Qualitative behavior of splitting methods for the linear Schrödinger equation in molecular dynamics
INRIA, Campus de Beaulieu, 35042 Rennes Cedex, France;
We present a normal form theorem for the propagator of a splitting method applied to a linear Schrödinger equation. This result allows us to derive conservation properties for the numerical solutions provided by the method. As a conclusion, we show numerical experiments illustrating our results.
