Modern Physics Living Einstein Reviews Resources Teaching Einstein 2005 - The Einstein Year

A collection of links will soon appear here

The year 2005 marks the centenary of Einstein's annus mirabilis of 1905 and of the 50th anniversary of his death in 1955. The miracle year saw the publication of path-breaking papers on the light quantum hypothesis, Brownian motion and special relativity, including the introduction of his famous formula E=mc2. To celebrate this occasion, the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, in collaboration with the Albert Einstein Institute (Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics), Golm near Potsdam, the University of Berne, the University of Minnesota, the Harvard University, the Institute and Museum of the History of Science, Florence, and the Fundación Canaria Orotava de Historia de la Ciencia, Tenerife, will start a new online project called Living Einstein.

The aim of Living Einstein is to make material related to the work of Albert Einstein freely available on the internet. This material will include primary sources, scholarly articles, teaching material, as well as links to other Einstein-related websites.

We invite other interested institutions and individuals to take part in this collaborative endeavor. To contact us, please, sent an e-mail to

This preliminary site gives a first impression of the material and services that Living Einstein will offer.
