## "Einstein´s errors, triumphs and misconceptions"
A
brief review of Einstein's contributions, both as a little known
experimentalist and a somewhat known theorist. These include, among other
themes, the electron's magnetic moment, the most famous formula of all times,
astronomical and cosmological lensing, the twin paradox in special and general
relativity, the equivalence principle, gravitational waves, the motions of
planets and stars, the inflationary model of the universe, and the least
understood of all substances: the cosmological constant. Not everything
Einstein published in many of these areas turned out to be right. Which does
not subtract much from his curriculum. |
