Erwin Schrödinger: a compreensão do mundo infinitesimalatravés de uma realidade ondulatória

by Schmidt, Douglas Guilherme

Abstract (Summary)
This historical research analyses the initial period of construction of wavemechanics, as propounded by the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961), emphasizing his work from December 1925 to February 1926. During thesemonths Schrödinger created the basis of his quantum theory and wrote his twoearlier papers on this subject. They were published in the Annalen der Physik. Thepresent dissertation analyses those two papers, and some of their precedents andimmediate consequences. Special attention is given to the influence of the theoryof matter waves of the French physicist Louis de Broglie (1892-1987) upon thedevelopment of Schrödinger?s theory, as well as other works and relevantcircumstances that contributed to the creation of wave mechanics. Thedissertation also discusses the interpretation given by Schrödinger to his owntheory, comparing it to the approach of other physicists of that time
