Description

Recognized as a founding father of Quantum Physics and considered by many to be second only to Albert Einstein in the realm of theoretical physics, Erwin Schrödinger was awarded The Nobel Prize in Physics in 1933 for "the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory".

Beyond his two most enduring legacies to quantum physics, the wave equation and Schrödinger's Cat, in 1944 he published a little book, What is Life: The physical aspect of the living cell. By stating that the basic principles of physics and chemistry could be applied to biology, the book inspired the work of leading microbiologists such as James Watson and Francis Crick, leading to important discoveries including the structure of DNA and later, of RNA and other biological molecules.

Schrödinger's Nobel Medal is offered together with the original handwritten draft (in German) of the "Autobiographical Sketches" contained in What is Life. The buyer will also receive copies of various pertinent photographs and documents, including a copy of a note from Francis Crick acknowledging the importance of Schrödinger's little book to his and Watson’s work.
