- Quantum dynamics in liquid solutions and other anharmonic many-body systems: When do we need it, and why is it so difficult in practice.
- Reduction schemes in quantum nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics: Equilibrium averages from PIMD and PIMC; Bloch-Redfield and higher order master equations; Linear and nonlinear response; The generalized master equation and influence functional formalism.
- Real-time vs. Imaginary time path integral approaches: CMD vs. LSC (linearized semiclassical) approximations.
- Quantum mechanical rate constants for one-electronic-surface (adiabatic) systems: Reaction rate constants and vibrational relaxation rate constants.
- A general relationship between the CMD and LSC approximations.
