However the author also spends a lot of time delving into Einstein’s failings in his personal life, as a husband, as a father, and so forth.

Also, the information regarding other scientists and their theories which came before Einstein and helped him to solidify his thinking was helpful. Not only that, but his doctoral dissertation alone had over thirty math errors. Would recommend for scientists interested in diving deeper into the life of Einstein and his contributions and mistakes.

To inform the work of the committee we would very much appreciate receiving your help and advice. Some of it was pure antisemitism, ohankan Ohanian paints a more nuanced view of a genuine cultural struggle about what physics should be. This arrangement will initially last for two years, up to the end of Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.


Its still on my pile to be finished, but now on those nights when Ohanizn can’t sleep because of some problem of the day which I keep replaying, then I turn on the light and let Einstein’s problems put me to sleep.

Jan 08, Bookmarks Magazine rated it liked it. Daniel Cunningham rated it really liked it Jan 25, For example, in formulating special relativity he decreed, rather than demonstrated, that light travels at a constant risica in a vacum regardless of how fast you are moving relative to a light source. Ohanian dissects this and other mistakes and places them in the context of Einstein’s turbulent life and times.

The book does do some of that, which is why I’m giving it a positive rating. Einstein though greatly generalized the application of the ideas of special relativity to all of physics, while Lorentz applied his ideas only to electromagnetism. Unfortunately his last two decades were spent in search of a grand unified theory of all the forces of physics, at fisida time when this was wildly premature.

Einstein’s Mistakes: The Human Failings of Genius by Hans C. Ohanian

Abstract Keeping the exact general relativistic treatment of light bending as a reference, we compare the accuracy of commonly used approximate lens equations. Unlimited One-Day Delivery and more. Lists with This Book. Particle Data Group Phys. Michel rated it liked it Sep ohajian, The author rather gleefully catalogs every failing, plus some that I still would not consider “mistakes.

If the greatest physicist of the 20th-century and the second-greatest of all time, after only Sir Isaac Newton can mess up that frequently and still be lauded as a genius, I figure a few mistakes here and there aren’t going to kill me, either.

Apr 12, Captain Nemo rated it liked it. We also examine a realistic gravitational lensing case, showing that the precision of the Ohanian lens equation might be required for a reliable treatment of gravitational lensing and a correct extraction of the full information about gravitational physics. Winners write the histories, and now those people are largely forgotten, so this is interesting. Whenever he could, he’d partner with another physicist or a mathematician whose job it was to write the part of his papers that involved calculations — and in his later years, he employed assistants for the sole purpose of performing the complex mathematics his work required.
