Neuware - Per-Olov Löwdin's stature has been a symbol of the world of quantum theory during the past five decades, through his basic contributions to the development of the conceptual framework of Quantum Chemistry and introduction of the fundamental concepts; through a staggering number of regular summer schools, winter institutes, innumerable lectures at Uppsala, Gainesville and elsewhere, and Sanibel Symposia; by founding the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry and Advances in Quantum Chemistry; and through his vision of the possible and his optimism for the future, which has inspired generations of physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and biologists to devote their lives to molecular electronic theory and dynamics, solid state, and quantum biology. Fundamental World of Quantum Chemistry: Volumes I, II and III form a collection of papers dedicated to the memory of Per-Olov Löwdin. These volumes are of interest to a broad audience of quantum, theoretical, physical, biological, and computational chemists; atomic, molecular, and condensed matter physicists; biophysicists; mathematicians working in many-body theory; and historians and philosophers of natural science. The volumes will be accessible to all levels, from students, PhD students, and postdocs to their supervisors. 677 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781402025839

Synopsis:

Per-Olov Löwdin's stature has been a symbol of the world of quantum theory during the past five decades, through his basic contributions to the development of the conceptual framework of Quantum Chemistry and introduction of the fundamental concepts; through a staggering number of regular summer schools, winter institutes, innumerable lectures at Uppsala, Gainesville and elsewhere, and Sanibel Symposia; by founding the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry and Advances in Quantum Chemistry; and through his vision of the possible and his optimism for the future, which has inspired generations of physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and biologists to devote their lives to molecular electronic theory and dynamics, solid state, and quantum biology.

Fundamental World of Quantum Chemistry: Volumes I, II and III form a collection of papers dedicated to the memory of Per-Olov Löwdin. These volumes are of interest to a broad audience of quantum, theoretical, physical, biological, and computational chemists; atomic, molecular, and condensed matter physicists; biophysicists; mathematicians working in many-body theory; and historians and philosophers of natural science. The volumes will be accessible to all levels, from students, PhD students, and postdocs to their supervisors.

Review:

Löwdin (1916-2000) was one of a special group of legendary figures of the past century who made immeasurable contributions to the discipline of quantum chemistry through his seminal publications on a remarkable diversity of topics.

He established the Uppsala Quantum Chemistry Group in 1955 and the Quantum Theory Project at the University of Florida in 1960. Under Löwdin's leadership, the Uppsala and Gainesville groups rose quickly to rank among the three or four most influential theoretical groups in the world.

Volume III is a worthy companion to the earlier volumes. The 28 contributions cover a broad range of topics, most of which make a direct connection with Löwdin's scientific contributions.

This volume, like the earlier two, provides a unique anecdotal record of the development of quantum chemistry and insight about one of its most engaging advocates. It is also a testament to the breadth and current status of the discipline, and a harbinger of some important problems that await the attention of future generations of researchers.

For example, at the WATOC Congress in Toronto in 1990, Löwdin declared that "One of the most urgent problems of modern quantum chemistry is to treat the motions of the atomic nuclei and the electrons on a more or less equivalent basis.
