His dissertation advisor was the mathematician Ferdinand von Lindemann ,  and he also benefited from classes with mathematicians Adolf Hurwitz and David Hilbert and physicist Emil Wiechert. He completed his obligatory military service in September , and for the next eight years continued voluntary eight-week military service. With his turned up moustache, his physical build, his Prussian bearing, and the fencing scar on his face, he gave the impression of being a colonel in the hussars.
The first two volumes were on theory, and the latter two were on applications in geophysics, astronomy, and technology. This appointment provided enough income to eventually marry Johanna. At Aachen, he developed the theory of hydrodynamics , which would retain his interest for a long time. Over his 32 years of teaching at Munich, Sommerfeld taught general and specialized courses, as well as holding seminars and colloquia.
There was also a two-hour weekly presentation for the discussion of problems. The objective of these special lectures was to grapple with current issues in theoretical physics and for Sommerfeld and the students to garner a systematic comprehension of the issue, independent of whether or not they were successful in solving the problem posed by the current issue.
For a list of students, please see the list organized by type. Kemble ,  William V. Morse ,   Howard Robertson ,  and Wojciech Rubinowicz  went on to become famous in their own right.
He invited collaboration from them, and their ideas often influenced his own views in physics. He entertained them in his home and met with them in cafes before and after seminars and colloquia. Sommerfeld owned an alpine ski hut to which students were often invited for discussions of physics as demanding as the sport.
His mathematical contributions to the theory helped its acceptance by the skeptics. Since any reputable scientist could have their article published without refereeing, time between submission and publication was very rapid — as fast as two weeks time.
This greatly stimulated the scientific theoretical developments, especially that of quantum mechanics in Germany at that time, as this journal was the preferred publication vehicle for the new generation of quantum theorists with avant-garde views. The new theory solved many of the problems predicting thermal properties the original model had and became known as the Drude—Sommerfeld model. Sommerfeld was a great theoretician, and besides his invaluable contributions to the quantum theory, he worked in other fields of physics, such as the classical theory of electromagnetism.
For example, he proposed a solution to the problem of a radiating hertzian dipole over a conducting earth, which over the years led to many applications. His Sommerfeld identity and Sommerfeld integrals are still to the present day the most common way to solve this kind of problem. I would now be willing to see Germany disappear as a power and merge into a pacified Europe. Translated by Raymond J. Physik  28, ; 62, 95 ; 81, Address upon receipt of the Oersted Medal.

The seminar was, at first, only a forum where students were presented with problems related to the theme of the main lecture. The pedagogical activity that offered the closest contact with current research themes, before the First World War, was the regular Munich Wednesday Colloquium. Occasionally, the Munich theorists invited speakers from other universities to present their most recent papers in an informal environment. Despite the outbreak of the First World War, Sommerfeld conducted his regular main lecture course four days a week in the morning for one hour, accompanied by a two-hour seminar each Tuesday afternoon; the advanced lectures were scheduled for one or two hours weekly; the colloquium took place on Wednesday evenings, or sometimes on another day of the week—but with few interruptions throughout the war. However, there were changes due to the absence of students who had been drafted for war service. In particular, the Munich professors offered lectures for non-professionals, addressed to colleagues from other faculties. The audience was about 80 people, among them 12 colleagues, mainly chemists, medical scientists, and philosophers.
