Abstract

Theoretical methods to describe the nuclear dynamics on intersecting multidimensional potential energy surfaces are reviewed. It is pointed out that conical intersections generally cause an ultrafast electronic population decay on a femtosecond time scale. The spectroscopy and the time-dependent dynamics of the strongly interacting \( {\tilde{B}^{2}}{E_{{2g}}} \) and C2A2u states of C6H6 + are considered to illustrate the general ideas.
