Remembering David Chandler
We are sad to announce that Professor Pierre Turq died on the 20th of May 2015. He will be missed by his friends and colleagues.
On January 14th, 2013, Konrad Singer, emeritus Professor at Royal Holloway College, passed away at the age of 95. Konrad was a modest man and this may explain why it is not widely known that he was the first scientist in the UK to carry Monte Carlo/Molecular Dynamics simulations. Together with his students and postdocs he made important contributions to the field.
