What it takes to catch a wave packet

Presented by: 
Caroline Lasser
Wednesday 13th November 2019 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 2
Wave packets describe the quantum vibrations of a molecule. They are highly oscillatory,
highly localized and move in high dimensional configuration spaces. The talk addresses
three meshless numerical methods for catching them: single Gaussian beams,
superpositions of them, and the so-called linearized initial value representation.
