The Dynamics of Nuclear Motion

In this section we will discuss the dynamics of nuclear motion. We will start with a general discussion where we treat the nuclear motion using quantum dynamics (i.e. the time dependent Schrödinger equation). The basis we will use is the moving Gaussian wavepackets. When the width of these wavepackets is made sufficiently small, one obtains classical dynamics with trajectories.
