Abstract

Introductory quantum physics texts often begin with a historical review. A typical starting point is the analysis of the black-body radiation spectrum, conducted in 1900 by Max Planck and traditionally considered the birth of quantum physics. This is a natural choice, as it is on this occasion that Planck first introduced his constant h.
