Rudolph A Marcus QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
About 1960, it became clear that it was best for me to bring the experimental part of my research program to a close - there was too much to do on the theoretical aspects - and I began the process of winding down the experiments.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
After a subsequent interview at Brooklyn Poly, I was hired, and life as a fully independent researcher began.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
After some minor pieces of theoretical study that I worked on, a student in my statistical mechanics class brought to my attention a problem in polyelectrolytes.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
Being exposed to theory, stimulated by a basic love of concepts and mathematics, was a marvelous experience.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
During my McGill years, I took a number of math courses, more than other students in chemistry.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
During the first three months I read everything I could lay my hands on regarding reaction rate theory, including Marcelin's classic 1915 theory which came within one small step of the Transition State Theory of 1935.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
Growing up, mostly in Montreal, I was an only child of loving parents.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
I admired my father's athletic prowess - he excelled in several sports - and my mother's expressive singing and piano playing.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
I felt at the time that it was pointless to continue with RRKM since few experimental data were available. Some of our experiments were intended to produce more.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
I have always loved going to school.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
I spent a year and a half during 1960-61 at the Courant Mathematical Institute at New York University, auditing many courses which were, in part, beyond me, but which were, nevertheless, highly instructive.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
I spent the next years at McGill University, for both undergraduate and, as was the custom of the time, graduate study.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
I undertook an experimental research program on both gas phase and solution reaction rates, wrote the 1952 RRKM papers, and wondered what to do next in theoretical research.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
In 1964, I joined the faculty of the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and I never undertook any further experiments there.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
In 1978, I accepted an offer from the California Institute of Technology to come there as the Arthur Amos Noyes Professor of Chemistry.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
In addition, six months after arrival in Chapel Hill, I was also blessed by marriage to Laura Hearne, an attractive graduate student in sociology at UNC.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
In the latter I drew, in most but not all cases, upon experimental findings or puzzles for theoretical problems to study.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
It was, and in February 1949 I took the train south, heading for the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. I was impressed on arrival there by the red clay, the sandy walks, and the graciousness of the people.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
Life would be indeed easier if the experimentalists would only pause for a little while!
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
My education at Baron Byng High School was excellent, with dedicated masters (boys and girls were separate).
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
My first encounters with McGill University came when I was still in a baby carriage.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
My interest in the sciences started with mathematics in the very beginning, and later with chemistry in early high school and the proverbial home chemistry set.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
My life as a working theorist began three months after this preliminary study and background reading, when Oscar gently nudged me toward working on a particular problem.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
My mother used to wheel me about the campus when we lived in that neighborhood and, as she recounted years later, she would tell me that I would go to McGill.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
Nevertheless, the realization that breaking a pencil point would have far less disastrous consequences played little or no role, I believe, in this decision to explore theory!
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
The photochemistry group was headed by E.W.R. Steacie, an international figure in the study of free-radical reactions and a major force in the development of the basic research program at NRC.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
There were no theoretical chemists in Canada at the time, and as students I don't think we ever considered how or where theories were conceived.
Quotation of Rudolph A Marcus
This electrostatics background made me fully ready in 1955 to treat a problem I had just read about on electron transfers.
