1. Introduduction to quantum molecular dynamics. Wavepacket for the description of nuclear motions. Adiabatic separation of electronic and nuclear motions. Initial quantum state of a system.

2. Numerically exact integration of the time-dependent Schrodinger equation – second order differences, Cebyshev polynomials, use of Fast Fourier Transform.

3. Approximate methods for many-particle systems – time-dependent self-consistent field approximation, configuration interaction, semiclassical Gaussian methods, classical separable potentials.

4. Non-adiabatic dynamics and evaluation of non-adiabatic couplings.
