Applications of Lie systems in quantum mechanics and control theory

José F. Cariñena, Arturo Ramos (2003)

Banach Center Publications

Some simple examples from quantum physics and control theory are used to illustrate the application of the theory of Lie systems. We will show, in particular, that for certain physical models both of the corresponding classical and quantum problems can be treated in a similar way, may be up to the replacement of the Lie group involved by a central extension of it. The geometric techniques developed for dealing with Lie systems are also used in problems of control theory. Specifically, we will study...

The time-dependent Born-Oppenheimer approximation

Gianluca Panati, Herbert Spohn, Stefan Teufel (2007)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We explain why the conventional argument for deriving the time-dependent Born-Oppenheimer approximation is incomplete and review recent mathematical results, which clarify the situation and at the same time provide a systematic scheme for higher order corrections. We also present a new elementary derivation of the correct second-order time-dependent Born-Oppenheimer approximation and discuss as applications the dynamics near a conical intersection of potential surfaces and reactive scattering.
