Schrödinger’s equation is the central theory for describing the properties of atoms and molecules. It explains almost all experimental observables in chemistry and also in many other areas such as materials science and molecular biology. Schrödinger proposed his equation in 1926 but it is only quite recently that it has become possible to compute solutions with good accuracy for systems with many electrons. This talk will describe this progress and will also give an original view of the interesting time Schrödinger spent as a college fellow in Oxford in the 1930s.
