Creativity of Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein, a well-known German physicist and mathematician, was
born in Germany on March 14, 1879. His unusual ability to mathematics and
physics began to show itself at a technical school in Zurich. At the age of
21, after four years of university study, Albert Einstein got a job as a
clerk in an office. But already in 1905 he made revolutionary discoveries
in science. He published three papers in the field of physics and
mathematics. In the first he explained the photoelectric effect by means of
Planck’s quantum theory. The second paper developed a mathematical theory
of Brownian motion. He presented his third paper on “Special Theory of
Relativity” to a physical journal. Einstein expressed his theory in the
equation E = mc2, roughly that energy equals mass times the square of the
speed of light.
All over the world scientists read the work with great surprise. Few
physicists understood its importance at that time. Everybody wanted to know
as much as possible about the author. In which institute did he teach? In
what laboratory did he do his research?
Einstein’s fame among scientists grew slowly but surely. For a few
years he lived in Prague where he worked as a professor. When he came to
Prague, he often told his students: “I shall always try to help you. If you
have a problem, come to me with it, we shall solve it together”.
He liked questions and answered them at once, for there were no
simple or foolish questions for him. He spoke much with his students about
scientific problems and his new ideas. His advice to students was, “Don’t
take easy problems”.
In 1921 Einstein got the Nobel Prize in physics not for the theory of
relativity but for a logical explanation of the photoelectric effect.
After the Great October Socialist Revolution in Russia Einstein
became a true friend of the young Socialist Republic. He.
