At Aachen, electtrodynamics developed the theory of hydrodynamicswhich would retain his interest for a long time. American Journal of Physics. Kemble at Harvard University.

Current Science 81 No. From Sommerfeld established himself as ordinarius electrodynaics of physics and director of the new Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Munich. Retrieved 4 May He became one of the founders of quantum mechanics ; some of his contributions included co-discovery of the Sommerfeld—Wilson quantization rulesa generalization of Bohr’s atomic modelintroduction of the Sommerfeld fine-structure constantco-discovery with Walther Kossel of the Sommerfeld—Kossel displacement law[37] and publishing Atombau und Spektrallinienwhich became the “bible” [38] of atomic theory for the new generation of physicists who developed atomic and quantum physics.

Doctoral with Sommerfeld as secondary advisor and the primary advisor annotated in parentheses: On 1 April Sommerfeld achieved emeritus status, however, he stayed on as his own temporary replacement during the selection process for his successor, which took until 1 December Houston Biography Archived at the Wayback Machine.

In SeptemberSommerfeld became Felix Klein ‘s assistant, which included taking comprehensive notes during Klein’s lectures and writing them up for the Mathematics Reading Room, as well as managing the reading room.


Thomson’s record of mentorship is comparable to his.

At one point, Heisenberg’s mother visited Himmler’s mother to help bring a resolution to the affair. He then went on to finish his Ph.

Brillouin Archived at the Wayback Machine. The objective of these special lectures was to grapple with current issues in theoretical physics and for Sommerfeld and the students to garner a systematic comprehension of the issue, independent of whether or not they were successful in solving the problem posed by the current issue.

Sommerfeld owned an alpine ski hut to which students were often invited for discussions of physics as demanding as the sport. Cassidy Cassidy,pp. Max Born believed Sommerfeld’s abilities included the “discovery and development of talents.

However, supporters of Deutsche Physik and elements in the Reichserziehungsministerium had their own list of candidates and the battle commenced, dragging on for over four years.

For example, he proposed a solution to the problem of a radiating hertzian dipole over a conducting earth, which over the years led to many applications. Rabi, translated and edited by R. Peierls Archived at the Wayback Machine. Von Laue completed his Habilitation in In the article, Rabi comments on his experience as a postdoctoral student of Sommerfeld.

Lectures by Klein in and on rotating bodies led Klein and Sommerfeld to write a four-volume text Die Theorie des Kreisels — a year collaboration, — In Sommerfeld applied Fermi—Dirac statistics to the Drude model of electrons in metals — electrodynamis model put forth by Paul Drude. He served as doctoral supervisor for many Nobel Prize winners in physics and chemistry only J. Other authors provide information which can be used to decide between the two, in view of Sommerfeld’s abilities.


Sommerfeld was closely associated with Emil Wiechert, who gave him many impressions.

The first two volumes were on theory, and the latter two were on applications in sommeerfeld, astronomy, and technology. This appointment provided enough income to eventually marry Johanna. Kemble[28] William V.

He introduced the 2nd quantum number azimuthal quantum number and the 4th quantum number spin quantum number. He also skmmerfeld the fine-structure constant and pioneered X-ray wave theory.

He completed his obligatory military service in Septemberand for the next eight years continued voluntary eight-week military service. Mulligan, National Academy Press, American Journal of Physics 23 7 — 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 qrnold Schutzstaffelor SS, headed by Heinrich Himmler.
