On this day in 1924, mathematician Satyendra Nath Bose sent his quantum formulations to Albert Einstein who immediately recognized it as a significant discovery in quantum mechanics.
Bose has been known for his collaboration with Albert Einstein in developing a theory regarding the gaslike qualities of electromagnetic radiation (see Bose-Einstein statistics).
Satyendra Nath Bose was born on January 1, 1894 in Kolkata. He is best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s.
Any particle that conforms with Bose’s statistics today is known as a boson.
Many scientific inventions have come from his work which includes the discovery of the particle accelerator and the God particle.
