Nobel Prize Chemistry

Density functional theory took a wrong turn recently**Chemie.de (press release)**

In recognition of this fact, **Walter Kohn** received a half of the 1998 Nobel Prize--the other half went to **John** A. **Pople**, who developed many computational methods and was the principal author of an extremely popular computational chemistry program ...

Studies of electron density lead to discovery of disturbing trends in modern computational chemistry**Phys.Org**

Density functional theory (DFT) and the Hohenberg-**Kohn** theorems comprised a breakthrough for computational methods in quantum chemistry. The theorems basically say that the average number of electrons located at any one point in space—otherwise ...

Welcome to Lab 2.0 Where Computers Replace Experimental Science**Singularity Hub**

Firstly, Pierre Hohenberg, **Walter Kohn** and Lu Jeu Sham turned the interaction problem on its head in the 1960s, greatly simplifying and improving theory. They showed that the electronic density — a quantum mechanical probability that is fairly easy to **...**

Walter Kohn, Holocaust Refugee and Noble Laureate, Dies at 93**Haaretz****Kohn** received the 1998 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, which he shared with British-born scientist **John Pople**. His research, which spanned the fields of physics and chemistry, applied quantum mechanics and advanced mathematics to explain complex chemical ...
