In existographies, Erich Muller (8- AE) (1963- ACM) (SPE:19|66AE) (SNE:9) (Thims 33:25) (CR:49) (LH:6) (TL:55) is a Venezuelan-born English chemical engineering and thermodynamicist, noted for 
Muller's 1998 thermodynamic potential model of social interaction.
In 1998, Muller, in his “Human Societies: a Curious Application of Thermodynamics”, defined humans to be analogous to molecules, employs potentials instead of forces, then quantified inter human molecular love and hate in terms of basic thermodynamic pair bonds, and lastly quantified social forces as a type of van der Waals dispersion force; as diagrammed adjacent.
In 2005, Libb Thims, while launching the Journal of Human Thermodynamics (JHT), used Muller's "Human Societies" as a prototype for all submitted articles, in theme, content, and writing style.
