A boost to the Simulations guys. Were there previous simulation oriented Chem Nobels.

Only one I can recall is Kohn for DFT but he was a Physics Nobel I think.

I have heard that Warshel loves to argue, but I never met him myself.  Slightly off-topic but the award in Medicine or Physiology looks like a sensible one.
