Google released a special Doodle in honor of eminent Indian mathematician and physicist Satyendra Nath Bose, who made significant contributions to the fields of physics and mathematics.
Satyendra Nath Bose, well known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s, delivered his quantum formulations to German scientist Albert Einstein on this day in 1924, who recognized it as a key quantum mechanics finding.
Bose is claimed to have had Albert Einstein as a mentor.
Bose’s eclectic interests included physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, philosophy, arts, literature, and music when he was born in Kolkata in 1894.
Bose went to Hindu School in Calcutta and then Presidency College, where he received the highest grades at both schools. Bose served as a lecturer in the physics department of the University of Calcutta from 1916 to 1921, inspired by physicist Jagadish Chandra Bose and historian Prafulla Chandra Ray.
Bose published a study in 1924 that deduced Planck’s quantum radiation rule without using classical physics.
Bose received the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second-highest civilian award, in 1954.
