Subject: Schrodinger equation origins

One of my intro Modern Physics texts says regarding the genesis (origin)of

the Schrodinger wave equation "Like the classical wave equation, the

Schrodinger equation relates the time and space derivatives of the wave

function. Schrodinger's reasoning is somewhat difficult to follow and is

not important for our purposes. In any case, the Schrodinger equation

cannot be derived, just as Newton's laws of motion cannot be derived."

Can the list give me a sense of Schrodinger's line of reasoning in

developing his wave equation?

Thanks,

Larry
