    Ernest Solvay, philanthropist and organizer of the world-famous Solvay conferences on physics, discovered a profitable way of making soda ash in   Solvay gave Heisenberg an opportunity to discuss his new uncertainty principle theory. Max Born's statistical interpretation of the wave function ended determinism in atomic world.

    Lectures delivered at the Université libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium, , and at the Solvay Conference at the University of Texas at Austin; also at SUNY, Stony Brook, and Cornell University, Ithaca, New York; at the University of California at Irvine, and Caltech, Pasadena, California; at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, and UNESCO, Paris, during. This debate went on for days at that Solvay conference and continued on 3 years later at the next conference," Dowling writes in his book, Schrödinger's Killer App: Race to Build the World's.

      “This book does full justice to the great reputation of the Solvay Conferences. Some of the discussions are on the same topics as in the old days, many are new. It testifies that fundamental physics is still a thriving field of research.”.

The early Solvay Conferences on Physics played a significant role in the evolution of Physics in the 20th century. They owe their existence to the generous patronage of the Belgian chemist Ernest Solvay, a lover of Science, who co-founded the Solvay Chemical company with his brother in Solvay Institutes would welcome a book giving a survey of the scientific content of the reports and discussions at the Solvay Conferences, and he thought that it might also be of interest to physicists and historians of science.
