♦Description : “Quantum physics and representation of the world. The work of Erwin Schrödinger, the great pioneer of quantum theory, goes far beyond mere theoretical physics. The texts gathered here show that his thoughts have not lost their relevance. He mentions the “barbarism of specialization” and the necessary integration of science into culture,convinced that scientific research must go hand in hand with philosophical “inquiry” and epistemological reflection. He speaks of science in a surprisingly close voice, with that inimitable mixture of depth and lightness, and this bright sense of analogy that made the success of the famous “Schrödinger cat”. So Schrödinger himself, like his cat, without being alive, is not dead.
Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961)
Physicist and thinker, famous for having formulated in 1926 the equation that bears his name, cornerstone of quantum theory, which earned him the Nobel Prize in 1933.
Introduction and notes by Michel Bitbol”
“Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger is an Austrian physicist born in Vienna on August 12, 1887. He received with Paul Dirac, the 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics for the wave equation called the Schrödinger equation. He is one of the physicists at the origin of quantum physics. Known also for the astonishing thought experiment, Schrödinger’s Cat (see below), following a correspondence with Albert Einstein in 1935. He obtained his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at the University of Vienna in 1910.
In 1914, Erwin Schrödinger participated in the First World War as an artillery officer. In 1926, Schrödinger published an article in the Annales de Physique on the “quantification” of the eigenvector problem, which became Schrödinger’s equation. In 1933 Schrödinger left Germany and went to England because of Nazism and anti-Semitism. At Oxford University, he receives his Nobel Prize. In 1936 Schrödinger returned to Austria to the University of Graz.
Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger is an Austrian physicist and scientific theorist. By imagining the equation of evolution of the wave function associated with the state of a particle, it allowed the development of the theoretical formalism of quantum mechanics. This wave equation, which takes into account both quantization and non-relativistic energy, was later called Schrödinger’s equation (for which he received, jointly with Paul Dirac, the 1933 Nobel Prize in physics. ).
He is also known to have submitted the astonishing thought experiment, later named Schrödinger’s Cat, after extensive correspondence with Albert Einstein in 1935. He studied at the University of Vienna. He taught physics at the universities of Stuttgart, Germany, Breslau, Poland, Zurich, Berlin, Oxford and Graz, Austria.
He was director of the School of Theoretical Physics at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Dublin from 1940 until his retirement in 1955. Schrödinger, who suffered from tuberculosis, had to stay several times during the 1920s in a sanatorium in Arosa”.
