Abstract

Sylvio Canuto obtained his PhD in 1979 at the University of Uppsala (Sweden). His scientific contributions include about 180 well-cited articles. He is presently a fulltime Professor at the Institute of Physics of the Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil. He was a member of the Editorial Board of Chemical Physics Letters for two terms and is presently serving on the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, (since 2001), Journal of Computational Methods in Science and Engineering (since 2006), Specialist Editor of Computer Physics Communications (1987–1989, 2002–2007), and of Research Letters in Physical Chemistry (from 2007). He is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Journal of the Argentine Chemical Society and was an Associate Editor of the Brazilian Journal of Physics for 10 years. His scientific interests lie in Many Bodies Theory, in Computer Simulations and Molecular Modeling, specially Solvent Effects in Spectroscopy and the Reactivity of Molecular Liquids. This short communication is a brief account of his contribution to this latter field, and as such it is necessarily limited in scope and somewhat arbitrary in the choice of the articles here discussed. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
