Einstein's Struggles with Quantum Theory: A Reappraisal by Dipankar Home, Andrew Whitaker โ€” Free book


This book presents an account of all aspects of Einsteinโ€™s achievements in quantum theory, his own views, and the progress his work has stimulated since his death. While some chapters use mathematics at an undergraduate physics level, a path is provided for the reader more concerned with ideas than equations, and the book will benefit to anybody interested in Einstein and his approach to the quantum.
