His dissertation advisor was the mathematician Ferdinand von Lindemann[3] and he also benefited from classes with mathematicians Adolf Hurwitz and David Hilbert and physicist Emil Wiechert. From Sommerfeld established himself as ordinarius professor of physics and arnodl of the new Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Munich.

At one point, Heisenberg’s mother visited Himmler’s mother to help bring a resolution to the affair.

The objective of these special lectures was to grapple with current issues in theoretical physics arnpld for Sommerfeld and the students to garner a systematic electroxynamics of the issue, independent of whether or not they were successful in solving the problem posed by the current issue. Retrieved 12 May Fraser Code Stories from the early days of quantum arnldPhysics Today 8 36—41 The two women knew each other as a result of Heisenberg’s maternal grandfather and Himmler’s father being rectors and members of a Bavarian hiking club.

Morse[31] [32] Howard Robertson[33] and Wojciech Rubinowicz [34] went on to become famous in their own right. Retrieved from ” https: During this time, Heisenberg, came under vicious attack by the supporters of Deutsche Physik; one such attack was published in Das Schwarze Korpsthe newspaper of the Schutzstaffelor SS, headed by Heinrich Himmler.


Houston Biography Archived at the Wayback Machine. He served as doctoral supervisor for many Nobel Prize winners in physics and chemistry only J. Sommerfeld owned an alpine ski hut to which students were often invited for discussions of physics as demanding as the sport.

Since any reputable scientist could have their article published without refereeing, time between submission and publication was very rapid — as fast as two weeks time. MunichWest Germany.

The specialized courses were of topical interest and based on Sommerfeld’s research interests; material from these courses appeared later in the scientific literature publications of Sommerfeld.

Over his 32 years of teaching at Munich, Sommerfeld taught general and specialized courses, as well as holding seminars and colloquia.

Up until the late 19th century and early 20th century, experimental physics in Germany electrodyamics considered as having a higher status within the community.

He then went on to finish his Ph. Kemble[28] William V. Von Laue completed his Habilitation in Current Science 81 No. Brillouin Archived at the Wayback Machine. There were three names on the list: Inthe center for electrodynzmics physics at the University of Munich was named after him.

He completed his obligatory military service in Septemberand for the next eight years continued electdodynamics eight-week military service.

This greatly stimulated the scientific theoretical developments, especially that of quantum mechanics in Germany at that time, as this journal was the preferred publication vehicle for the new generation of quantum theorists with avant-garde views.

He entertained them in his home and met with them in cafes before and after seminars and colloquia. Archived from the original on 12 February Morse In at the Beginnings: Jungnickel Jungnickel, b, pp.

He also introduced the fine-structure constant and pioneered X-ray wave theory. Edward Condon Archived at the Wayback Machine. The new theory solved many of the problems predicting thermal properties the original model had and became known as the Drude—Sommerfeld model. His Sommerfeld identity and Sommerfeld integrals are still to the present day the most common way to solve this kind of problem.
