|Abstract:||We have carried out molecular dynamics simulations of non-adiabatic processes with the help of a newly formulated potentially exact quantum-classical approach derived from a method proposed earlier [J. Chem. Phys. 118 (2003) 5302]. In this method, time-dependent Schroedinger equation is solved by representing Psi on a moving Gauss-Hermite DVR grid, the motion of grid-centre being handled classically, but self consistently with the quantum evolution of the wavefunction. Electronic transitions are allowed anywhere in the configuration space among any number of coupled states. We have tested the method on three model problems proposed by J.C. Tully [J. Chem. Phys. 93 (1990) 1061]. These models are relevant to a wide range of gas-phase and condensed-phase phenomena occurring even at low energies. Excellent agreement of computed transition probabilities with corresponding quantum mechanical (DVR/FFT) results even in the deep quantum regime and its cost-efficiency (computational) are encouraging.
