    Erwin Schrodinger Erwin Schrodinger Presentation Transcript

    • Erwin Schr ö dinger August 12, 1887 - January 4, 1961 "The scientist only imposes two things, namely truth and sincerity, imposes them upon himself and upon other scientists." -Erwin Schrödinger Created the Schrödinger Equation, an important equation that is fundamental to quantum physics
    • Two forms of the Schrödinger equation
    • Family History
        • Nationality- Austria
        • The only child of Rudolf Schrödinger, who was married to the daughter of his Professor of Chemistry at the Technical College of Vienna
        • Erwin's father came from a Bavarian family which generations before had settled in Vienna
        • Erwin's mother, Emily Bauer, was half English and half Austrian
        • Erwin's father finished his chemistry studies, and devoted himself to Italian painting. After this he took up botany, which resulted in a series of papers on plant phylogeny.
    • Education
        • Entered the University of Vienna in 1906 and obtained his doctorate in 1910
        • Did military service in World War I and then went to the University of Zürich in 1921
        • During a six-month period in 1926, at the age of 39, he produced the papers that gave the foundations of quantum wave mechanics.
        • Attended the University of Berlin from 1927-1933
    • Personal Life
        • Suffered from tuberculosis
        • In 1933 he decided that he could not live in a country in which the persecution of Jews had become a national policy.
        • Although his relations with his wife Anny were good, he had had many lovers with his wife's full knowledge
        • Asked for Arthur March to be his assistant because, at that time, he was in love with March's wife Hilde.
        • Mid-1933 Hilde became pregnant with Schrödinger's child in the Italian province of Bolzano
        • Died in Vienna at the age of 73 of tuberculosis
        • Buried in Alpbach, Austria
    • Contributions & Awards
        • Developed the Schrödinger Equation in 1926
        • Received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1933
        •   In 1935, after extensive correspondence with Albert Einstein, he proposed the Schrödinger's cat thought experiment
        • Contributed to the wave theory of matter and to other fundamentals of quantum mechanics
        • One of his lesser-known areas of scientific contribution was his work on color, color perception, and colorimetry
        • The philosophical issues raised by Schrödinger's cat are still debated today and remains his most enduring legacy in popular science
        • The Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics was established in Vienna in 1993
        • The huge crater Schrödinger, on the far side of the Moon is named after him
