Interference of probabilities in dynamics
Abstract
A new class of dynamical systems with a preset type of interference of probabilities is introduced. It is obtained from the extension of the Madelung equation by replacing the quantum potential with a specially selected feedback from the Liouville equation. It has been proved that these systems are different from both Newtonian and quantum systems, but they can be useful for modeling spontaneous collective novelty phenomena when emerging outputs are qualitatively different from the weighted sum of individual inputs. Formation of language and fast decisionmaking process as potential applications of the probability interference is discussed.

Exact transition probabilities in a 6state Landau–Zener system with path interference
In this paper, we identify a nontrivial multistate Landau–Zener (LZ) model for which transition probabilities between any pair of diabatic states can be determined analytically and exactly. In the semiclassical picture, this model features the possibility of interference of different trajectories that connect the same initial and final states. Hence, transition probabilities are generally not described by the incoherent successive application of the LZ formula. Finally, we discuss reasons for integrability of this system and provide numerical tests of the suggested expression for the transition probability matrix.Cited by 10 
Reaction dynamics for O(/sup 3/P)+HD. V. Reduced dimensionality quantum and quasiclassical reaction probabilities and rate constants with an adiabatic incorporation of the bending motion
Reduced dimensionality exact quantum and quasiclassical reaction probabilities and rate constants are presented for the O(/sup 3/P)+HD(..nu.. = 0,1)..>..OH+D and OD+H reactions. The effective potential energy surface used is the ab initio collinear MODPOLCI surface with the ground state adiabatic bending energy added in, as in the previous paper in this series. The rate constants are compared with the recent experiments of Gordon et al. 
Comparative study of the reaction dynamics of several potential energy surfaces for O(/sup 3/P)+H/sub 2/. >. OH+H. II. Collinear exact quantum and quasiclassical reaction probabilities
Exact quantum and quasiclassical reaction probabilities for the collinear O(/sup 3/P)+H/sub 2/ reaction are presented for five potential energy surfaces. These surfaces include the diatomicsinmolecules surface of Whitlock, Muckerman, and Fisher, the LEPS surface of Johnson and Winter, the ab initio fitted surface of Schinke and Lester, the ab initio fitted surface of Schatz, Wagner, Walch, and Bowman, and a modification of this last surface newly reported here. On each surface, the quantum and quasiclassical probabilities are compared and interpreted. A vibrationally adiabatic analysis based on recent work by Pollak proves useful in interpreting the dynamic thresholds and quantum oscillationsmore »
