There was also a two-hour weekly presentation for the discussion of problems. 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. Archived from the original on 6 November Retrieved 4 May 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.

I would now be willing to see Germany disappear as a power and merge into a pacified Europe. Other authors provide information which can be used to decide between the two, in view of Sommerfeld’s abilities. Also, as a mark of the prowess of Sommerfeld’s school of theoretical physics and the rise of theoretical physics in the electdodynamics s, as ofnearly one-third of the ordinarius professors of theoretical physics in the German-speaking world were students of Sommerfeld.

For a list of students, please see the list organized by type. At one point, Heisenberg’s mother visited Himmler’s mother to help bring a resolution to the affair. While at Munich, Sommerfeld came in contact arnild the special theory of relativity by Albert Einsteinwhich was not yet widely accepted at that time. His mathematical contributions to the theory helped its acceptance by the skeptics. He invited collaboration from them, and their ideas often influenced his own views in physics.
