Analyzes the quantum dynamics of a two-electronic state model system with a conical intersection involving two vibrational degrees of freedom, x and y. Diabatic surfaces displaced along x; Role of initial momentum and of the difference of the slopes at the conical intersection; Diabatic transition at the conical intersection accompanied by a massive flow of vibrational quanta.

    The three-dimensional hydrogen cyanide/isocyanide isomerization problem is taken as an example to present a general theory for computing the phase space structures which govern classical reaction dynamics in systems with an arbitrary (finite) number of degrees of freedom. The theory, which is...

    We propose a new adaptive sampling approach to determine free energy profiles with molecular dynamics simulations, which is called as “repository based adaptive umbrella sampling” (RBAUS). Its main idea is that a sampling repository is continuously updated based on the latest...

    The approach of defining quantum corrections on nuclear dynamics of molecular systems incorporated approximately into selected degrees of freedom, is described. The approach is based on the Madelung-de-Broglie-Bohm formulation of time-dependent quantum mechanics which represents a wavefunction...

    Alternative treatments of quantum and semiclassical theories for nonadiabatic dynamics are presented. These treatments require no derivative couplings and instead are based on overlap integrals between eigenstates corresponding to fast degrees of freedom, such as electronic states. Derived from...

    Quantum beats in nonlinear spectroscopy of molecular aggregates are often attributed to electronic phenomena of excitonic systems, while nuclear degrees of freedom are commonly included into models as overdamped oscillations of bath constituents responsible for dephasing. However, molecular...
