The name of our quantity refers to what's good defined through the next quota­ tions:"Godcreated guy in his personal image"l and "Man creates God in his personal image."2 Our method of symmetry is subjective, and the time period "personal" symmetry displays this method in our dialogue of chosen medical occasions. now we have selected six icons to represent six components: Kepler for modeling, Fuller for brand spanking new molecules, Pauling for helical constructions, Kitaigorodskii for packing, Bernal for quasicrystals, and Curie for dissymmetry. For the prior 3 many years now we have been considering studying, considering, talking, and writing approximately symmetry. This involvement has augmented our crucial actions in molecular constitution study. Our curiosity in symmetry had begun with an easy fascination and has developed right into a hugely charged own subject for us. at first of this quantity, we had had numerous authored and edited symmetry comparable books in the back of three us. We owe a debt of gratitude to the varied humans whose interviews are quoted four during this quantity. We greatly relish the type and gracious cooperation of Edgar J. Applewhite (Washington, DC), Lawrence S. Bartell (University of Michigan), R.
