We have applied the fast-Fourier-transform (FFT) method for propagating the solution of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for a reactive atom-diatom collision in hyperspherical coordinates. In the present paper the dimensionality of the quantum subspace is reduced to two by introducing a semiclassical approximation, but extension to three or four dimensions is straightforward.
