The following is a work-in-progress listing of students that, via mail, internet, email, forum, communication, and or video interaction, have studied directly under the hmolscience work of American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims: [1]


1.Photo needed 75Turnkey13
Turkish mechanical engineer
2009A third-year mechanical engineering student who, via Hmolpedia messaging, expressing desire to come to America to complete a MS in on a topic related to thermodynamic of human existence; was inspired by passages from Yunus Cengel and Michael Boles's thermodynamics textbook (see: Cengel-Boles human thermodynamics), one in particular shown below:

“The arguments presented here are exploratory in nature, and they are hoped to initiate some interesting discussion and research that may lead into better understanding of performance in various aspects of daily life. The second law may eventually be used to determine quantitatively the most effective way to improve the quality of life and performance in daily life, as it is presently used to improve the performance of engineering systems.”
Yunus Cengel and Michael Boles (2006), Thermodynamics [5]

to which Thims replied that he did not know of any yet extant programs in America, but that for the time being he should read Thims' 2007 Human Chemistry textbook, as it then contained most known publications written on entropy and human relations. [4]
2.Jeff Tuhtan (2013) 75Jeff Tuhtan
American ecohydraulic engineering
2010 Spent the greater part of 2010 to 2012 consulting with Thims, attracted to he subject by a reading of Thims' The Human Molecule (2008), via emersion in Hmolpedia threads and email exchanges, on his “fish as molecule” chemical thermodynamics based ecological thermodynamics PhD dissertation, entitled “A Modeling Approach for Alpine Rivers Impacted by Hydropeaking Including the Second Law Inequality” (2011), structured around a number of hmolscience thinkers; the opening paragraph of his finished dissertation is evidence to this mentorship influence:

“The human species is but one of many. Viewed from a sort of universal microscope, we appear as but a vast collection of molecules in motion. In our current state we are firmly attached to an Earthly substrate, feeding off the energy gradient of the Sun. The fate of our chemical species is undeniably tied to the affinities and energies of interaction required to maintain our evolving earth ecosystem. We live in a closed system. In order to understand the nature of things, we must learn more about both our reactions and our products.”
Jeff Tuhtan (2012), PhD “A Modeling Approach for Alpine Rivers Impacted by Hydropeaking Including the Second Law Inequality” (pg. 1); cited by Libb Thims, in his piston and cylinder section (Ѻ), of his 2013 NIU lecture. [6]

Tuhtan continues to be part of Hmolpedia consultation himself to newer students.
3. Simone Loreti 75Simone Loreti
Italian theoretical physicist
2012 After completed his master’s degree in theoretical physics, Loreti began probing around looking for somewhere where he can completed his PhD in sociophysics, socioeconomic physics, and or human thermodynamics; the following are a few queries, the latter to Libb Thims: [6]

“Dear Sirs, I am looking for a PhD in SocioPhysics (or at most Socio-Econo-Physics), and/or funds for it. Do you know something about it? Any advice is welcome.”
— Simon Loreti (2012), “Forum blog post”, EconoPhysics Forum, Apr 14

“In March 2011, I graduated with a master's degree in theoretical physics at the University of Bologna (Italy). I am strongly interested in sociophysics or in general in physics applied to human behavior: in my thesis I solved a sociological problem using statistical mechanics, and machine learning methods. I am looking for a PhD in socio-physics or human thermodynamics and/or funds for it. Do you know something about it? Any advice is welcome.”
— Simon Loreti (2012), “Email to Institute of Human Thermodynamics”, Apr 15

Thims gave him direction on where, outside of America, to look for such a department, being that the United States, presently, has no such teaching mechanism.
4.Kim Bondoc 75Kim Bondoc
Philippine chemist
2013Thims facilitated part of his doing part of MS in physical chemistry graduate coursework on hmolscience; specifically on Thims' 2010 chemical thermodynamics of hot, cold or ambient sex study, i.e. on social enthalpy theory. [2]
5.Photo needed 75Po Jen Shen
Taiwanese business management theorist
2014Did his MBA with a thesis on “A Thermodynamic Perspective on Innovation and Distributed Capitalism: a Conceptual Paper” largely based on Thims' 2013 “Econoengineering and Economic Behavior: Particle, Atom, Molecule, or Agent Models?” [10]
6.Behrouz SadeghiBehrouz Sadeghi
Iranian economist
2014 On 10 Nov 2014, emailed the following query to Libb Thims:

“I am Behruz Sadeghi Amroabadi, PhD Candidate (in last year) of economics at University of Isfahan, Iran and now as a visiting student in Towson University in USA. I have passed PhD comprehensive examination in my faculty successfully and have published several research papers about the environment, government, social capital, poverty, etc., in Iranian and international journals. The subject of my thesis is ‘Economic Entropy as a New Index of Cost in Economics.’ Now, I am searching for Post-Doc position and know you have some research in this regard. Do you or your faculty have any Position for Post Doctoral in related to entropy? I really interest in this subject and want to continue my knowledge for this important.”

Thims told Sadeghi that he was working to get an undergraduate and graduate department of “physicochemical humanities” established here in America, but was facing resistance, and in mean time suggesting that he might contact the Romanian school of physical socioeconomics, Yakovenko of the American school, as well as John Rutledge.
7.Ram Poudel 75Ram Poudel
Nepalese-American mechanical engineer
2015In Dec 2015 began consulting with Thims in respect to guidance on his social energetics and economic thermodynamics themed social field theory PhD; is the organizer of the BPE 2016. Poudel pinging ideas off Thims for cogentness, e.g. on 10 Feb 2016 sending Thims Puerto Rican child prodigy Luis Arroyo’s 2010 age 20 completed MS physics thesis “A Thermal Model of Economy”, Gibbs energy social models of Josip Stepanic, mention of Edwin Jaynes, etc.

Other individuals who have done graduate school work via hmolscience are found in the site member index; many, however, doing so anonymously. [3]

The following are a work-in-progress listing of known individual "authors" who have been influenced to a significant degree by the work of Thims:

Satch Ejike (2008) – relationship advise book based on hmolscience.
Mark Janes (2010-present) – articles, books, and philosophy guided by hmolscience.
David Bossens (2012-2013) – book based on hmolscience; working presently (2013) on MA in theoretical philosophy, using diffusion models and function defined by Norbert Wiener, in part using Hmolpedia and consultation of Thims and his work (e.g. Thims' 2012 “Thermodynamics ≠ Information Theory”, etc.). [7]
Inderjit Singh (2014-present) – Published a novel The Warrior (2015), online article “Knowledge is Power” (2015), and in 2016 in was working on an “Essay on Man”, and amid consultation with Thims considered his mindset adjusted as follows: (Ѻ)

“I believe my mind to be more along the [equation] lines of: Singh = Socrates (30%) + Tolkien (25%) + Goethe (25%) + Thims (20%) [Regarding] the constituents of [my literary writing] equation.”

Thims groupe (UPESW 2013)
A number of recent indirect students of the HCT teachings of Libb Thims (center): Constantin Bratianu (Thims’ right), Daniel Pele (Thims’ back right), Mircea Gligor (Thims’ back left), and seated in front left to right: Ion Siman and Gheorghe Savoiu, all noted members of the Romanian school of physical socioeconomics, at UPESW 2013; Bratianu and Gligor being two exceptions, being they each independently have developed their own unique human thermodynamic theories.
The following are professors Thims mentored in their habilitation:

● Gheorgeh Savoiu (2014) - Economics and Cross-disciplinarity: econophysics, sociophysics, and econothermodynamics. [9]

(add discussion)

If any one of the above has objection to being classified as a “student”, please note that this page was started, following the Kim Bondoc communication about permission to use Thims’ 2010 hot sex/cold sex study in his physical chemistry course, solely for the purposes of mental classification purposes, i.e. the number of people doing graduate school work via direct communication with Thims or via work citation was becoming too long to keep track of mentally, hence easier via wiki memory. [2] If some form of objection exists please contact Thims so to amend the situation.

The following are related quotes:

“In the near future, we as a society will be readily equipped to grant PhD's in human thermodynamics with the sole purpose to encourage research, investigation, and glide-path development for the betterment of humankind.”
— Libb Thims (2005), online Q&A forum posting [8]

“One day instead of (or in addition to) regular math, chemistry, physics, etc., kids in school will be learning something like one human molecule + another human molecule = ? ... it's just a crazy thought, but hey, we'll see or somebody will.”
— Natalia Roubanenko (2006), Russian-born American language studies scholar (see: dihumanide molecule; human reproduction reaction; zerotheism for kids); commentary after reviewing 100-page manuscript of Thims' Cessation Thermodynamics, Apr 29

“If people are using this site to do their PhD dissertations and getting away with that, their advisors should be shot.”
Peggy La Cerra (2011) American evolutionary psychologist; irate about Thims' review of her "depression energy" psychodynamic theory

Zerotheism for Kids (2015)
A video still of Thims, amid the 2015 "Zerotheism for Kids" lecture, one of near a dozen public lectures Thims has given (see: Thims lectures) since 2010, teaching six kids (see: Thims students) aged 6 to 11 the modern upgrade to the 5,000-year-old "god created the world in six days", Nile flood (Noah's flood), and Adam and Eve model of everything, with humans as evolved powered CHNOPS+20 chemicals, with a chemical thermodynamic morality (i.e. Goethean morality) system, moving in a big bang universe, amid a human chemical reaction model view of everything.
