"One-Day Workshop": Alternative Methods for Quantum Dynamics

Standard time-dependent and time-independent computational approaches have seen tremendous success in their application to reactive and inelastic chemical processes. However, their utility is generally restricted to small numbers of atoms, low levels of internal excitation, and/or reduced spatial dimensionality. While advances in computational resources continue, the dynamical treatment of systems involving seven or so atoms is generally intractable without severe approximations for manifold reasons.
This one-day workshop brings together experts pursing other paradigms for chemical dynamics focused on three main themes: new algorithms and computing platforms (neural networks, machine learning, quantum simulation), alternative theoretical methodologies (quantum-semiclassical, kinetic theories), and nonstandard mechanisms and effects (roaming, geometric phase, external field control).
The following speakers are currently confirmed: Dmitri Babikov, N. Balakrishnan, Joel Bowman, Bob Forrey, Hua Guo, Roman Krems, David Neufeld, Phillip Stancil, and Timor Tscherbul.
The meeting will roughly run from 1:30pm Friday to 1:00pm Saturday, with a poster session Friday evening. Participation will be limited to 30-40 attendees. Further details will become available soon. Inquires can be addressed to Phillip Stancil ([log in to unmask]).
