Energy level crossings in molecular dynamics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Energy level crossings are the landmarks that separate classical from quantum mechanical modeling of molecular systems. They induce non-adiabatic transitions between the otherwise adiabatically decoupled electronic level spaces. This review covers results on the analysis of propagation through level crossings of codimension two, a mathematical justification of surface hopping algorithms, and a spectral study of a linear isotropic system.
