About the Author

Mihai V. Putz is a laureate in physics (1997), with an MS degree in spectroscopy (1999), and PhD degree in chemistry (2002), with many post doctorate stages: in chemistry (2002-2003) and in physics (2004, 2010, 2011) at the University of Calabria, Italy, and Free University of Berlin, Germany, respectively. He is currently Associate Professor of theoretical and computational physical chemistry at West University of Timisoara, Romania. He has made valuable contributions in computational, quantum, and physical chemistry through seminal works that appeared in many international journals. He is actively promoting a new method of defining electronegativity, DFE (Density Functional Electronegativity), among new enzyme kinetics (Logistic Enzyme Kinetics), and of new structure-activity relationship (SPECTRAL-SAR) model for a unitary quantum approach of the chemical reactivity targeting the bio-, pharmaco-and ecological analytical description.

Recently, he is Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Chemical Modelling and the International Journal of Environmental Sciences. He is member of many professional societies and has received several national and international awards from the Romanian National Authority of Scientific Research (2008), the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD (2000, 2004, 2011) and the Center of International Cooperation of Free University Berlin (2010). He is the leader of the Laboratory of Computational and Structural Physical Chemistry at Chemistry Department of West University of Timisoara, Romania, where he conducts research in the fields of quantum chemistry and quantitative-structure activity relationships (QSAR). In 2010 Mihai V. Putz was declared through a national competition the Best Researcher of Romania.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book addresses the need of refreshing the quantum theory by merging the fermionic and bosonic features of matter; the fruitful field of chemical bond offers such perspective, and it is originally addressed by the author in this monograph. It is a concise, competent, and simulative text, certainly an asset for any advanced student or researcher in quantum physical chemistry.”
—Prof. dr. Vasile Chiş, Faculty of Physics, Babeş-Bolyai University, Romania

“Informative and rigorous, this treatise on modern quantum theory will be highly appreciated by undergraduates and graduates students and professional researchers as well. Quantum theories face since their beginning the challenge of explaining the nature of the chemical bond and the structure and the properties of the matter. Prof. Mihai Putz brings the reader right into the middle of the ab-initio arena by presenting in details the Density Functional Theory (DFT), the best available tool we have so far to understand electronic bonding and reactivity of N-electrons systems. The link to Bose–Einstein condensates represents a crucial passage of this recommendable book that finally introduces the bondon, the original particle corresponding to the chemical bond (field). In the year of Higg’s particle consecration, Prof. Putz’s new bosons promise a substantial increase of our knowledge of the chemical bond.”
—Dr.Ottorino Ori, Actinium Chemical Research, Rome, Italy
