Satyendranath Bose: Co-Founder of Quantum Statistics
Blanpied, William A.
American Journal of Physics, 40, 9, 1212-1220, Sep 72
Satyendranath Bose was first to prove Planck's Law by using ideal quantum gas. Einstein credited Bose for this first step in the development of quantum statistical mechanics. Bose did not realize the importance of his work, perhaps because of peculiar academic settings in India under British rule. (PS)
