Abstract

The quantum domain behavior of classical nonintegrable systems is well-understood by the implementation of quantum fluid dynamics and quantum theory of motion. These approaches properly explain the quantum analogs of the classical Kolmogorov–Arnold–Moser type transitions from regular to chaotic domain in different anharmonic oscillators. Field-induced tunneling and chaotic ionization in Rydberg atoms are also analyzed with the help of these theories. Quantum fluid density functional theory may be used to understand different time-dependent processes like ion-atom/molecule collisions, atom-field interactions, and so forth. Regioselectivity as well as confined atomic/molecular systems and their reactivity dynamics have also been explained. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
