# Jianfeng Lu : Surface hopping: Mystery and opportunities for mathematicians

Surface hopping is a very popular approach in theoretical chemistry for mixed quantum-classical dynamics. Yes, the above sentence looks scary. Let us start over again ... We will examine from a mathematical point of view how stochastic trajectories can be used to approximate solutions to a Schrodinger equation (which is different from what Feynman did). Besides some applications in chemistry, this is a nice topic since it combines ideas from asymptotic analysis, applied probability, and applied harmonic analysis. The only background assumed in this talk is "separation of variables" (and of course some PDEs where separation of variables is applied to).
