Today is the 135th birthday of Max Born, the father of Quantum MechanicsQuantum Mechanics was introduced in the Physics curriculum of all major universities of the world since 1930s. Without Max Born's development of Quantum Mechanics, today's modern world would perhaps not have been the same. It is a branch of Physics which studies matter at the smallest possible form.
Max Born is considered the father of Quantum Mechanics. He was born on this day (11th December) of 1882 at Breslau. Breslau was at that time part of Germany, but now it is included in Poland. He got his PhD from prestigious Gottingen University and taught Theroetical Physics there. However, on the eve of World War II, he emigrated to Britain and started teeaching at University of Edinburgh. He got Noble Prize in Physics in 1954.
Google has very appropriately created a Google Doodle in the memory of Max Born, the father of Quantum Mechanics.
