Mileva Maric was an exceptional young woman in many ways. In an age when most young ladies never dreamed of becoming scientists, Mileva traveled to Switzerland and studied physics. There she met Albert Einstein and married outside her faith. They had already spent many years together working on the Lorentz-Poincare theory of relativity. Mileva and Albert wrote to each other about their team work on the theory of relativity. Albert Einstein served as the sounding board for Mileva's ideas and helped her by scouring the scientific literature for the latest innovations in the theory. Their letters and other abundant evidence proves that Mileva Maric, Albert Einstein's first wife, collaborated with Albert on the production and publication of their most famous papers of 1905. Mileva submitted their paper on the special theory of relativity to Annalen der Physik. She may even have been the sole author of this article given that it was submitted under her name, not his.
I am producing a video introduction for this book and should have it up soon. I have been researching this topic for twenty years and this work contains my latest findings.
