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 electrodynzmics managing the reading room.

In this article, the following students of Arnold Sommerfeld are mentioned: KemblePhilip M. He invited collaboration from them, and their ideas often influenced his own views in physics.

Arnold Electrodynamcs Wilhelm Sommerfeld — On 1 April Sommerfeld achieved emeritus status, sommerefld, he stayed on as his own temporary replacement during the selection process for his successor, which took until 1 December His Sommerfeld identity and Sommerfeld integrals are still to the present day the most common way to solve this kind of problem.

This page was last edited on 8 Octoberat Other authors provide information which can be used to decide between the two, in view of Sommerfeld’s abilities. Over his 32 years of teaching at Munich, Sommerfeld taught general and specialized courses, as well as holding seminars and colloquia.

This appointment provided enough income to eventually marry Johanna.

Max Born believed Sommerfeld’s abilities included the “discovery and development of talents. In comments made on the status of theoretical physics inVoigt only mentioned Planck, Wilhelm WienPaul Drudeand Sommerfeld. Von Laue completed his Habilitation in 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.


He introduced the 2nd quantum number azimuthal quantum number and the 4th quantum number spin quantum number. 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 Atombau und Spektrallinienwhich became the “bible” [38] of atomic theory for the new generation of physicists who developed atomic and quantum physics.

There were three names on the list: However, supporters of Deutsche Physik and elements in the Reichserziehungsministerium had their own list of candidates and the battle commenced, dragging on for over four years. Lectures by Klein in and on rotating bodies led Klein and Sommerfeld to write a four-volume text Die Theorie des Kreisels — a year collaboration, — American Journal of Physics 23 7 — Fraser Code Stories from the early days of quantum mechanicsPhysics Today 8 36—41 There was also a two-hour weekly presentation for the discussion of problems.

Retrieved 12 May Doctoral completing requirements elsewhere: At one point, Heisenberg’s mother visited Himmler’s mother to help bring a resolution to the affair. Edward Condon Archived at the Wayback Machine. Archived from the original on 3 February 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.


Doctoral with Sommerfeld as secondary advisor and the primary advisor annotated in parentheses: In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikiquote Wikisource. Jungnickel Jungnickel, b, pp. During this time, Heisenberg, came under vicious attack by the supporters of Deutsche Physik; one such attack was published in Das Schwarze Korpsthe newspaper of the Schutzstaffelor SS, headed by Heinrich Himmler. Rabi, translated and edited by R. From Arnld established himself as ordinarius professor of physics and director of the new Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Munich.

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

Document 93 in Hentschel,pp. He completed his obligatory military service in Septemberand for the next eight years continued voluntary eight-week military service.

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.

His dissertation advisor was the mathematician Ferdinand von Lindemann[3] and he also benefited from classes armold mathematicians Adolf Hurwitz and David Hilbert and physicist Emil Wiechert. He did little research himself, did not attract physicists, had few publications to his name, and as a physics teacher was a “popularizer”.
