Albert Einstein explained the physical theory of relativity, which he (after important work done by Hendrik Antoon Lorentz and Henri Poincaré), published in 1905 as a special theory of relativity and 1916 (with important contributions from Marcel Grossmann and David Hilbert) as general relativity. Einstein's work led to a revolution in physics, the special and general relativity are still among the cornerstones of modern physics. For ease of formulation, he led the 1916 Einstein summation convention, the tensor can be written more compact.
