Per-Olov Loewdin was the principal driving force behind the establishement of the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry and Advances in Quantum Chemistry.
The 49 chapters of the two volumes are a fitting tribute to the legacy of one of the most important scientists of the 20th century. Most chapters highlight Loewdin's scientific contributions through his publications and his personal communications.
This two-volume set will provide many hours of stimulating and engaging reading for serious students of quantum chemistry. It provides an anecdotal record of the development of the field, valuable insight into the current status of the discipline, and perhaps most importantly the context of some important problems that await the attention of future generations of researchers.
