    We propose to measure nonadiabaticity of molecular quantum dynamics rigorously with the quantum fidelity between the Born-Oppenheimer and fully nonadiabatic dynamics. It is shown that this measure of nonadiabaticity applies in situations where other criteria, such as the energy gap criterion or...

    The free-energy gap law in back electron transfer reactions is shown to be affected by encounter diffusion in photogenerated ion pairs. The ion separation quantum yield increases when initial separation of ions is large compared to the radius of the reaction layer and decreases in the opposite...

    We present a new formulation of the correlated electron-ion dynamics (CEID) scheme, which systematically improves Ehrenfest dynamics by including quantum fluctuations around the mean-field atomic trajectories. We show that the method can simulate models of nonadiabatic electronic transitions and...

    A model is developed to determine the rate of electron transfer between high n molecular Rydberg states and ions of the same species under zero kinetic energy pulsed field ionization (ZEKE-PFI) experimental conditions.

    A theoretical explanation of the recently observed non-Marcus free energy gap dependence of the charge recombination rate in contact ion pairs is presented. The electron transfer event is described as a nonadiabatic depopulation of the initially excited adiabatic state. This model explains the...

    The applicability of quantum molecular dynamics to the calculation of the equation of state of a dense plasma is limited at high temperature by computational cost. Orbital-free molecular dynamics, based on the Thomas-Fermi semiclassical approximation and possibly on a gradient correction, is the...
