The specialized courses were of topical interest and based on Sommerfeld's research interests; material from these courses appeared later in the scientific literature publications of Sommerfeld. The first two volumes were on theory, and the latter two were on applications in geophysics, astronomy, and technology.

The text also discusses the quantization of vibrational energy and rotational energy. In sommeefeld projects Wikimedia Commons Wikiquote Wikisource. He also introduced the fine-structure constant and pioneered X-ray wave theory.

He introduced the 2nd quantum number azimuthal quantum number and the 4th quantum number spin quantum number. At the end of the 19th and the early 20th century, there were only four ordinarius professorships for theoretical physics: His Sommerfeld identity and Sommerfeld integrals are still to the present day the most common way to solve this kind of problem.
