Austrian physicist Friedrich Hasenhrl had published a paper on the topic in 1904 in the VERY SAME JOURNAL Annalen der Physik , USING THE SAME EQUATION E=MC^2 in which Einstein would publish his plagiarized version in Sept 1905. For his brilliant work in this area, Hasenhrl had received in 1904 a prize from the prestigious Vienna Academy of Sciences.
The math equation and relationship of mass / energy was a simple deduction from the already well-known equations of Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell. Scientists long understood that the mathematical relationship is expressed by the equation E=MC^2.
Pea brained Einstein could not do math to save his life. The whole world knows that Einstein married his first Serbian wife to do his Math. Einstein actually told his close friends and it is his own words. He ditched her when he got a man better than ( Marcel Grossman ) her to do his math.
... do you have anything about his general and special theories of relativity and photon theory?.. its really entertaining... like a bollywood masala movie...
