Reminiscences of Ahmed H. Zewail: Photons, Electrons and What Else?: A Portrait from Close Range. Remembrances of his Group Members and Family
In this unique illustrated book, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, senior visiting scholars, and staff describe their personal experiences in working with the late Prof. Ahmed H. Zewail at Caltech. Their reminiscences provide snapshots of their rich interactions, reflecting the great scientific achievements, as well as the human and humorous sides of Ahmed H. Zewail.
The contributors tell us their stories covering a period of forty tears, beginning from the time of Zewail’s arrival at Caltech in 1976. Some of them cover the time when Zewail was starting his pioneering work on femtochemistry at the end of 80’s, while others relate events long after he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (1999) and had embarked on a new career in ultrafast electron imaging. The aims and scope of this book is to provide both scientists and non-scientists descriptions of the experiences of scientists in the early or mature stages of their careers when interacting with one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century, from developing the field of femtochemistry to pioneering ultrafast electron diffraction and imaging technology. The personal dimension of Zewail’s leadership is reflected in all the contributions, and highlighted by special tributes from two of his children.
The scientific and anecdotal stories recounted in the book give a rare view of experiences in shaping science. The reader will get firsthand accounts of how a Nobel Prize winner interacted daily with his co-workers to develop the laser-based science and technology for which he was internationally recognized. The recounted experiences may serve as a basis for scientists developing their own research, tutoring students, and supervising postdoctoral researchers.

How do vectors help us work out the conformation of DNA or proteins? How do matrices help us tackle problems in quantum mechanics? What have differential equations to do with molecular dynamics, or the spread of disease? The use of mathematics is one of the most powerful tools available to a chemist. Applying Maths in the Chemical and Biomolecular Sciences shows why, using an extensive array of examples to demonstrate how mathematics can be applied to probe and understand chemical and biological systems. The use of maths as tool in contemporary research has been enhanced through the use of computer software. Applying Maths mirrors current practice by embedding the use of software into the text, showing clearly to the student how the use of maths and the use of software now go hand-in-hand. The application of maths has given us fresh insights into chemical and biomolecular systems, and has pushed forward the boundaries of our understanding. Applying Maths in the Chemical and Biomolecular Sciences is the perfect resource to help you master the skills required to study these systems, and broaden your own understanding.
