Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) was a theoretical physicist, philosopher and author who is
widely regarded as one of the most influential and best known scientists and intellectuals of all time. He is often
regarded as the father of modern physics. He received the1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to
Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". The latter was pivotal
in establishing quantum theory within physics.
Near the beginning of his career, Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on the general theory of relativity.
