Combining Spatial Motion and Spin



In this chapter we put together all the techniques studied so far: internal-spin degrees of freedom (Chap. 3) and spatial (motional) degrees of freedom (Chap. 4) are combined with the tensor-product formalism (Chap. 2). We arrive at a complete numerical description of interacting spin-ful particles moving through space. To showcase these powerful tools, we study Rashba coupling as well as the Jaynes–Cummings model.
