Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961) was an Austrian physicist famous for the equation named after him and which earned him the Nobel Prize in 1933. This book contains lectures presented at the international symposium held at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics in January 2011 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Schrödingers death.
The text covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from personal reminiscences to foundational questions of quantum mechanics and historical accounts of Schrödingers work. Besides the lectures presented at the symposium the volume also contains articles specially written for this occasion.
The contributions give an overview of Schrödingers legacy to the sciences from the standpoint of some of present days leading scholars in the field.
The book addresses students and researchers in mathematics, physics and the history of science.
