 The main scientific achievements of Professor Haruo
 Hosoya are
 presented below.
 Pioneer of mathematical chemistry: Establishment of
 new mathematical
 concepts, methodologies and proof techniques for
 giving mathematical
 meaning and interpretation to many important empirical
 rules in chemistry.
 * Introduction of topological Index, Z (1971)
 (Godfather of topological index)
 characterization, classification, identification of
 correlation of Z index with thermodynamic properties
 (bp, entropy, etc.)
 graph-theoretical molecular orbital theory, bond
 order, aromaticity, etc.
 QSPR study of thermodynamic properties of alkanes
 * Introduction of counting polynomials into chemical

 polynomial (1977), Wheland polynomial (1979),
 rotational polynomial (1988)
   operator technique for obtaining the recursion
 formulas (1983)
 * Graph-theoretical analysis of Hueckel molecular
 orbital theory
 extended Hueckel rule (1975), benzene character
 (1980), topological
 bond order (1976)
 * Quantum-chemical interpretation of oxidation number
 and its extension
 to organic molecules (1982) electron number analysis
 around the component
 atoms of molecules using ab initio MO wavefunction
 * Mathematical foundation of organic electron theory
 (Robinson and
 Ingold) (1999) proof of the diagramamatic recipe of
 organic electron theory
 discovery of abnormal tunneling electron transfer in
 large polycyclic
 aromatic hydrocarbons (2001)
 * Derivation of the closed formula giving the
 degeneracy of the angular
 parts of atomic wavefunction of n-dimensional hydrogen
 atom (1999)
 * Damping factor for rapid convergence of alternating
 series in the
 calculation of Madelung constants (1982)
 Haruo Hosoya was born in 1936, graduated from the
 University of
 Tokyo in 1959, obtained the D.Sc. Degree (equivalent
 to the Ph.D. degree in
 the USA) from the same university in 1964. In 1969 He
 was appointed
 Associate Professor of Ochanimizu University (Tokyo)
 and in 1984 promoted to
 (Full) Professor there. During 1990-1992 he served as
 Dean of the Faculty of
 Science (to which his chemistry department belongs).
 In 2002 he retired
 > from Ochamimizu University.

 Only original papers are considered for publication in
 Internet Electronic Journal of Molecular Design.
 Submission of an article is understood to imply that
 it has
 not previously been published in any language, that it
 not considered for publication elsewhere, and that if
 accepted for publication it will not be published
 Organization of Manuscript
 The entire manuscript, including mathematical
 chemical structures, tables, and figures must be
 in electronic form and submitted as Word for Windows
 files. Use only fonts that come with Windows software.
 For the text use Times New Roman size 12. For all
 characters (e.g., Greek characters) use the font
 Use carriage returns only to end headings and
 not to break lines of text. Automatic hyphenation
 be turned off. Do not insert spaces before
 Verify the correct spelling for the final version with
 Spelling and Grammar function of Word.
 Mathematical Equations
 All mathematical equations must be prepared with the
 equation editor from Word and placed in the proper
 The equations are labeled in the order in which they
 appear in the text with Arabic numbers in parentheses
 aligned to the left margin. In writing the equations
 use the
 following rules: vectors and matrices with bold,
 such as log, sin, cos normal, and all other
 symbols with italic.
 Each table is numbered with Arabic numbers and must
 have a caption that briefly explains the contents of
 table. Column headings should be brief and must
 indicate units.
 Explanations can be given in footnotes labeled with a,
 as italic superscripts.
 Figures are numbered consecutively with Arabic
 Each figure must be referred to in the text and must
 have a
 caption that briefly explains the contents of the
