Answer:

Quoting dineshk:

“Henri Poincare, Olinto De Pretto, Albert Einstein and Paul Langevin – independent discoverers of E = mc^2 although everyone except Einstein seems to have arrived at the equation through reasoning that is flawed to various degrees.”

    Poincare, Olinto de Pretto, Einstein and… Minkowski?

    I discovered relativity.

    No *I* discovered relativity.

    Ok ok, we all did – why can’t we just get along?

    Henri Poincaré
    Einstein
    not sure about the others

    Disputed Einstein “discoveries”?

    Where E=MC^2 is concerned, it’s linked to De Pretto

    For Special Relativity, the claim is that Albert plagiarized Poincare, Langevin (and several others).

    There is a reference in WP reading,

    *E = mc2 — Henri Poincare, 1900; Olinto De Pretto, 1903; Albert Einstein, 1905; Paul Langevin, 1906.*

    So I guess it’s just the equivalence formula that we’re after.

    My guess is that this is about the ” Relativity priority dispute “
