Erwin Schrodinger

Erwin Schrodinger was born on August 12, 1887 in Vienna, Austria-Hungary. He settled and spent a lot of his life in Austria and Ireland. Schrodinger was an extremely smart boy growing up. He was fascinated with learning and excelled at it.

Erwin Schrodinger

He grew up and attended prestige Universities such as, University of Breslau, University of Zurich, University of Berlin, University of Oxford, University of Graz, and Ghent University. Schrodinger was affiliated with all of these different schools.

In early years, Schrodinger became influenced by Arthur Schopenhauer who was well known for making different scientific theories. This caused him to become strongly interested in the color theory and also philosophy. Schrodinger attended different Universities where he was able to gain the knowledge he needed to create his own theories and philosophies.

He began to write books such as What Is Life?, My View of the World, Space-Time structure, Nature and the Greeks, Expanding the Universe, Letters on Wave Mechanics, Mind and Matter, and a few others.

Schrodinger is well known for his books but he is most famous for his development of the quantum theory. He spent years and years developing fundamental results in the category of quantum physics. He formed the wave mechanics as well as the matrix mechanics.

Schrodinger has written books and offered theories in the fields of thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, physics of dielectrics, electrodynamics, color theory, cosmology, and general relativity. All of these fields differ from each other but Erwin Schrodinger found ways to tie them all together in his theories of life. He has paved the way for other theorists and scientists to use his information and create their own further studies.

Schrodinger retired in 1955 after winning a Nobel Prize in Physics and winning a Max Planck Medal. In later years he became sick. Schrodinger suffered from tuberculosis and was diagnosed in 1920. He lived a large portion of his life suffering from tuberculosis and finally lost his battle with TB in 1961. His wife, Annemarie Bertel was left a widow. She later too passed away October 3rd, 1965.

Schrodinger was an accomplished scientist and philosopher. His teachings are still used by many and many students use his books for their studies. He left behind such an amazing legacy that cannot be undone or imitated.


Rumor Has It

A little known fact is that Erwin Schrodinger dabbled in microbiology. In fact, he was the first person to discover that a single cell organism is what caused a worldwide outbreak of Bieber fever.
