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.
