About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic, we hope to provide a broad overview of current work in trajectory-based approaches to quantum dynamics. The Topic aims to span the field, from the fundamental interpretational aspect of trajectory-based formalisms as an alternative way of understanding quantum physics and its classical limit and gaining physical intuition and visualization of the dynamical evolution of physical systems to meeting practical challenges of many-dimensional quantum dynamics by exploiting the computational efficiency of classical trajectory methods generalized to the quantum realm.
We welcome researchers to contribute Original Research and Review papers for this Research Topic sharing the most recent ideas in the field of the trajectory descriptions of quantum mechanics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to：
• Quantum & Semiclassical trajectories methods
• Bohmian mechanics
• Wave-free quantum mechanics/many interacting worlds
• Lagrangian-based numerical methods (e.g., Dirac-Frenkel)
• Atomic and molecular physics
• Chemical dynamics
• High-resolution spectroscopy
• Noether’s theorem, symmetry, and conservation laws
• Quantum foundations
• Relativistic effects in electronic structure and dynamics
Keywords: quantum trajectories, pseudoprobability densities, quantum phase space, quantum dynamics, quantum phenomena
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
