Erwin. Schr ö dinger. (1887 – 1961) . “The task is not so much to see what no-one has yet seen, but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees.” .
The young Schrödinger received private lessons from a tutor at home until the age of ten.
He then attended Akademisches Gymnasium until his graduation in 1906.
From 1906 to 1910 he was a student at the University of Vienna, during which time he came under the strong influence of Fritz Hasenöhrl, who was Boltzmann's successor.
On 20 May 1910, Schrödinger was awarded his doctorate for the dissertation On the conduction of electricity on the surface of insulators in moist air. He then became assistant to Franz Exner- an important pioneer of modern physics in Austria at the time.Early life
