Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879, and died in 1955.
He was an American physicist and Nobel Laureate, also known as the creator of
the special and general theories of relativity and for his hypothesis concerning
the particle nature of light. He is perhaps the most well known scientist of
the 20th century.
Albert Einstein spent most of his youth in Munich, Germany, where his family
owned a small shop that manufactured electric machinery. He did not talk until
the age of seven, but even as a youth he showed a brilliant curiosity about
nature and an ability to understand difficult mathematical problems. At the age
of 12 he taught himself geometry.

and graduated in 1900 by studying

For two years Einstein worked as a tutor and substitute teacher. In 1902 he
got a position as an examiner in the Swiss patent office in Bern. In 1903 he
married Mileva Maric, who had been his classmate at the polytechnic. They had
two sons but eventually divorced. Einstein later remarried.
In 1905, Einstein received his doctorate from the University of Zurich for a
theoretical dissertation on the dimensions on the dimensions of molecules. He
also published 3 papers of central importance to the development of the 20th
century physics. In the first paper, Brownian Motion, he made a significant
prediction about the motion of the particles that are randomly distributed in a
fluid. These predictions were later confirmed by experiments.
The second paper on photoelectric effect, contained a revolutionary hypotheses

and radiation, and how they interacted
in some unified world picture. The position that mechanical laws are
fundamental has become known as the mechanical world view, and the position that
electrical laws are fundamental has become known as the electromagnetic world
view. Neither approach, is capable of providing a consistent explanation for
the way radiation (light for example) and matters interact. When viewed from
different inertial frames of reference, an interaction viewed simultaneously by
an observer at rest and an observer moving at uniform speed.
In spring of 1905, after considering these problems for ten years, Einstein
realized that the basis of the problem ...
