Several descriptions will be considered, ranging from Ehrenfest expectation value dynamics to the phase-space picture of Bohm's quantum hydrodynamics. In the long term, the project aims to provide new insight into chemical physics models and possibly quantum chaos problems
Wyatt, Quantum Dynamics with Trajectories Introduction to Quantum Hydrodynamics, vol.
The momentum distribution is predicted to show narrowing due to particles reversing the direction of their motion during the collision and we are studying this many-body bounce by using quantum hydrodynamics based on Luttinger liquid model of the interacting gas.
