Secret History of Quantum Physics

An interesting post by Chad Orzel, about the great discoveries made during vacations:

"Erwin Schrödinger famously discovered the equation that bears his name while on a skiing holiday in 1925. He was accompanied on this vacation by one of his many girlfriends, but which of them went on the fateful trip has been lost to history-- Schrödinger kept exceedingly detailed diaries, but the volume covering the relevant period has been lost."

I'm eager to know, who was his girlfriend...
