Rudolph Pariser

Rudolph Pariser in front of a blackboard with quantum calculations, contemplating molecular model, 1950s. With better instruments scientists were able to measure and record the seemingly random movements of tiny bits of matter. Partially through harnessing this data, people like Rudolph Pariser were able to arrive at important mathematical simplifications, such as the Pariser-Parr-Pople method, to predict how matter would behave.
