Editor's Note: There is probably no modern scientist as famous as Albert Einstein. Born in Germany in 1879 and educated in physics and mathematics at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich, he was at first unable to find a teaching post, working instead as a technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office from 1901 until 1908. Early in 1905, Einstein published “A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions,” a paper that earned him a Ph.D. from the University of Zurich. More papers…

The Relationship Between the Electromagnetic Field Amplitude and its Frequency in a Single Photon

The current theory in physics states that amplitude, namely the amplitude of the electric and magnetic fields, is continuous. It is proposed in this paper that these two types of amplitude can be

Geometry of historical epoch, the Alexandrov's problem and non-G\"odel quantum time machine

The new quantum principle of a time machine that is not using a smooth timelike loops in Lorentz manifolds is described. The proposed time machine is based on the destruction of interference of
