      Please make a video about John von Neumann. He was one of the smartest scientists of the 20th century in terms of raw intelligence. He was a polymath with a photographic memory who, at six years old, could divide two eight-digit numbers in his head and converse in Ancient Greek.

    • @FunkyKnight96
      @FunkyKnight96 หลายเดือนก่อน +3

      Geniuses of his era called him a genius. For example, George Dantzig, who accidentally solved two famous unsolved problems in statistics because he was late to class and thought they were homework. The story of von Neumann's genius goes like this:
      When George Dantzig brought von Neumann an unsolved problem in linear programming "as I would to an ordinary mortal", on which there had been no published literature, he was astonished when von Neumann said "Oh, that!", before offhandedly giving a lecture of over an hour, explaining how to solve the problem using the hitherto unconceived theory of duality.

      Couldn't get ??? Do you really believe that ??? I believe that the true behind of this is that , he was thinking that he is a genius ,that why deep inside hem was a type of pride , who did not allow hem to work for others , when all he wish it was that others to wark for his self . He was maybe little bit lasy also ,that why he was not very good at school too . But being lasy or become accidentally a genius is not the same think . We have in the ward a lot of genius inventers who was at school not very good a lot . But no one want to make them fill like genius, not even after death . Just enter on Google search and type Romanian inventors to see what they invented , than after that ask your self , why no one even mention their names , what may be the differences.

      It is a question for the collective West because it is about ignoring. Fortunately, Einstein's archives are still mostly located in the East, in Israel. In his early stage he was on good terms with the Serbian community through his first wife. You probably never heard that he got the idea for Str during a visit to Serbia and the Balkans. You should keep in mind that the United States met him for the first time only after his emigration and when he gained media attention from the national media there. The relations between Serbia and Germany at the beginning of the 20th century were better than the relations between Austria-Hungary and Serbia.

    The elevator animation is wrong. It shows the elevator moving with constant speed after a brief initial acceleration-that is, a real-life elevator.

    One thing I recall reading in Einstein's English version of "Relativity: the Special and General Theory" was a comment he made about children. He recalled that every school child (German) knew the speed of light. When I read that I thought the education system he grew up with was different than mine. I don't recall ever learning about the speed of light in elementary school and not until much later. If I heard it, I don't recall hearing it and it would only have been mentioned in passing. Whatever shortcomings Einstein attributed to German education, they were able to make some significant contributions to scientific thought and technological development and still do today. That isn't to say I didn't like my American education, I would like to have had both.

      I was born in 1970 and my father told me about E=mc2 when I was only 7. I was fascinated by this and then looked up the speed of light in an encyclopedia. Then of course facts like light taking roughly 11 minutes to travel from the sun to earth ect. learning things like this early can really open you mind.

    I believe there is somewhat an error in the "Einstein's Nine-Year Struggle to Find a Job" video.
    In 1905 Einstein published four, not five papers. The video says that there were two concerning molecules. (Wikipedia agrees with the "four" papers.) There was one paper covering molecules/atoms/Brownian motion and his doctoral thesis, which isn't always considered "a paper" and also had a significant error. It was also his second attempt, his first being in 1901, so it wasn't necessarily novel.
    His 1905 doctoral thesis is usually not included because there was an error in his calculations that was later corrected after experimentation showed that his value was likely incorrect. Years later a student provided a fix. It was also likely a revision and extension of his 1901 work.
    Einstein had another doctoral thesis in 1901 which was rejected/withdrawn, also concerning the kinetic theory of gasses, but that paper is lost to history.

    Don’t dismiss Mileva Maric’s contribution to Einstein’s work so easily. She did much more than type up his papers! The very fact she was the only woman classmate showed the extent to which she was valued in her own right. After marriage they had at least two more children but she suffered from severe post partum depression. I disagree that Mileva was ugly. After Einstein grew tired of her illness he left and married his first cousin. I would never call his cousin ugly, but her picture is readily available.

    Well, the Einstein-Szilard letter from August 1939 didn't cause much action in the US. The immediate consequences were a relatively small research program. In fact, it was the Frisch-Peierls memorandum from March 1940 (which in historical review already contained the schematic of a blueprint for the gun-type design of the atomic bomb) which led to the activity of the MAUD committee and the Tube Alloys project in the UK later on, way before the start of the Manhattan project. And it was Mark Oliphant (a guy from Australia, who was a member of the MAUD committee and who then primarily worked on the new RADAR technology, and who finally got lucky to have Rudolf Peierls sitting nearby in the same building (who could solve one or two difficult problems for Oliphant - despite the fact that Peierls and Frisch didn't posses security clearance at that time ;-)) visiting the US in August 1941 who reminded the scientific community in the US about the existence of the MAUD committee report. That report had been sent to the US before, but Lyman Briggs (director of the US Uranium Committee) had put that report into his safe. And had not shown it to any member of his own committee. There was meeting then on 26th of August 194 with Mark Oliphant and the Uranium Committee to discuss the issue. Finally, Oliphant met with his friend Ernest Lawrence on September 23th in Berkeley, where Lawrence did receive a copy of the Frisch-Peierls memorandum. And Lawrence then informed Robert Oppenheimer to check the figures. But this it not the end of the story. Mark Oliphant convinced Ernest Lawrence to convert his 37-inch cyclotron into a giant mass spectrometer for electromagnetic isotope separation. So, in the end, it was some guy from Australia and not the the (first) Einstein-Szilard letter who caused the action. IMHO, that famous Einstein-Szilard letter gets a little bit too much attention. Probably because of the name of Albert Einstein in it. ;-)

I can make no accurate predictions about anything with the two sentences you typed out. If you think you have a new intuition about how the world might work, you're going to have to formalize it into a physical theory involving equations that can be used by others to make accurate predictions about the world. until then your two sentences are of little use to anyone

It was first seen experimentally almost a century earlier but couldn't be understood theoretically in terms of the widely accepted Maxwell's formulations of electromagnetic radiation. Einstein applied Planck's still debated theory of light quanta to come up with his brilliant theoretical explanation.

    It should be noted, Einstein was fundamental in creating and, by his skepticism, shaping Quantum Mechanics. Plus he also used a statistical approach, just that he felt the future would find a more precise method, which has been fundamentally disabused as a notion. (IOW, his hope was a wrong gut feeling). Yet his contributions still rock quantum physics today, ie his proposed thought experiment proving causality or not. He felt it would prove causality, and it ultimately proved the opposite, a proof that HE provided the original concept as part author.
