Erwin Schrödinger (1887–1961) was an Austrian physicist
famous for the equation named after him and which earned him the Nobel Prize
in 1933. This book contains lectures presented at the international symposium
“Erwin Schrödinger —50 Years After”, held at the Erwin
Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics in January
2011 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Schrödinger's
death.

The text covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from personal
reminiscences to foundational questions about quantum mechanics and
historical accounts of Schrödinger's work. Besides the lectures
presented at the symposium the volume also contains articles specially
written for this occasion.

The contributions give an overview of
Schrödinger's legacy to the sciences from the standpoint of some
contemporary leading scholars in the field.
