Einstein's quantum physics?
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, June 18 2012 @ 05:01 AM EDT
The foundations go back earlier than that. Wikipedia actually has a reasonable
summary of the development.

Einstein's quantum physics?

And the funny thing:

Quantum physics is derived from Newtonian Physics, rather than Relativity.

Einstein's quantum physics?
Authored by: marcosdumay on Monday, June 18 2012 @ 03:35 PM EDT
For some people, Einstein is viewed as the "father" of quantum
physics. He was certainly the single most important supporter of it at the
earlier times, with two papers he released at 1905, one supporting the
quantization of matter and another one (that won the nobel prize) supporting the
quantization of light. That last paper was what convinced almost everybody that
quantum physics was real.

Now, he wasn't the "creator" of quantum physics, that title going to
Plank, at the end of the XIX century. But not even Plank was quite convinced
that Nature really worked that way.

Einstein's quantum physics?

No. Bohr did (in a sense) "quantize" the "classical" model
of the atom (nucleus at the center with electrons orbiting
around it) with his postulates of discrete orbits for the
electrons, but Bohr's atom model is still "classical" and
not a quantum model.

Schrödinger and Heisenberg worked an quantum theories for
modeling atoms.

The "discoverer" of quantum physics per se (insofar as you
can "discover" a theory) is probably Max Planck, but many
people around that time contributed to it. The most
prominent of those is probably Einstein, who got a nobel
prize for his contributions to the quantum theory of light
in 1905.
