A Life of Erwin Schrödinger
Cambridge University Press, Aug 26, 1994 - Biography & Autobiography - 349 pages
Erwin Schrödinger was a brilliant and charming Austrian, and one of the greatest scientists of the twentieth century. This abridgement of Walter Moore's magisterial Schrödinger: Life and Thought offers a highly readable account, interweaving Schrödinger's scientific work with his intense personal friendships, his interest in mysticism, and the turbulent background of political events in Europe. Hailed as a "breathtaking accomplishment," Walter Moore's colorful account is destined to become a classic of scientific biography.
