This book is a tribute to the life and work of J Q Chen. The contributions of Chen to nuclear and molecular physics are discussed vis-a-vis present developments in these fields. Among other subjects, the present status of microscopic theories of the interacting boson model in nuclear physics and the theory of symmetry adaptation of molecular vibrations in molecular physics are reviewed. The latter theory is particularly useful for large molecular species such as fullerenes, where icosahedral symmetry plays a fundamental role.
"Knowing the beauty of life, a gift, a home, holds the weapon of contentment, so never sway ..." In "Reaching for the Beauty and Facts of Life, " Betty Anderson shares her first compilation of free-verse poetry that encourages you to take a second look at the world in which we all live and embrace differences, fears, and loves of all humankind.

While incorporating subtle life lessons into her poetry about friendship, family, and love, Anderson also interweaves historical elements, as she shares the contributions of African Americans and awakens others to the fears we all face in today's world. This moving collection of poetry will persuade you to reach into your heart and soul to create memorable changes and accept the beauty of life.
