The family received friends 20 August 2013 at Schroedinger
Northwest Chapel in Columbus, followed by a graveside service at Resurrection Cemetery.
Eduard-Martin Prize for Excellence in Research, a fellowship in the American Physical Society, and the 2007 Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award, and the SASP Erwin Schroedinger
medal of the University of Innsbruck.
It turns out that the construction of a Hilbert space is the cornerstone used for calculating successful solutions of the Dirac equation and of its associated Pauli and Schroedinger
equations as well.
Where it previously would have taken years to analyse a set of 21 million chemical compounds using a small HPC instance with a few hundred cores, Schroedinger
completed the experiment in just three hours.
Maybe not quite at the Newton-Einstein-Galileo pinnacle, but right up there with Dirac, Planck, Schroedinger
,Weinberg, Feynman, Wheeler, Susskind, Heisenberg and the other colossal intellects who, in the last century, have shaped the way we view the universe.
Quantum mechanics was discovered by Schroedinger
and Hei-senberg in the years 1925-1927.
He is recipient of the 1991 Medal of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science, the 1994 Noranda Award of the CSC, the 1999 Queen's University Prize for Excellence in Research, and the 2000 Schroedinger
Medal of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists.
The physical pole (reflecting actualizations of the potentia defined by reduced-form solutions of the Schroedinger
equation) describes the evolution of system from an initial state to a final state, entailing the integration of antecedent data with respect to the matrix of potential forms of definiteness.
Only two scientists, William Clifford and Nobel Laureate Irwin Schroedinger
have proposed a successful origin of matter and the Natural Laws based upon waves in space.
I have observed the process in Ireland for the past half-century, having been myself part of the brain-drain process twice, and having also participated (for a time in the 1950s) in a creditable attempt to reverse the process by networking the fringe with the core, initiated in the context of the work of the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies, founded by Eamonn de Valera in 1939 as a haven for refugees from Fascism, of whom the best known is perhaps Schroedinger
The best popularizers of science have mostly been great scientists themselves: Einstein, Schroedinger
, Feynman, Hawking are all examples.
The great physicist Erwin Schroedinger
wrote a little book entitled What Is Life?
