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.

Arnold Johannes Wilhelm Sommerfeld — Rabi, translated and edited by R. At the end of the 19th and the early 20th century, there were only four ordinarius professorships for theoretical physics: With his turned up moustache, his physical build, his Prussian bearing, and the fencing scar on his face, he gave the impression of being a colonel in the hussars. Inthe center for theoretical physics at the University of Munich was named after him.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Munich Faculty was firmly behind these candidates, with Heisenberg as their first choice.

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. Thomson’s record of mentorship is comparable to his. MunichWest Germany.

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. While at Munich, Sommerfeld came in contact with the special theory of relativity by Albert Einsteinwhich sommerfwld not yet widely accepted at that time.

I would now be willing to see Germany disappear as a power and merge into a pacified Europe. During this time, Heisenberg, came under vicious attack by the supporters of Deutsche Physik; one such electrodjnamics was published in Das Schwarze Korpsthe newspaper of the Schutzstaffelor SS, headed by Heinrich Himmler.

Doctoral completing requirements elsewhere: There were three names on the list: Retrieved 4 May 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 American Journal of Physics 23 7 — Webarchive template wayback links Webarchive template archiveis links CS1 maint: 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.

Archived from the original on 6 November 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. His mathematical contributions to the theory helped its acceptance by the skeptics. He served as doctoral supervisor for many Nobel Prize winners in physics and chemistry only J.


He electrodynmaics traveling with Philip M.

Max Born believed Sommerfeld’s abilities included the “discovery and development of talents. This appointment provided enough income to eventually marry Johanna. He entertained them in his home and met with them in cafes before and after seminars and colloquia.

In comments made on the status of theoretical physics inVoigt only mentioned Planck, Wilhelm WienPaul Drudeand Sommerfeld. His Sommerfeld identity and Sommerfeld integrals are still to the present day the most common way to solve this kind of problem.

Jungnickel Jungnickel, b, pp. In Sommerfeld applied Fermi—Dirac statistics to the Drude model of electrons in metals — a model put forth by Paul Drude. He completed his obligatory military service in Septemberand for the next eight years continued voluntary eight-week military service.
