Hydrogen Bonding Models: Their Relevance to Molecular Modeling
In the last twenty years the words model and modeling have come into a somewhat acritical use to identify a number of different methods and concepts pertaining to both social and physical sciences. Even restricting our interest to the purely physical aspects, it is not always clear what may have in common things apparently so different as the water-circulation model of the Mediterranean see, the Ising model of phase transitions and critical states, the cell automata as computer models of the developing of life, the molecular modeling of drug-receptor interactions or DNA-protein recognition processes, and the modeling of inter and intramolecular hydrogen bonding interactions (the subject present chapter is actually devoted to).
