Heisenberg's "attitude" about the wave formulation of QM is vastly exaggerated. By 1929 he was lecturing in great detail on Schrödinger's equation at the University of Chicago, and next year he published his classic introductory book The Physical Principles of the Quantum Theory covering it extensively. He understood that, as the virtual initiator of the field, he had to cover its huge span, and was in close touch with both Jordan and Dirac who explored the link between the two formulations much more thoroughly than Schrödinger. This mature attitude is already reflected in the advice he gave to graduate student Dirac in 1925.
Quoting from The Strangest Man -— The Hidden Life of Paul Dirac, Mystic of the Atom by Graham Farmelo (Basic Books, 2009),
At first, Dirac was annoyed by Schrödinger’s theory, as he resented even the thought of suspending work on the new quantum mechanics and starting afresh. But in late May, as he was finishing the writing of his Ph.D. thesis, he received a persuasive letter from Heisenberg urging him to take Schrödinger’s work seriously. This wise advice was ironic coming from Heisenberg, an opponent of the rival theory, who had written to Wolfgang Pauli in early June, ‘The more I reflect on the physical portion of Schrödinger’s theory the more disgusting I find it. What Schrödinger writes on the visualizability of his theory is probably not quite right. In other words, it’s crap.’ Schrödinger gave as good as he got, dismissing the mathematical arcana of Heisenberg’s theory and the idea of quantum jumps. The two theorists clashed unpleasantly when they first met a month later at a packed seminar in Munich, the first skirmish in what was to be a long and acrimonious dispute.
Dirac ignored Schrödinger’s theory in his Ph.D. thesis, ‘Quantum Mechanics’, the first to be submitted anywhere on the subject. [...]
In very short order, Dirac would go on to make trenchant contributions to formulating the time-dependent Schrödinger equation.
Heisenberg's "attitude" is not entirely unwarranted. The community at the time was far more conversant with differential equations than with matrix techniques, an accidental mathematics education shortcoming, giving the wave formulation an instant popular advantage. Nevertheless, matrix techniques have ultimately triumphed over a century; connections to classical mechanics, such as phase-space quantization are quite closer to the matrix mechanics spirit than to wave functions. In fact, Dirac's fusion language has made the two formulations virtual "dialects" of the same formal structure, routinely used side-by-side.
