  • Ethnic background
    Albert Einstein was born at Ulm, in Württemberg,Germany, on March 14, 1879. Six weeks later the family moved to Munich.

  • 3. Personal life and family history
    Albert Einstein was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879.
    Six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where he later on began his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium.
    Later, they moved to Italy and he continued his education at Aarau, Switzerland
    in 1896 he entered the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich to be trained as a teacher in physics and mathematics.
    In 1905 he obtained his doctor's degree.
    1908 he was appointed Privatdozent in Berne.
    In 1909 he became Professor Extraordinary at Zurich,
    in 1911 Professor of Theoretical Physics at Prague.
    In 1914 he was appointed Director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Physical Institute and Professor in the University of Berlin
    became a German citizen in 1914 remained in Berlin until 1933 when he renounced his citizenship for political reasons
    Went to America to take the position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton.
    Retired from his post in 1945. Einstein's gifts inevitably resulted in his dwelling much in intellectual solitude
    for relaxation, music played an important part in his life.
    He married MilevaMaric in 1903 and they had a daughter and two sons; their marriage was dissolved in 1919 in the same year he married his cousin, Elsa Löwenthal, who died in 1936.
    He died on April 18, 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey.

    1933 position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton
    retired from his post in 1945.
  • 5. Contributions to the science community
    his special theory of relativity stemmed from an attempt to reconcile the laws of mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field.
    He dealt with problems of statistical mechanics and problems in which they were merged with quantum theory
    He investigated the thermal properties of light with a low radiation density and his observations laid the foundation of the photon theory of light.
    Einstein postulated that the correct interpretation of the special theory of relativity must also furnish a theory of gravitation
    in 1916 he published his paper on the general theory of relativity. At the same time he also contributed to the problems of the theory of radiation and statistical mechanics.
    He contributed to statistical mechanics by his development of the quantum theory of a monatomic

    A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy? Albert EinsteinAny intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. Albert Einstein
