Professor Emeritus William (Bill) Miller’s daughters and coworkers organized a zoom 80th birthday party for him in March. The party included lots of reminisces from Bill, his colleagues, and many of his former coworkers.
During his career, Bill made many profound and diverse contributions to theoretical physical chemistry of molecular motion, from semiclassical mechanics to reactive scattering, and from chemical kinetics to path integrals. Bill literally shaped the way theoretical dynamicists think. His enthusiasm and deep insight set a model for students and colleagues and will continue to provide a source of inspiration for future generations of theoretical chemists.
