Summary Annotation This volume encompasses a wide range of chemistry, with juxtaposition of, for example, boron hydrides, quantum mechanical calculations, and structure of a virus, providing a perspective on chemistry not offered by traditional texts. The breadth of this book will be stimulating and causereaders to think a little beyond the usual confines of a particular research field. The book begins with an autobiographical reflection by Lipscomb and includes an introduction to the science of William N. Lipscomb. This volume encompasses a wide range of chemistry, with a juxtaposition of, forexample, boron hydrides, quantum mechanical calculations, and structure of a virus, providing a perspective on chemistry not offered by traditional texts. The volume includes chapters on polyhedral boranes, oscillations, waves, and patterns in chemistry and biology, interference of atom lasers, chemical theory of bonding and NMR parameters, NMR and EPR of proteins, biological energy transduction, protein-ligand interactions, and relation of structures to the central dogma of biology, and concludes with comments on the relation of the retrovirus core to the function of this molecularmachine.
