A Physicist's Perspective on the Insufficiencies and Generalizations of Quantum Chemistry My Undergraduate and Graduate Studies in Italy on the Insufficiencies of Quantum Mechanics and Chem­ istry I was first exposed to quantum chemistry during my undergraduate courses in physics at the University of Naples, Italy, in the late 1950s. My teacher was Prof. Bakunin, a well known lady chemist in Europe at that time, who escaped from Russia with her family during the ad­ vent of communism. My three exams with her (inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and laboratory chemistry) were, by far, the most dif­ ficult exams of my life (although I did please Prof. Bakunin during the examinations) . Besides chemistry, during my undergraduate studies I plunged into the study of physics, with particular reference to quantum mechanics and its mathematical structure. My mathematics teacher was Prof. Cac­ cioppoli, one of the most famous Italian mathematicians of that time, who taught me the necessity of advanced mathematics for quantitative physical studies. By reading the works of the founders of contemporary physics, it was easy for me to see the lack of final character of quantum mechanics already in these undergraduate studies.

Editorial Reviews

`In this pioneering monograph, the Italian-American physicist Ruggero Maria Santilli has submitted a structural generalization-covering of quantum mechanics and chemistry under the name of 'hadronic mechanics and chemistry' which appears to resolve the above problematic aspects. In fact, the new mechanics achieves essentially exact representations ofmolecular characteristics; consequently permits exact thermochemical calculations; introduces a new, strongly attractive force between valence pairs in singlet coupling with the strength needed to represent reality; restricts valence bonds solely to electron pairs in singlet couplings; eliminates the prediction of an arbitrary number of atomic constituents in molecular structures; and correctly represents the diamagnetic or paramagnetic character of the various molecules. Finally, and quite remarkably after all the preceding achievements, Santilli presents the application of the new methods and the chemical species of magnecules to the industrial production of a new fuel he calls MagneGas® (see, whose combustion exhaust is so clean that the new fuel has been certified not to require catalytic converters. In a nutshell, the monograph lends credence the view expressed repeatedly by Santilli in earlier work, that "there cannot be really new scientific theories without really new mathematics, and there cannot be really new mathematics without new numbers".' Professor Jeremy Dunning Davies, University of Hull, UK `That Professor Santilli, repeatedly nominated for the Nobel Prize, is extremely well equipped and capable to both ends is amply documented, first and foremost by his work, but also by the biographic and bibliographic sections of the monograph which deserve to be briefly summarised as well. He proposed Hadronic Mechanics already in 1978 jointly with its basic Lie-admissible structure when he was at Harvard University under US Department of Energy support. Its study was continued by mathematicians, theoreticians and experimentalists too numerous to quote here (but included in the book's references). However, Santilli remains to this day the most active contributor, eventually bringing the venture to full mathematical maturity in 1996, physical maturity in 1997 and geometric maturity in 1998.'
