bush. James Marshall to oversee the construction of factories to separate uranium isotopes and manufacture plutonium for the bomb. Because of its experimental nature. Kenneth Nichols. in order to increase the energy produced. Col. would be suitable for the first production plant. Therefore. they did not know how large the site needed to be. Roosevelt chose the Army to work with the OSRD in building production plants. including the cross section (a measure of the probability of an encounter between particles that result in a specified effect) for nuclear processes of neutrons in uranium and other elements. Thrust into the new field of nuclear physics. Brehon B. . Somervell. The scientists' construction of the work and production plants were often delayed by Marshall's inability to obtain critical materials such as steel. and thus delayed its acquisition. the head of the civilian Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD). or scatter.

initiated the first artificial[25] self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction in an experimental nuclear reactor named Chicago Pile-1. and he was convinced such a man was needed for a project such as the one being proposed. Groves had solved the Manhattan Project's most urgent problems. Col. though brusque officer who got things done in a hurry. In the summer of 1942. General Leslie Groves (left) was appointed the military head of the Manhattan Project. Within a week of his appointment. Groves renamed the project The Manhattan Engineer District. Groves resigned himself to leading a project he thought had little chance of success. Groves was convinced Oppenheimer was a genius who could talk about and understand nearly anything. . or whose own projects were hampered by Groves' top-priority project. which is not suitable for use in an explosive device. hard driving.Manhattan Project 112 Manhattan Engineer District Vannevar Bush became dissatisfied with Col. Most of the uranium enrichment work was performed at Oak Ridge. giving him the rank necessary to deal with senior people whose cooperation was required. while Robert Oppenheimer (right) was the scientific director. Hoping for an overseas command. where a team led by Enrico Fermi. His forceful and effective manner was soon to become all too familiar to the atomic scientists. Marshall directed General Somervell to replace Col. to the surprise of many. A gun-type nuclear bomb. It is a rare isotope of uranium that has to be physically separated from the more plentiful uranium-238 isotope. However.3% of U-238. various physical methods were considered for separation. James Marshall's failure to get the project moving forward expeditiously and told Secretary of War Stimson and Army Chief of Staff George Marshall. At that time. Marshall with a more energetic officer as director. the world's largest office building. Groves vigorously objected when Somervell appointed him to the weapons project. His objections were overruled." Uranium bomb The Hiroshima bomb was made from uranium-235. for whom Fermilab is named. The first major scientific hurdle of the project was solved on December 2. Compton reported the success to Conant in Washington.7% of raw uranium and is chemically identical to the 99. Groves appointed Oppenheimer as the project's scientific director. beneath the bleachers of Stagg Field at the University of Chicago. Since U-235 makes up only 0. He had directed the very rapid construction of the Pentagon. Groves was promoted to brigadier general. The name evolved from the Corps of Engineers practice of naming districts after its headquarters' city (Marshall's headquarters were at 270 Broadway in New York City). He was widely respected as an intelligent. Leslie Groves was deputy to the chief of construction for the Army Corps of Engineers. the natives are friendly. DC by a coded call. "The Italian navigator [referring to Fermi] has landed in the new world. (Oppenheimer's radical political views were thought to pose security problems). 1942. saying.

though extensive laboratory testing was undertaken to make sure the fundamental assumptions were correct.S. Treasury reserves was used for coils. Initially the method seemed promising for large scale production but was expensive and produced insufficient material and was later abandoned after the war. Although uranium-238 is useless as a fissile isotope for an atomic bomb. Their method using gaseous diffusion was scaled up in a large separation plant at Oak Ridge. and in the Nagasaki bomb. A total of 70. at Oxford University. Fat Man. huge plants were built to produce plutonium at the Hanford Site.35 days) then decays into plutonium-239. which are absorbed by U-238. The method was so certain to work that no test was carried out before the bomb was dropped over Hiroshima. This method was implemented in Oak Ridge at the Y-12 Plant.S. the "bullet. Treasury. the bomb that was dropped used all the existing extremely highly purified U-235 (and even most of the less highly purified material) so there was no U-235 available for such a test anyway. Tennessee. During the war this method was important primarily for producing partly enriched material to feed the electromagnetic separation process undertaken in calutrons (see below). The bomb's design was known to be inefficient and prone to accidental discharge. . The project engineers were forced to borrow silver from the U. resulting in an explosion. The production and purification of plutonium used techniques developed in part by Glenn Seaborg while working at Berkeley and Chicago. Neptunium-239 (with a half-life of 2.000 pounds of silver from the U. 1945. which creates The basic concept of an implosion-style nuclear uranium-239. The uranium bomb was a gun-type fission weapon. it is key in producing plutonium. and its product was passed as the feed into the other facilities. which were effectively mass spectrometers. Also.45 minutes).Manhattan Project 113 One method of separating uranium 235 from raw uranium ore was devised by Franz Simon and Nicholas Kurti. rapidly creating the critical mass of U-235. and was returned after the project ended. U-239 rapidly decays to neptunium-239 (U-239 has a weapon. Another method—electromagnetic isotope separation—was developed by Ernest Lawrence at the University of California Radiation Laboratory at the University of California. in New Mexico (the gadget of the Trinity test). half-life of 23.[26] The fission of U-235 releases neutrons. a synthetic element. Actual pictures and details of the bomb's inner workings remain classified. Plutonium bomb The bombs used in the first test at Trinity Site on July 16. such as thermal diffusion and the use of high-speed centrifuges. One mass of U-235." is fired down a more or less conventional gun barrel into another mass of U-235. Berkeley. but there was an insufficient amount available due to war shortages. Operators at their calutron control panels at the Y-12 Plant in Oak Ridge. using uranium hexafluoride (UF6) gas as the process fluid. Thermal diffusion was not used to produce highly-enriched uranium. Copper was originally intended for electromagnet coils.000. but was used during the war in the S-50 facility to begin enrichment of the uranium. Other techniques were also tried. Beginning in 1943. were made primarily of plutonium-239. employing devices known as calutrons.

called "Thin Man". implosion had been entertained as a possible. A poor configuration. When the fissile atoms were packed closer together.[27] There would be no "Thin Man. This would release enough energy to disperse the critical mass with only a minimal amount of plutonium reacted. Tuck to use explosive lenses to create spherical. the scientists thought the uranium version. Pu-240 was even harder to separate from Pu-239 than U-235 was to separate from U-238. In July 1944. The chain reaction resulting from collision of the "bullet" with the target released tremendous energy. Even a 1% fission of the material would result in a workable bomb. 1944." Ideas for alternative detonation schemes had existed for some time at Los Alamos. formed from Pu-239 by capture of an additional neutron. so the critical mass would be assembled in much less time than it would take to assemble a mass by a bullet impacting a target. "early" neutrons from spontaneously fissioning Pu-240 would start the chain reaction more quickly during detonation. "Little Boy. the decision was made to cease work on a gun-type assembly for plutonium. Oppenheimer chose to pursue a design based on the April 1944 suggestion by James L. Initially. The gun method was further developed for uranium only. Once this was achieved. ." would require a relatively simple adaptation. but could only be created in very small amounts. On April 5. This made the Hanford plutonium unsuitable for use in a gun-type weapon. and the yield would be greatly reduced. or slow assembly. which was extremely pure. One of the more innovative was the idea of "implosion". Initial research on the properties of plutonium was done using cyclotron-generated plutonium-239. while most efforts were then directed towards rapidly developing an implosion system. A higher concentration of Pu-240. equivalent to only a few tons of high explosive. converging implosion waves. Within ten days. gave it a much higher spontaneous fission rate than U-235. The metal needed to travel only very short distances. equal to thousands of tons of high explosive. based on the measurements of spontaneous fission for Hanford plutonium. Using chemical explosives. The chain reaction of U-235 was slow enough that gun-type assembly would work. though unlikely. but also blew apart the critical mass and ended the chain reaction. method. the rate of neutron capture would increase. Fat Man plutonium. Emilio Segrè at Los Alamos received the first sample of Hanford-produced A mock-up of the plutonium bomb. he discovered a problem: reactor-bred plutonium was far less isotopically pure than cyclotron-produced [27] plutonium. The configuration of the critical mass determined how much of the fissile material reacted in the interval between assembly and dispersal. producing an explosion. but in a gun-type bomb made with the Hanford plutonium. The gun-type bomb worked by mechanically assembling the critical mass from two subcritical masses: a "bullet" and a target. development efforts were directed to a gun-type fission weapon with plutonium. reducing the resulting yield of the weapon. a sub-critical sphere of fissile material could be squeezed into a smaller and denser form. and therefore the explosive yield of the bomb. so no purification was attempted.Manhattan Project 114 In 1943–1944. would release enough energy to disperse the critical mass quickly. and the mass would become a critical mass.

New Mexico. code-named Tube Alloys[29] . Canadian and Australian scientists joined the Manhattan Project at McGill University in Montreal and at a new project site located at Chalk River.845 billion. 1945. After the MAUD Committee's report.[27] The required implosion was achieved by using shaped charges with many explosive lenses to produce the perfectly spherical explosive wave which compressed the plutonium sphere. under the supervision of Groves's deputy Brig. Gen. with living facilities for those working in the newly created community of Deep River. unknown to each other). It established civilian control over atomic development.[28] The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) was set up by the Atomic Energy Act in 1946 to take over the functions and assets of the Manhattan Project. This was a small start compared to the scale of a single TNT plant built in Pennsylvania which cost $128 million. shown above) and focused almost entirely on the problem of implosion. despite the waste of fissile material.4 billion in current value. and their motives were mistrusted by the Americans. Ontario. the entire Manhattan Project had been reorganized around building the implosion-type bomb. was started but did not have United States resources. (The Fat Man casing is also visible in the photo background. Because of the complexity of an implosion-style weapon. including at least two on the scientific team at Los Alamos. Similar efforts A similar effort was undertaken in the USSR in September 1941 headed by Igor Kurchatov (with some of Kurchatov's World War II knowledge coming secondhand from Manhattan Project countries. The first nuclear test took place on July 16. A British project. Consequently the British bargaining position worsened. Over 90% of the cost was for building plants and producing the fissionable materials. Thomas Farrell.) Cost of Manhattan Project The project expenditure to 1 October 1945 was $1. the British and Americans exchanged nuclear information but initially did not pool their efforts. was for only $90 million. an initial test would be required.

Ontario. it was decided that. thanks to spies. Oppenheimer gave the test the code name "Trinity". Collaboration therefore lessened markedly until the Quebec Agreement of August 1943.

seems to have thought he was proposing to Bohr a mutual agreement between the two sides not to pursue nuclear technology for destructive purposes. Sweet to inject 11 terminally-ill patients with uranium for their brain tumors. They had known each other well in Europe and were friends. The US government settled with the victims' families. prior to the war. before the United States became involved. another 61-year old man was injected with 71 micrograms of uranium per kilogram body mass. where he studied on the effects of the inhalation of uranium and beryllium through the "Rochester Chamber". Many German scientists in fact expressed surprise to their Allied captors when the bombs were detonated in Japan. Haigerloch explaining it to his fellow scientists (and hidden microphones) within days. Germany was far from having the resources for a Hanford-style plutonium bomb. Werner Heisenberg (by then imprisoned in Britain at Farm Hall with several other nuclear project The German experimental nuclear pile at physicists) almost immediately figured out what the Allies had done. The Nazi reactor effort had been severely handicapped by Heisenberg's belief that heavy water was necessary as a neutron moderator (slowing preparation material) for such a device. headed by Werner Heisenberg. and in Japan. even if its scientists had decided to pursue one and had known how to do it). It is believed that efforts undertaken in Germany. The Germans were short of heavy water throughout the war because of Allied efforts such as Operation Gunnerside to prevent Germany from obtaining it.[32] .[30] Details of this Division came out in Eileen Welsome's book The Plutonium Files. It was initially feared that Hitler was very close to developing his own bomb. Hodge attended a meeting where the experiments were planned in 1945. were also undertaken during the war with little progress. maintained that the partly-built German heavy-water nuclear reactor found after the war's end in his lab was for research purposes only.[31] :93 Hodge also arranged for Dr. and never quite forgave him for his decision not to flee Germany before the war when given the chance. paying $400. Niels Bohr and Heisenberg even discussed the possibility of the atomic bomb prior to and during the war. Werner Heisenberg and Enrico Fermi were all colleagues who were key figures in developing the quantum theory together with Wolfgang Pauli. This project and others similar led to civilian oversight after World War II. Heisenberg's message did not get through. and an AEC memo thanks Hodge for his planning and suggestions in the experiment. and both men gave differing accounts of their conversations at this sensitive time. If so. They were convinced that talk of atomic weapons was merely propaganda. Bohr recalled that Heisenberg was unaware that the supercritical mass could be achieved with U-235. Niels Bohr. However. It documented human experiments in which the subjects did not know they were being tested to find the safety limits of uranium and plutonium. and the Germans never did stumble on the secret of purified graphite for making nuclear reactors from natural uranium. and a full bomb project had not been contemplated (there is no evidence to contradict this. however. these subjects may have known they were being tested.000 per family. white 24-year old woman was injected with 584 micrograms of uranium.

Einstein showed that the photon carries momentum as well as energy and that electromagnetic radiation must have both particle-like and wave-like properties if Planck's law holds. His work was also the first to show that Planck's quantum mechanical law E=hν was a fundamental law of physics.[16] • In 1918.[3] providing further evidence that matter was composed of atoms.[2] Einstein in 1921. Its counterintuitive predictions that moving clocks run more slowly. a classical field theory of gravitation that provides the cornerstone for modern astrophysics and cosmology. Einstein developed the theory of general relativity. which was the first example of the general fluctuation-dissipation theorem and allowed a good estimate of the Avogadro constant. • In 1905.List of scientific publications by Albert Einstein 127 Chronology and major themes The following chronology of Einstein's scientific discoveries provides a context for the publications listed below.[5] In 1909.[1] Special relativity is now a core principle of physics.[7] His theory resolved a paradox of 19th-century physics that specific heats were often smaller than could be explained by any classical theory. and that the order of events is not absolute have been confirmed experimentally.[12] black holes. The energy released in nuclear reactions—which is essential for nuclear power and nuclear weapons—can be estimated from such mass defects. Einstein developed the first quantum theory of specific heats by generalizing Planck's law. Einstein developed the theory of special relativity. such as the dinuclear cations H2+ and HeH2+. and not merely special to blackbody radiation. and has been checked experimentally in many ways. Einstein proposed the existence of the photon. he had derived the Einstein relation for diffusion. Einstein developed a general theory of the process by which atoms emit and absorb electromagnetic radiation (his A and B coefficients). but the EBK method also gives accurate predictions for more complicated systems.[15] The famous Bohr model of the hydrogen atom is a simple example. which is the basis of lasers (stimulated emission) and shaped the development .[6] • In 1907 and again in 1911. this was a forerunner of the principle of wave-particle duality.[11] frame dragging. Its relation E=mc2 suggested that matter was a form of energy. and clarifies the major themes running through his work.[10] confirming its predictions of matter affecting the flow of time. which was the foundation of quantum theory. which was later verified by the mass defect in atomic nuclei. that moving objects are shortened in their direction of motion. • Likewise in 1905. an elementary particle associated with electromagnetic radiation (light).[9] General relativity is based on the surprising idea that time and space dynamically interact with matter and energy.[4] • Also in 1905. Einstein published the idea for the Einstein-Brillouin-Keller method for finding the quantum mechanical version of a classical system. which reconciled the relativity of motion with the observed constancy of the speed of light (a paradox of 19th-century physics). A few weeks earlier. Einstein developed a theory of Brownian motion in terms of fluctuations in the number of molecular collisions with an object.[8] • Between 1907 and 1915.[14] • In 1917.[13] and gravitational waves.
