Einstein's Annus Mirabilis, 1905

Gresham College
Professor Flood reviews the year that made Einstein famous as he published some of his greatest work: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/einsteins-annus-mirabilis-1905
In 1905, his 'year of wonders', Einstein published four papers of ground-breaking importance. First he published the work that introduced quanta of energy - a core idea of quantum theory. Next was a paper on Brownian motion explaining the movement of small particles suspended in a liquid. His third paper introduced the special theory of relativity linking time, distance, mass and energy while his fourth paper contains one of the most famous equations of all, E=mc².
