The vice-chancellor of Allahabad University has asked the Indian Government for permission to bring to India the noted Austrian scientist, Prof. Erwin Schrodinger, one of the world’s foremost authorities on “wave mechanics.”

Prof. Schrodinger, who has been elected by the university’s executive council to the chair of physics, is now living in Dublin. He shared the Nobel Prize in physics in 1933 with Dr. Paul Dirac of Cambridge.
