Beschreibung:

Albert Einstein is still an icon for most people even though many other great scientists of the twentieth century have had more direct impact on our lives than Einstein has. Einstein?s enduring public image has to do with the style of his science and social world around him. This book gives a glimpse of his science, philosophy, and his troubled personal life. Einstein once remarked "Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone." This book is written according to this belief and contains no equations or complicated scientific data so that even a layperson can have a close look at the genius of one of the greatest scientist ever born. Contents: Preface ? Family History ? Important dates ? Einstein?s Credo ? Einstein: The Person of the Century ? Einstein: His Early Life (1879?1904) ? Einstein?s Annus Mirabilis (1905) ? Einstein and the Mass Energy Relation: E = mc2 ? Einstein and the Special Theory of Relativity ? Einstein and Quantum Theory ? Einstein: 1906?1920 ? Einstein and the Nobel Prize ? Einstein?s Two Sons: Hans Albert and Eduard ? Albert Einstein: 1921?1933 ? Einstein and the Atom Bomb ? Einstein: His Pacifism and His Interactions with Gandhi ? Einstein: His God and His Religion ? Einstein and His Princetion Years (1933?1955) ? Appendix A: A Justification of the Mass-Energy Relation ? Appendix B: The Energy Liberated from the Sun ? Appendix C: Time Dilation ?
