In 1963, before computers became “transistorized”, Dr. Csizmadia used a vacuum-tube computer at M.I.T., an IBM 709, to perform the very first Gaussian Quantum Molecular Computation on an organic molecular (HCOF)*. With this trailblazing accomplishment, the field of organic chemistry became computational. This achievement resulted in the science of chemistry changing from an “empirical” to an “exact” science. Since that time, he has published more than 500 research papers and 13 scienific books. Currently, he is writing his 14th book
