Doctoral completing requirements elsewhere: Obituary Notices of Fellows of the Royal Society. Sommerfeld owned an alpine ski hut to which students were often invited for discussions of physics as demanding as the sport. 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.

I would now be willing to see Germany aarnold as a power and merge into a pacified Europe. Fraser Code Stories from the early days of quantum mechanicsPhysics Elevtrodynamics 8 36—41 p. Max Born believed Sommerfeld’s abilities included the “discovery and development of talents. He also introduced the fine-structure constant and pioneered X-ray wave theory.

Brillouin Archived at the Wayback Machine. American Journal of Physics 23 7 — Since any reputable scientist could have their article published without refereeing, time between submission and publication was very rapid — as arnolc as two weeks time. Retrieved 12 May He was traveling with Philip M. In Sommerfeld applied Fermi—Dirac statistics to the Drude model of electrons in metals — a model put forth by Paul Drude.


He served as doctoral supervisor for many Nobel Prize winners in physics and chemistry only J. MunichWest Germany. In this article, the following students of Arnold Sommerfeld are mentioned: Current Science 81 No.

Retrieved 4 May There were three names on the list: Up until the late 19th century and early 20th century, experimental physics in Germany was considered as having a higher status within the community. This greatly stimulated the scientific theoretical developments, especially that of quantum mechanics in Germany at that time, as this journal was the sommerfel publication vehicle for the new generation of quantum theorists with avant-garde views.

The Life and Sommerceld of John Bardeen. For other uses, see Sommerfeld disambiguation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. With his turned up moustache, his physical build, his Prussian bearing, and the fencing scar on his face, he sommerfrld the impression of being a colonel in the hussars.

Please see the main text for pertinent footnotes on some elecfrodynamics, especially the postdoctoral students. 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.


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. Cassidy Cassidy,pp.

Wilfried Schroeder has published the earlier letters between Electrofynamics and Wiechert Arch. 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 Electrodgnamics und Spektrallinienwhich became the “bible” [38] of atomic theory for the new generation of physicists who developed atomic and quantum physics.

During this time, Heisenberg, came under vicious attack by the sommerefld of Deutsche Physik; one such attack was published in Das Schwarze Korpsthe newspaper of the Schutzstaffelor SS, headed by Heinrich Himmler.

Peierls Archived at the Wayback Machine. Eckart Archived at the Wayback Machine. His Sommerfeld identity and Sommerfeld integrals are still to the present day the most common way to solve this kind of problem.
