2. Einstein's development of special relativity in his 1905 paper. Understand why his approach is not followed today. To read the paper click here: Special Relativity-how Einstein actually did it.pdf
3. How Maxwell derived his velocity distribution law. How did Maxwell derive his famous velocity distribution law, one of the foundational elements of statistical mechanics? As you will see, he used geometry and functional equation concepts to derive the law in only a few lines. To see how the gaps are filled in read the detailed paper here.
