formula for radiation from
Boltzmann's statistics. The paper, and his
method of deriving
Planck's radiation formula,
was enthusiastically endorsed by
Einstein who saw at once that Bose had
removed a major objection against light quanta.
Einstein's response to Bose's article
was that his application to the
University of Dhaka
for two years research leave beginning in 1924 was approved. Much
progress had been made by
Einstein following his receipt of Bose's
paper for he was able to see how the ideas could be taken forward.

Einstein and submitted with a strong
recommendation to the Zeitschrift für Physik.
Einstein extended Bose's treatment to
material particles whose number is conserved and published several
papers on this extension.

name is rightly known and remembered, for indeed his contributions
are remarkable, especially given the fact that he made his
important discoveries working in isolation from the mainstream
developments in Europe. ...More
