Guidance to Students

To students who are interested in learning enough to become practicing theoretical chemists, I suggest they pursue the references and web links offered on this site, and, equally importantly, enroll in college-level mathematics classes including at least calculus, differential equations (including partial differential equations), and linear algebra. The more mathematics, physics, and chemistry one can take in undergraduate school, the better. Also, it helps greatly to have experience using computers and writing programs in Fortran or in C.

An Electronic Phone Book of Chemists can be found at Steven Bachrach's Site at Trinity University

A list of Nobel Prize Winners
in Chemistry since 1901 is also interesting to look through
An excellent source of information about the faculty at many U.S. graduate schools is provided in the Directory of Graduate Research
published by the American Chemical Society.The American Chemical Society's homepage, also has links to several graduate schools.
