Is it possible that the most famous critic of quantum mechanics actually invented most of its fundamentally important concepts? Besides quantizing light energy and seeing its interchangeability with m... atter, E = mc2, Einstein was first to see many of the most fundamental aspects of quantum physics - the quantal derivation of the blackbody radiation law, nonlocality and instantaneous action-at-a-distance (1905), the internal structure of atoms (1906), wave-particle duality and the collapse of the wave aspect (1909), transition probabilities for emission and absorption processes that introduce indeterminism whenever matter and radiation interact, making quantum mechanics a statistical theory (1916-17), the indistinguishability of elementary particles with their strange quantum statistics (1925), and the nonseparability and entanglement of interacting identical particles (1935). It took the physics community eighteen years to accept Einstein's light-quantum hypothesis. He saw wave-particle duality fifteen years before deBroglie, Schroedinger, Heisenberg, and Bohr. He saw indeterminism a decade before the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. He saw nonlocality as early as 1905, presenting it formally in 1927, but was ignored. In the 1935 Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paper, he explored nonseparability, which was dubbed entanglement by Schroedinger. In a radical revision of the history of quantum physics, Bob Doyle explores Einstein's idea of objective reality to resolve several of today's most puzzling quantum mysteries, including the two-slit experiment, quantum entanglement, and microscopic irreversibility.
