Google's Doodle celebrates Schrödinger

Today Google celebrates the 126th anniversary of Erwin Schrödinger, with this fantastic doodle:
Doodle do Google para comemorar o 126º aniversário de Schrödinger
Google's Doodle to celebrate the 126th Schrödinger's anniversary.
This Physicist, born in Austria, created the famous wave equation for a quantum system (quantum = packages), that it describes the behavior of particles in a tiny scale. This equation allowed to pass from classical mechanics (continuous energy) to quantum mechanics (discontinuous energy) - initially found in experiments and equations in the study of Planck's blackbody radiation - and the solution presented by Schrödinger, with the Dirac notation, is:
schrodinger equation
In January 1926, Schrödinger published in Annalen der Physik the paper "Quantisierung als Eigenwertproblem" (Quantization as an Eigenvalue Problem) on wave mechanics and what is now known as the Schrödinger equation. In this paper he gave a "derivation" of the wave equation for time independent systems, and he showed its energy eigenvalues ​​to correct the hydrogenic atom.” Wikipedia

In addition to this work, Schrödinger presented other documents that it was also considered of great importance by the scientific community.
Due to this work, especially by his famous equation, Schrödinger received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1933.
