Nobel Work Marries Newton’s Apple to Schrodinger’s Cat
The 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel, “for the development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems.” The essence of their work can be summed up by a quote from probably the most famous Nobelist of them all: Albert Einstein’s advice to “make everything as simple as possible, but no simpler.” This year’s Nobelists have applied that principle to the computer modeling of complex chemical reactions and the molecules that participate in them.
