I profoundly regret to announce that these collections of Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrödinger, and Eric R. Kandel will be my final three torrents.

My circumstances are such that I find myself living in a building that I discovered to be controlled by a ruthless criminal gang. Over the last two years I have been harassed and threatened continually because they fear their crimes (fraud certainly, but most probably also money laundering and prostitution, among others) being publicly exposed. In recent months these cruel and sadistic attacks have become daily, and now hourly, occurrences. The impact on my mental and physical well-being has become intolerable, and I cannot continue working under these conditions.

It has been my great pleasure to have served the file-sharing community for more than 10 years. Researching, scanning, and building these torrent collections gave my life an entirely new and unexpected meaning, and I poured heart and soul into almost all of them. I have been deeply gratified to receive your many kind comments and encouragement through the years, and it has been that support that has kept me going through some challenging times. Without your help, I would never have got this far.

My seedbox subscription is scheduled to expire in February 2026, so you should have no difficulty downloading my collections at least until that time. As always, if you find my torrents valuable I hope you will help to seed them for as long as you can.

"What thou lovest well remains,
the rest is dross
What thou lov'st well shall not be reft from thee
What thou lov'st well is thy true heritage"


* Erwin Schrodinger - Collected Works (15 books)

ERWIN SCHRÖDINGER (1887 — 1961) was an Austrian theoretical physicist who contributed to the wave theory of matter and to other fundamentals of quantum mechanics. He is recognized for postulating the Schrödinger equation, an equation that provides a way to calculate the wave function of a system and how it changes dynamically in time. He shared the 1933 Nobel Prize for Physics with British physicist P.A.M. Dirac "for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory".

In a six-month period in 1926, he produced the papers that gave the foundations of quantum wave mechanics. In those papers he described his partial differential equation that is the basic equation of quantum mechanics and bears the same relation to the mechanics of the atom as Newton's equations of motion bear to planetary astronomy. Adopting a proposal made by Louis de Broglie in 1924 that particles of matter have a dual nature and in some situations act like waves, Schrödinger introduced a theory describing the behaviour of such a system by a wave equation that is now known as the Schrödinger equation. The solutions to Schrödinger's equation, unlike the solutions to Newton's equations, are wave functions that can only be related to the probable occurrence of physical events. The definite and readily visualized sequence of events of the planetary orbits of Newton is, in quantum mechanics, replaced by the more abstract notion of probability.

This aspect of the quantum theory made Schrödinger and several other physicists profoundly unhappy, and he devoted much of his later life to formulating philosophical objections to the generally accepted interpretation of the theory that he had done so much to create. His most famous objection was the 1935 thought experiment that later became known as Schrödinger's cat. A cat is locked in a steel box with a small amount of a radioactive substance such that after one hour there is an equal probability of one atom either decaying or not decaying. If the atom decays, a device smashes a vial of poisonous gas, killing the cat. However, until the box is opened and the atom's wave function collapses, the atom's wave function is in a superposition of two states: decay and non-decay. Thus, the cat is in a superposition of two states: alive and dead. Schrödinger thought this outcome "quite ridiculous," and when and how the fate of the cat is determined has been a subject of much debate among physicists.

In addition, he wrote many works on various aspects of physics: statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, physics of dielectrics, colour theory, electrodynamics, general relativity, and cosmology, and he made several attempts to construct a unified field theory. In his book WHAT IS LIFE? (1944) Schrödinger addressed the problems of genetics, looking at the phenomenon of life from the point of view of physics. He also paid great attention to the philosophical aspects of science, ancient, and oriental philosophical concepts, ethics, and religion.

Of all the physicists of his generation, Schrödinger stands out because of his extraordinary intellectual versatility. He made significant contributions to nearly all branches of science and philosophy, an almost unique accomplishment at a time when the trend was toward increasing technical specialization in these disciplines. His study of ancient Greek science and philosophy, summarized in his NATURE AND THE GREEKS (1954), gave him both an admiration for the Greek invention of the scientific view of the world and a skepticism toward the relevance of science as a unique tool with which to unravel the ultimate mysteries of human existence. Schrödinger's own metaphysical outlook, as expressed in his last book, MY VIEW OF THE WORLD (1961), closely paralleled the mysticism of the Vedanta.
