Molecular Machines: the Coronavirus SARSCoV2 Menace. Part I
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither … Continue reading
Physical Chemistry. The Particle in a Box I: the Schrödinger Equation in Onedimension
In 1926, the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger (18871961) made a fundamental mathematical discovery that had a profound impact on the study of the molecular world (in 1933, Schrödinger was awarded with the Nobel prize in Physics just 7 years later … Continue reading

Modelling Patterns and Forms in Nature II: (Easter) Eggs
When you start with a portrait and search for a pure form, a clear volume, through successive eliminations, you arrive inevitably at the egg. Likewise, starting with the egg and following the same process in reverse, one finishes with the portrait. PABLO PICASSO Easter … Continue reading
