Considering Einstein's paper on light quanta and the photoelectric effect, what did he really discover? How did it relate to Planck's discoveries? How does it show Einstein's imagination and creativity compared to Planck?
What were his other contributions to quantum physics? What were his reservations about quantum theory and mechanics? Was the cosmological constant really his greatest blunder? And what did he mean when he said that God would not play dice?
