The principle of quantum mechanics is understanding the physical phenomena that happen at nanoscopic scales. It deals in giving a mathematical description of the wave-like and particle-like behavior of all energy and matter in the known universe. Schrödinger contributed greatly to this science. He developed his own branch of quantum physics, known as wave mechanics which revolved around the Schrödinger equation. All of it had to do with the mechanics of matter and energy at atomic and subatomic levels moving either as particles or as waves, and how they were shown on a chart called a spectrum.
