Einsteinís greatest discovery wasnít his work on relativity, but his contributions to quantum theory. By suggesting that light acts as both a wave and a particle, Einstein laid the groundwork for future advancements in the decades-long development of quantum mechanics. In Einstein and the Quantum: The Quest of the Valiant Swabian, Yale physics professor A. Douglas Stone examines Einsteinís correspondence, scientific contributions and early personal life. This biographical look at Einsteinís early career highlights his foundation in quantum mechanics, how it was received by others and what it meant for Einsteinís later career.
