A Life of Erwin Schrodinger

A Life of Erwin Schrodinger Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Erwin Schrödinger was a brilliant and charming Austrian, and one of the greatest scientists of the twentieth century. This abridgement of Walter Moore's magisterial Schrödinger: Life and Thought offers a highly readable account, interweaving Schrödinger's scientific work with his intense personal friendships, his interest in mysticism, and the turbulent background of political events in Europe. Hailed as a "breathtaking accomplishment," Walter Moore's colorful account is destined to become a classic of scientific biography.

Synopsis:

Erwin Schroedinger was best known for the discovery of wave mechanics, which won him the Nobel Prize for Physics. This book interweaves Schroedinger's scientific work with his intense personal friendships, his interest in mysticism, and the turbulent background of contemporary political events.
