In 1921, five years after the appearance of his comprehensive paper on general relativity and twelve years before he left Europe permanently to join the Institute for Advanced Study, Albert Einstein visited Princeton University, where he delivered the Stafford Little Lectures for that year. These four lectures constituted an overview of his then-controversial theory of relativity. Princeton University Press made the lectures available under the title The Meaning of Relativity, the first book by Einstein to be produced by an American publisher. As subsequent editions were brought out by the Press, Einstein included new material amplifying the theory. A revised version of the appendix "Relativistic Theory of the Non-Symmetric Field," added to the posthumous edition of 1956, was Einstein's last scientific paper.

We all make mistakes. Nobody is perfect. And that includes five of the greatest scientists in history -- Charles Darwin, William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), Linus Pauling, Fred Hoyle, Albert Einstein. But the mistakes that these great scientists made helped science to advance. Indeed, as Mario Livio explains in this fascinating book, science thrives on error; it advances when erroneous ideas are disproven. All five scientists were great geniuses and fascinating human beings. Their blunders were part of their genius and part of the scientific process. Livio brilliantly analyses their errors to show where they were wrong and right, but what makes his book so enjoyable to read is Livio's analysis of the psychology of these towering figures. Along the way the reader learns an enormous amount about the evolution of life on earth and in the universe, but from an unusual vantage point -- the mistakes of great scientists rather than the achievements that made them famous.

Physicists around the world celebrated the year 2005 as The World Year of Physics 2005, honoring the achievements in physics research of Albert Einstein. This booklet is dedicated to the World Year of Physics. In this booklet I refute the claims that Mileva Marich Einstein played an important scientific role in his research. Mileva Marich Einstein is of a Serb origin, as am I. I am a naturalized American of a Serb origin.I based this presentation on the available material.

The World Year of Physics 2005 honors the achievements in physics research of Albert Einstein, the worldwide known sad— eyed genius. In 1905 Albert Einstein had completed his doctoral thesis and published 4 physics papers, including his “Special Relativity paper.” The world of physics, and the world, in general, has been since changed forever. As the human race is stepping into the 3rd Millennium of the Common Era, the influence of Albert Einstein is ever stronger—the works of Einstein still play the major role in the further development of physics, and science and technology.
