This paper gives an overview of the theory and some selected applications of the Multi-Configuration Time-Dependent Hartree-Fock (MCTDHF) method. This method can be seen as an explicitly time-dependent version of the Complete Active Space Self-Consistent Field (CASSCF) method of standard quantum chemistry. Strengths and shortcomings are discussed, and some comparisons with other methods of correlated electron dynamics are given.
Founded in 1887, the Zeitschrift für Physikalische Chemie covers the main developments in physical chemistry, placing with an emphasis on experimental research. It represents a combination ofdiscusses reaction kinetics and spectroscopy, surface research and electrochemistry, thermodynamics and the structure analysis of matter in its various conditions, among other topics.
