This equation, the foundation for an important development in physics called wave mechanics, treats the motion of particles in terms of matter-waves under well-defined influences.
Having emigrated from Madras in 1930, somewhat too late to get in on the ground floor of wave mechanics, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar did his graduate study at Cambridge and shortly found himself at theoretical odds with Eddington over dark stars.
This view of Schrodinger's was called wave mechanics, and it was soon shown to be mathematically equivalent to Heisenberg's matrix mechanics of the year before (see 1925).
Erwin Schroedinger had devised a way of representing quantum mechanical processes by wave equations, known as wave mechanics.
In Schroedinger's third article of four in a series of title Quantisation as a Problem of Proper Values [1,2,3,4] with which he introduced wave mechanics, he applied his differential equation to the solution of the hydrogen atom in circular paraboloidal coordinates, and specified a method to calculate the intensities of spectral lines [3].
Bohm showed explicitly how parameters could indeed be introduced, into nonrelativistic wave mechanics, with the help of which the indeterministic description could be transformed into a deterministic one.
