Does there exist a mathematical model of isomerism? (a model which is capable of predicting, for given circumstances, the re-arrangement that is going to occur, e.g. Demjanov, Wagner-Meerwein etc.).
The goal is to:
- understand how a geometrical structure of a molecule changes for isomers
- understand under what conditions certain geometrical structure of one molecule is transformed into a different geometrical structure of an isomer
- which geometrical isomer structures are impossible to exist
