Einstein was a varied and prolific writer.

The lists below are some of the names of the papers Einstein has published. The list demonstrates that Einstein was somewhat varied in subject matter as an author. I often wondered if he was given other scientists patents and ideas to rewrite and to possibly put the 'correct' spin on because it is hard for me to imagine that for such technical papers, that Einstein would have time to conceive of, reconsider, write several drafts of and then write those papers all himself, even if co authored in such short time spans. The mental time needed for each paper take times to develop. I know PhD's who have spent years on one just one paper.

Some papers written by Einstein:

On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light

On the Motion of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid, as Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat

On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies

Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?

Thermodynamic fluctuations and statistical physics

Principle of relativity.

Photon and Quantum

Einstein solid

Old quantum theory

Wave–particle duality

Critical opalescence

Zero-point energy

History of general relativity

Principle of equivalence,

Theory of relativity, and

Einstein field equations

Hole argument

Gravitational waves

Cosmology

Schrödinger equation

Bose–Einstein statistics

Stress–energy–momentum pseudotensor

Classical unified field theories

Wormhole

Einstein–Cartan theory

Einstein–Infeld–Hoffmann equations

What Science says Einstein got wrong:

Superconductivity

Special relativity

Gravitational waves

Black holes

Quantum mechanics

EPR paradox

Cosmological term

Minkowski's work

Heisenberg's work

Unified field theory

Einstein was a prolific writer. Below you will find how many papers Einstein published per decade. Lot's of his papers were co authored but still, the list rivals Miles Mathis. I think I remember reading how prolific Einstein was as a writer here at CF but I couldn't find the post to link to it. I wanted to finish that thought and show the statistics. All my data is from the official party line: Albert Einstein Wiki

1901-1910 . . . 58 papers published

1911-1920 . . . 91 papers published

1921-1930 . . . 73 papers published

1931-1940 . . . 30 papers published

1941-1955 . . . 20 papers published

At his most prolific, Einstein published 24 papers in one year, 1905, smack dab in the middle of his years working at the Swiss Patent Office which was from 1902 to 1909. Einstein was an information machine.
