Abstract

This paper discusses wave packet propagation and some recent three-dimensional applications to unimolecular dissociation. Emphasis is placed on direct generation of solutions to the time-dependent Schroedinger equation (ħ = 1),
$$\frac{{\partial l\psi \left( t \right) > }}{{\partial t}} = - iHl\psi \left( t \right) >$$
(1)
, and on extracting information out of such wave packets.
