A new hybrid method is presented in which modified Shepard interpolation of a potential energy surface is combined with time-dependent quantum dynamics calculations. The propagation of a wave packet composed of fixed-width Gaussian functions allows a one-to-one mapping between the quantum dynamics results and a small number of quantum trajectories, allowing electronic structure theory calculations to be performed preferentially in dynamically-important regions. The method is designed for...[Show more]
