This quantity comprises a variety of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures offered each year on the Israel Academy of Sciences and arts. added via eminent scientists and students, together with Nobel laureates, they conceal a huge spectrum of matters in physics, chemistry, lifestyles technological know-how, arithmetic, historiography and social issues.

This distinctive memorial lecture sequence used to be inaugurated through the Israel Academy of Sciences and arts following a world symposium held in Jerusalem in March 1979 to commemorate the centenary of Albert Einstein's beginning. due to the fact Einstein's pursuits, actions and impression weren't limited to theoretical physics yet spanned vast fields affecting society and the welfare of humankind, it used to be felt that those memorial lectures could be addressed to scientists, students and erudite laypersons instead of to physicists alone.
