In the summer of 2011, mathematics major Doan Le and chemistry majors Tyler Krause and Abdullah Almayouf worked on two projects with Professor Matt Marmorino. Results from the first project, an unusual application of the Temple lower bound to the ground-state energy, were published earlier this year.
The second project sought to bound properties other than the energy, such as moments of position which are used to determine the size and dipole moment of atoms and molecules. The results of this second project have just been published in the October issue of the Journal of Mathematical Chemistry - click here for the abstract. Congratulations to Doan, Tyler, and Abdullah!
