Of the trio of famous papers that Albert Einstein sent to the Annalen der Physik in 1905 only the paper proposing the photon concept has been unavailable in English translation. The American Journal of Physics is publishing the following translation in recognition of the sixtieth anniversary of the appearance of the original work. Physics teachers may take particular interest in the following aspects: (1) Einstein's keen awareness of the heuristic character of his new conception. (2) His… 
Analysis of the Jun Ishiwara’s “The universal meaning of the quantum of action”
Abstract Here, we present an analysis of the paper “Universelle Bedeutung des Wirkungsquantums” (The universal meaning of the quantum of action), published by Jun Ishiwara in German in the
Reappraising Einstein's 1905 application of thermodynamics and statistics to radiation
Einstein's 1905 application of thermodynamics and statistics to radiation, which led to the hypothesis of the corpuscular light quantum, is rendered uncertain by a lack of information as to how

Prolegomenon to a Proper Interpretation of Quantum Field Theory
TLDR
This paper digests technical commonplaces of quantum field theory to present an informal interpretation of the theory by emphasizing its connections with the harmonic oscillator, and argues that, in important respects, interpretive problems of Quantum field theory are problems the authors know well from conventional quantum mechanics.
100 Years of Einstein ’ s Photoelectric Effect
A century has witnessed the growing impact of three seminal papers written by Albert Einstein in 1905. Indeed it was Einstein’s “Annus Mirabilis” (Miracle Year!); never has so much been written in a
The Theory of (Exclusively) Local Beables
It is shown how, starting with the de Broglie–Bohm pilot-wave theory, one can construct a new theory of the sort envisioned by several of QM’s founders: a Theory of Exclusively Local Beables (TELB).
The universal meaning of the quantum of action
Commented translation of the paper "Universelle Bedeutung des Wirkungsquantums", published by Jun Ishiwara in German in the Proceedings of Tokyo Mathematico-Physical Society 8 106-116 (1915). In his
Hamilton–Jacobi approach to photon wave mechanics: near‐field aspects
TLDR
The Hamilton–Jacobi theory of classical point‐particle mechanics is reviewed, and an eikonal theory for free photons is established, and it appears that the ekonal condition contains complicated space integrals of the gradient of the eIKonal over volumes of near‐field domain size.
