This paper presents a new approach to propagating the density matrix based on a time stepping procedure arising from a Trotter factorization and combining the forward and backward incremental propagators. The sums over intermediate states of the discrete quantum subsystem are implemented by a Monte Carlo surface hopping-like procedure, while the integrals over the continuous variables are performed using a linearization in the difference between the forward and backward paths of these variables leading to classical-like equations of motion with forces determined by the quantum subsystem states.

Abstract

This paper presents a new approach to propagating the density matrix based on a time stepping procedure arising from a Trotter factorization and combining the forward and backward incremental propagators. The sums over intermediate states of the discrete quantum subsystem are implemented by a Monte Carlo surface hopping-like procedure, while the integrals over the continuous variables are performed using a linearization in the difference between the forward and backward paths of these variables leading to classical-like equations of motion with forces determined by the quantum subsystem states. The approach is tested on several models and numerical convergence is explored. (c) 2008 American Institute of Physics. [DOI: 10.1063/1.2976441]
