INDEX Italic page numbers indicate references to front matter, editorial notes, appendixes, biographies, or the chronology. With few exceptions, references are collected un- der the appropriate English heading. Certain important institutions, organizations, and scientific concepts are also listed under their German designations (with cross references to the corresponding English designations), in those cases where the German designation would not otherwise be found adjacent to the English desig- nation in the alphabetical listing, or where there might be a question about the translation of the German term. The abbreviations "AE" and "MM" are used for "Albert Einstein" and "Mileva Maric," respectively. A separate index of cita- tions follows the main index.
