Abstract

This paper deals with the problem of the role of quantum mechanics in the analysis of the Universe at a molecular scale. QM has permitted to set up a mathematical government among molecular populations. It is shown, in particular, how QM has replaced the vague chemical concept of bond by a more precise mathematical tool: this question is referred to the loge theory.
