Christoph Schiller, the author of the Motion Mountain Textbook, was born in 1960 and is European. He is married and has two children. Raised bilingually in Varese, he studied physics at the Universität Stuttgart and received his Ph.D. in physics at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, in the department of Ilya Prigogine. He has lived and worked in various countries in Europe and Asia.
As a physicist, Christoph Schiller is convinced that exploring and applying physics can provide as much pleasure as anything else in life - and he explains why in the present text. He started the Motion Mountain textbook project in Yokohama in 1990 and wrote most of the text in Eindhoven, Berlin and Munich.
He sometimes writes about how experience with customers and companies can
help to improve teaching, and to improve research and to
improve LaTeX, and about how experience with physics can improve management.
Both Christoph Schiller and the Motion Mountain Physikverein fully endorse the rules of good scientific practice of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft/German Research Foundation.
