Abstract

The TDSCF approximation is applied to dissociation of Ar3, which exhibits strong-coupling behavior (efficient internal energy transfer). The TDSCF results are in excellent agreement with those of exact classical dynamics. Combined with earlier findings for weak-coupling cases, this suggests validity of TDSCF for dissociation at all coupling strengths.
