This quantity includes a range of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures offered each year on the Israel Academy of Sciences and arts. added by way of eminent scientists and students, together with Nobel laureates, they disguise a vast spectrum of matters in physics, chemistry, existence technological know-how, arithmetic, historiography and social issues.

This unusual memorial lecture sequence used to be inaugurated by way of 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. for the reason that Einstein's pursuits, actions and impact weren't constrained to theoretical physics yet spanned wide fields affecting society and the welfare of humankind, it used to be felt that those memorial lectures will be addressed to scientists, students and erudite laypersons instead of to physicists alone.
