Dear Myron,

Please find below the latest page of the filmscript.

Barbara Janik is the god-daughter of Pope John Paul the Great (1920-2005) who was born in Wadowice Poland and became Pope in 1978.?
Barbara was able to arrange for Myron to lecture at Castel Gandolfo which is a small Italian town overlooking Lake Albano, 20 miles from Rome and is the summer residence of the Pope.?

Ahmed Hasanein joined Myron’s EDCL group at Aberystwyth on a Royal Society travel grant, and became an expert in ab initio simulation. ?
Myron and Ahmed later co-authored two books for World Scientific in the mid nineties. ?
Ahmed’s role was to build a potential from ab initio simulation using advanced Hartree Fock methods and similar. ?
This potential would then be parameterized for use in molecular dynamics code. ?
This pioneering work has subsequently been greatly developed for use with nanostructural and bionanostructural simulations. ?
Ahmed became a full professor at Alexandria in Egypt, his home country. ?
One of the books?
Myron and Ahmed produced together was?
on the photomagneton, published by World Scientific in 1994 while Myron was building up O(3) electrodynamics, a gauge theory homomorphic with the Barrett, Harmut and Lehnert electrodynamics. ?
The other book?
is an extensive review of ab initio methods in quantum chemistry, published by World Scientific in the same year.?

Mauro Ferrariofrom central Italy, joined Myron’s group following Myron’s successful joint venture with the Italian scientist Paolo Grigolini in the late seventies.?
The cooperative work with the Italian scientists was initiated when Paolo traveled to the Edward Davies Chemical Laboratories to develop work on the three variable Mori Theory Myron had developed for the far infra red.?
Subsequently Paolo’s post graduate student Mauro became Myron’s post doctoral fellow at Aberystwyth where he worked?
Mauro went on to become a post doctoral fellow at Cambridge University, working with Professor Ian MacDonald FRS.?
Mauro is now the Director of CECAM, the Centre for Atomic and Molecular Calculations, the European organization supported by several national research organizations and based in Lausanne. ?
Mauro Ferrario and Jozef Moscicki’s current work developed out of the pioneering molecular dynamics work that Myron had been involved in at Oxford in the mid seventies.?
The current chief scientist of Unilever, Dominic Tildesley, was part of Prof. Sir John Rowlinson’s group at Oxford, and Mauro and Myron developed this at Aberystwyth.?
Jozef was then working on the?
optical Kerr effect at the EDCL. ?
Jozef and Myron?
were reunited at Cornell in the late eighties and early?
nineties and Myron went on to port the TETRA code for Enrico Clementi’s group at IBM Kingston, and it became a great workhorse, producing about 300 papers in all leading journals. The code is now on http://www.aias.us. ?
Kerry

Many thanks again to Kerry, Castel Gandolfo could be one of the locations. I think that Ahmed is still professor of chemistry in Alexandria, another classical location, and Mauro’s CECAM is situated in the beautiful Swiss Alps and Lakes. Jozef’s Krako is called the Venice of the North.
