    Per was conscientious, careful, and keen on explaining thoroughly. Scientists of his ilk are rare.

    That's a very sad new. I knew Per in the mid of '90s when I was visiting the group of Robert J. Buenker in Wuppertal. Along different lines, both of us were involved in the ab initio, non-adiabatic spectroscopy of triatomics, and I was strongly...  more
