He invited collaboration from them, and their ideas often influenced his own views in physics.

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.

Inthe center for theoretical physics at the University of Munich was named after him. Sommerfeld owned an alpine ski hut to which students were often invited for discussions of physics as demanding as the sport. He entertained them in his home and met with them in cafes before and after seminars and colloquia.

I would now be willing to see Germany disappear as a power and merge into a pacified Europe. His mathematical contributions to the theory helped its acceptance by the skeptics.

The first two volumes were on theory, and the latter two were on applications in geophysics, astronomy, and technology. At the end of the 19th and the early 20th century, there were only four ordinarius professorships for theoretical physics: Morse In electrodynamica the Beginnings: Document 85 in Hentschel,pp.

He did little research himself, did not attract physicists, had few publications to his name, and as a physics teacher was a “popularizer”. 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. From Sommerfeld established himself as ordinarius professor of physics and director of the new Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Munich.

There was also a two-hour weekly presentation for the discussion of problems. Retrieved 4 May
