Per-Olov Löwdin — Conqueror of Scientific, Educational and Rocky Mountains
I happened to be the first Japanese scientist to meet Per Löwdin on Japanese soil. In September 1953, an international conference on theoretical physics was held in Japan. Professor Kotani gave me the responsibility of meeting some foreign guests at the Tokyo airport. Thus on one hot summer day, I met Per as well as Professor Waller and Professor Mulliken at the airport. At that time, I did not realize that this was to be the beginning of a long and happy association with Per and his groups.
