Title

Quantum and Stochastic Aspects of Low-Temperature Trapping and Reaction Dynamics

Abstract

We discuss theoretical work on motion-limited trapping kinetics at very low temperatures where theories based upon strictly diffusive models break down due to quantum mechanical effects. In addition, we present numerical results which confirm earlier asymptotic predictions regarding the survival probability for one-dimensional chains, and discuss the important role fluctuations and selfaveraging (or the lack thereof) play in the analysis of finite systems.
