August 29, 2018, is the one-hundredth birthday of Clemens C.J. Roothaan, a member of the Society of Catholic Scientists, who is famous for his work in atomic and molecular physics, including the Hartree-Fock-Roothaan equations. A concentration camp survivor, he went on to a long and distinguished career as a professor of chemistry and physics. His great-great-great uncle was Superior General of the Jesuit order from 1829-1853.
Immediately preceding the 2018 SCS Annual Conference, there will be a Symposium co-sponsored by The Thomistic Institute and the Society of Catholic Scientists. Graduate students or advanced undergraduates in the natural sciences or philosophy are encouraged to apply to attend the Symposium. The deadline is April 1.
