Christoph Schiller, the author of the Motion Mountain Textbook, was born in 1960 and is European. Raised 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. Christoph Schiller is an innovation manager. He 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, wrote most of the text in Eindhoven and Munich and is now improving it during his business trips. He is married and has two children. He sometimes writes about how experience with customers and companies can help to improve teaching and to improve research, and about how experience with physics can improve management.
