Please note, I am already retired and cannot take new Ph.D. students.

My main research topic is: MCTDH 'Multi-Configuration Time-Dependent Hartree'
MCTDH is a very efficient algorithm to solve the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for multidimensional dynamical systems (e.g. the ro-vibrational and dissociative motion of molecules).
See the MCTDH Homepage for further details.


There has been a "High dimensional quantum dynamics: challenges and opportunities" workshop in Birmingham, April 14-16, 2012, organized by Graham Worth. See:



On April 15th, 2009 there has appeared the book:
