Albert Einstein was born in in Germany.
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 Albert continued his education at Aarau, Switzerland and in he entered the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich to be trained as a teacher in physics and mathematics.
Inthe year he gained his diploma, he acquired Swiss citizenship and, as he was unable to find a teaching post, he accepted a position as technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office.
During his stay at the Patent Office, and in his spare time, he produced much of his remarkable work and in he was appointed Privatdozent in Berne. In he became Professor Extraordinary at Zurich, in Professor of Theoretical Physics at Prague, returning to Zurich in the following year to fill a similar post.
He became a United States citizen in and retired from his post in Chaim Weizmann in establishing the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Einstein always appeared to have a clear view of the problems of physics and the determination to solve them.
He had a strategy of his own and was able to visualize the main stages on the way to his goal.
He regarded his major achievements as mere stepping-stones for the next advance. At the start of his scientific work, Einstein realized the inadequacies of Newtonian mechanics and 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 classical 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.
In his early days in Berlin, Einstein postulated that the correct interpretation of the special theory of relativity must also furnish a theory of gravitation and in he published his paper on the general theory of relativity. During this time he also contributed to the problems of the theory of radiation and statistical mechanics.
In the s, Einstein embarked on the construction of unified field theories, although he continued to work on the probabilistic interpretation of quantum theory, and he persevered with this work in America. He contributed to statistical mechanics by his development of the quantum theory of a monatomic gas and he has also accomplished valuable work in connection with atomic transition probabilities and relativistic cosmology.
After his retirement he continued to work towards the unification of the basic concepts of physics, taking the opposite approach, geometrisation, to the majority of physicists.

Albert Einstein received honorary doctorate degrees in science, medicine and philosophy from many European and American universities. He gained numerous awards in recognition of his work, including the Copley Medal of the Royal Society of London inand the Franklin Medal of the Franklin Institute in He died on April 18, at Princeton, New Jersey.Dec 11, · "My great hope is that this will be the last time we must fight for the education of our children.
Let us solve this once and for all." Join her movement to. Albert Einstein was born at a.m. on March 14, Albert was born into a Jewish family.
Hermann Einstein was born on August 30, in Wuerttemberg, a state in Germany. Hermann's brother Jakob and he founded a bed feathers company and a company for electrical engineering. Hermann died on. Only few know that Albert Einstein was also a practical man and invented a refrigerator.
The Einstein refrigerator is an absorption refrigerator which has no moving parts and requires only a heat source to operate - it does not require electricity to operate, needing only a heat source, e.g.
a small gas burner, suitable for poor countries and. Albert Einstein was a German theoretical physicist noted for his theory of relativity.
