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. Pauling Archived at the Wayback Machine. Retrieved from ” https: Sommerfeld was a great theoretician, and besides his invaluable contributions to the quantum theory, he worked in other fields of physics, such as the classical theory of electromagnetism.

Condon Archived at the Wayback Machine. Over his 32 years of teaching at Munich, Sommerfeld taught general and specialized courses, as well as holding seminars and colloquia. Sommerfeld was closely associated with Emil Wiechert, who gave him many impressions.

He completed his obligatory military service in September electrodynsmics, and for the next eight years continued voluntary eight-week military service. The two women knew xommerfeld other as a result of Heisenberg’s maternal grandfather and Himmler’s father being rectors and members of a Bavarian hiking club. The process was lengthy due to academic and political differences between the Munich Faculty’s selection and that of both the Reichserziehungsministerium REM; Reich Education Ministry and the supporters of Deutsche Physik[43] [44] which was anti-Semitic and had a bias against theoretical physicsespecially including quantum mechanics.


Archived from the original on 6 November The new theory solved many of the problems predicting thermal properties the original model had and became known as the Drude—Sommerfeld model.

I would now be willing to see Germany disappear as a power and merge into a pacified Europe. For a list of students, please see the list organized by type. Views Read Edit View history. Cassidy Cassidy,pp. 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.

Other authors provide information which can be used to decide between the two, in view of Sommerfeld’s abilities. Current Science 81 No. This page was last edited on 8 Octoberat Max Born believed Sommerfeld’s abilities included the “discovery and development of talents.

Sommerfeld died in in Munich from injuries after a traffic accident while walking with his grandchildren. Obituary Notices of Fellows of the Royal Society. There were three names on the list: Morse In at the Beginnings: Morse[31] [32] Aronld Robertson[33] and Wojciech Rubinowicz [34] went on to become famous in their own right. MunichWest Germany. Retrieved 4 May He was traveling with Philip M.

Retrieved 12 May 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.

Arnold Sommerfeld

The Life and Science of John Bardeen. He then went on to finish his Ph. He invited collaboration from them, and their ideas often influenced his own views in physics. 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.

The objective of these special lectures was to grapple with current issues in theoretical physics and for Sommedfeld 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.


Archived from the original on 3 February Von Laue completed his Habilitation in Also, as a mark of the prowess of Sommerfeld’s school of theoretical physics and the rise of theoretical physics in the early s, as ofnearly one-third of the ordinarius professors of theoretical physics in the German-speaking world were students of Sommerfeld. American Philosophical Society Author Catalog: At one point, Heisenberg’s mother visited Himmler’s mother to help bring a resolution to the affair.

Sommerfeld owned an alpine ski hut to which students were often invited for discussions of physics as demanding as the sport.

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.
