Details

Both Einstein and Schrödinger disagreed with the orthodox ‘Copenhagen interpretation’ of quantum theory, which posits the impossibility of determining a particle’s position and momentum at the same time, instead believing a deterministic solution was possible via a ‘unified field theory’. This biographical account of their numerous attempts at a theory follows the evolution of their thinking, from their days as young physicists to later life when their friendship was soured by a public feud.
