Numerical Methods for Molecular Quantum Dynamics

For the understanding of chemical reactions and the interactions with ultrashort laser pulses one has to treat molecules as quantum mechanical objects. The challenge with this very accurate theory is the curse of dimensionality which comes along with the concept of the wave function. The goal of this project is to develop methods for treating larger molecular systems in quantum dynamical calculations. Two approaches are in the focus of this project - systematic reduction of dimensions and the introduction of semi-classical approximations. Moreover these methods are applied to current problems in physics and chemistry together with groups form these research areas.
