I (P. Canepa) would like to thank Dr. Y. Noel (at Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France) for his inspiration. Dr. M. Alfredsson, must not be forgotten for having supported with grit my idea. Colleagues of Room 104 at the Physical Sciences department at University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.
In sequence come Prof. P. Ugliengo and his Group for their endless patience spotting errors and giving suggestions and Prof. R. Dovesi for having very well welcomed my idea. A special thank also goes to Prof. R. Hanson at the chemistry department of St. Olaf College (Minnesota, USA) and the Jmol crew.
