[Homework]20120502 阿尔伯特·爱因斯坦 Einstein—21
Einstein is still to present his theory of general relativity. The problem for Einstein is he hadn't finished it yet. In the fall of 1915, Einstein was hardly thinking about anything else. He was completely focused on finding the solution to a puzzle that had occupied him for more than eight years.
Einstein is trying to come up with these equations that will describe how space is curved. He is working deep into the night.
If you look closely, it's really trial and error. You are not seeing a mathematician who just , you know, throws his ideas, you know, perfect formulas onto the paper of the notebook. He cancels everything and says nonsense. This terms disturb, so he's a sort of talking to math. Sometimes he turns the notebook around and then he, you know, throws it away with disgust.
It can be a real blow when an idea you have been working on doesn't work out, this gutwrenching feeling.
Since discovering his math error, Einstein believes he is making real progress. His equations are nearly complete. He accepts the invitation to speak at Gottingen University, essentially a address rehearsal from the Prussian Academy.
Einstein is up at the board, writing his equations and trying to describe his problem.
In the audience, it's one of the greatest mathematicians of all time, David Hilbert.
Hilbert sits there and listens very carefully to Einstein. He thinks I can solve the problem. I can do it better than Einstein.
Though he is worried that you might get scooped, you become a little bit of paranoid, or sometimes a lot paranoid. This is always the feeling I have when I have a idea which is, well, if I have this good idea. That probably means someone else is going to have or, has had this good idea, too.
Einstein goes back to Berlin and Hilbert goes to his own office. And Hilbert sits there and thinks and tries to race Einstein to big prize of general relativity.
He was one of the greatest mathematicians of his time. A controversy between the two giants are giant physics and giant mathematics. Hilbert, the nasty guy here, who thinks he can beat Einstein, starts working.
