Abstract / Bemerkung
The quantum transition state concept provides an intuitive and numerically efficient framework for the description of quantum state-resolved reactive scattering and thermal reaction processes. Combining multiconfigurational time-dependent Hartree wave packet dynamics calculations with a flux correlation function based analysis, rigorous full-dimensional calculations of initial state-selected and state-to-state reaction probabilities for six atom reactions are feasible. In these calculations, a set of wave packets is generated in the transition state region, propagated into the asymptotic area, and analyzed. In the present work, an alternative approach which employs counter-propagating sets of wave packets is introduced. Outgoing wave packets started in the transition state region are matched with incoming wave packets generated in the reactant (or product) asymptotic area. Studying the H + CH4 H2 + CH3 reaction as a prototypical example, one finds that the incoming wave packets can be propagated closely up to the transition state region with minor numerical effort. Employing cross correlation functions of incoming and outgoing wavefunctions, the propagation times required for the outgoing wave packet and thus the numerical costs of the entire calculation can be reduced significantly. Detailed full-dimensional calculations studying initial state-selected reaction probabilities for the H + CH4 H2 + CH3 reaction are presented to illustrate the new approach. It is found that converged results can be obtained using shorter propagation times of the outgoing wave packets and less single-particle functions.
