A biography of the life and works of the physicist Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrodinger.
The paper details the life of the Austrian physicist Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrodinger. It examines his academic career from its origins from the University of Vienna in 1906 to his faculty positions all over the World. It evaluates his work and his published writings on topics such as electromagnetic theory, color theory and wave mechanics and describes his two most famous equations, crucial to relating wave theory with the energy of a system.
“With the outbreak of the World War I, despite being stationed on the Italian Front, Schrodingerr published a paper. His first work was based on furthering Boltzmann’s ideas. Schrodingerreceived a citation for his efforts in the War. After the war, Schrodinger was sent to Vienna where he continued his research. He published his work on quantum mechanics and later made valuable contributions to the color theory. His work on radioactive decay garnered him an associate faculty’s position in Vienna. Financial constraints (having to care for a family he had recently married) caused Schrodinger to take up a faculty position in Jena. Later he held chairman’s positions in Breslau, and finally the chair of theoretical physics at the University of Zurich.”
