Surface Hopping Kapral, Raymond


Fewest-switches surface hopping is one of the most widely used methods for describing nonadiabatic dynamics. It is simple but does suffer from some shortcomings, mainly due to the way decoherence is treated. The talk will discuss the approximations that must be made to the quantum-classical Liouville description of nonadiabatic dynamics in order to obtain fewest-switches surface hopping.
