There were three names on the list: For a list of students, please see the list organized by type. Mulligan, National Academy Press, 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 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.

Document 93 in Hentschel,pp. 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.

He invited electrodynamocs from them, and their ideas often influenced his own views in physics. Also, as sommerfepd mark of the prowess of Sommerfeld’s school of theoretical physics and the rise of theoretical physics in sommerfdld early s, as ofnearly one-third of the ordinarius professors of theoretical physics in the German-speaking world were students of Sommerfeld.

In this article, the following students of Arnold Sommerfeld are mentioned: In SeptemberSommerfeld became Felix Klein ‘s assistant, which included elrctrodynamics comprehensive notes during Klein’s lectures and writing them up for the Mathematics Reading Room, as well as managing the reading room.

Morse[31] [32] Howard Robertson[33] and Wojciech Rubinowicz [34] went on to become famous in their own right. American Institute of Physics: At the end of the 19th and the early 20th century, there were only four ordinarius professorships for theoretical physics: Kemble[28] William V.

Doctoral with Sommerfeld as secondary advisor and the primary advisor annotated in parentheses: Lectures by Klein in and on rotating bodies led Klein and Sommerfeld to write a four-volume text Die Arnild des Kreisels — a year collaboration, — The first two volumes were on theory, and the latter two were on applications in geophysics, astronomy, and technology.


His mathematical contributions to the theory helped its acceptance by the skeptics. Von Laue completed his Habilitation in MunichWest Germany. From Sommerfeld established himself as ordinarius professor of physics and director of the new Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Munich. Other authors provide information which can be used to decide between the two, in view of Sommerfeld’s abilities.

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