Biography

Max Born (born 11 December 1882 in Breslau, died January 5, 1970 in Göttingen) was a German mathematician and physicist. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1954.

Max Born studied mathematics under David Hilbert and his doctorate in 1906 in Göttingen. He became extraordinary professor of theoretical physics in Berlin, where he collaborated with Max Planck, Albert Einstein and Walther Nernst.

From 1921 to 1933 he was professor at Göttingen. Here he developed together with Wolfgang Pauli, Werner Heisenberg and Pascual Jordan much of the modern quantum mechanics. The most important results belong the so-called Born-Oppenheimer approximation, which in 1928 led to orbitalmodellen.

In 1933, Max Born, because of his and his wife's partially Jewish ancestry deprived of his professorship and emigrated to Edinburgh where he worked as a professor, until he in 1954, the same year he received the Nobel Prize, returned to their home country where he worked until his died.

Besides his scientific work occupied himself with philosophical and political themes. He argued, among other things against nuclear armament.

Thurs Gymnasiums are named after him, in Germering at Munich and in Backnang at Stuttgart. The same Max-Born-Institut in Berlin.

His granddaughter is singer Olivia Newton-John.
