Albert Einstein (1879-1955), was a German physicist of Jewish origin, later nationalized Swiss and American. He is considered the scientist and thinker best known and popular of the twentieth century.
As a physicist, Einstein made numerous discoveries, but the most important were his theory of relativity in which he reformulated the concept of gravity and the equation E = MC2, mass and energy equivalence formula that has been called "the most famous equation in the world"). In 1921 he received the Nobel Prize in Physics for its services to theoretical physics, and especially for its discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a fundamental step in the evolution of quantum theory.
Einstein published more than 300 scientific articles along with more than 150 non-scientific papers. His intellectual achievements and originality of thought have made the word "Einstein" synonymous with "genius."
