The corresponding article on WP is 100% mine. I consider this to be a good article, because, quite coincidentally, a prominent professor of theoretical chemistry told me that WP has many good articles. As an example he quoted this article, which he had used—as he told me—as a basis for a graduate seminar. So I feel bad about the present status of 4; status 1 or 0, would be more appropriate. --Paul Wormer 10:09, 26 October 2007 (CDT)
