A summary of quantum theory in 's albert einstein in 1930, einstein argued that quantum mechanics as a whole was inadequate as a final theory of the cosmos. Development of quantum mechanics then heisenberg remembered a principle of einstein's: that the theory decides what can be observed heisenberg applied this. • erwin schrödinger invented wave mechanics, a second form of quantum mechanics in which the state of a system is described by a wave function, the solution to schrödinger's equation matrix mechanics and wave mechanics, apparently incompatible, were shown to be equivalent. A brief history of quantum mechanics , and it sparked enormous interest in developing and extending the old quantum theory this development was hindered but. Born asked pauli to help heisenberg with the mathematics for the article, but pauli declined because he felt the mathematics would get in the way of the physics.
