This leads to so-called ‘diabatic’ bases; the freedom to choose the representation is very important in practical applications to spectroscopy and atomic/molecular collisions [50, 51]. 12 We remind ourselves again from Sect. 17) with the non-zero Poisson-bracket {xi , pj } = δij . 12 The reader may find it helpful to refer to the Appendix which summarizes some mathematical notions that are needed here, and illustrates them in a simple model of coupled oscillators with two degrees of freedom. 1 The Potential Energy Surface in Molecular Quantum Mechanics 17 Let us denote the classical dynamical variables for the electrons collectively as x, p, and those for the nuclei by X, P and denote the classical Hamiltonian by H(x, p, X, P).

Chapter 2 A Comment on the Question of Degeneracies in Quantum Mechanics Michal Svrˇcek Abstract The problem of degeneracies, descending from the Born-Oppenheimer (B-O) approximation serves as a “comeback backdoor” of the principle of complementarity, but on a much more subtle level. Quantum mechanics incorporates both mechanical and field theory features, which results in the well-known particlewave aspects of complementarity.

40) In particular, using the electronic ground state ϕ0 , the Rayleigh-Ritz quotient leads to an upper bound to the ground state energy E0 of Hˆ . e. it does not prove the existence of a bound-state below the continuum. This calculation amounts to the diagonalization of the projection of ˆ on the one-dimensional subspace spanned by Ψ0 . In principle the subspace may H be enlarged, and the accuracy thereby improved, by using the subspace spanned by a set of trial functions (Ψ0 , Ψ1 , . . 37). Such non-adiabatic calculations which make no use of a Potential Energy Surface are restricted to very small molecules.
