Applications and Case Studies in Nonadiabatic Chemistry

In this chapter we will illustrate some of the concepts and methodology discussed in previous chapters with some examples that are presented in depth. One of our objectives is to show that excited state chemistry does have some general mechanistic principles just like ground state chemistry. These principles are presented using the ideas of valence bond theory, the shapes of conical intersections, and the phase relationship between the wavefunction and the nuclear positions in the branching space near a conical intersection.
