Nature of problem:
Determination of dynamic properties (reaction probabilities and cross sections) for ABC + D → AB + CD four-atom reactions

Solution method:
Propagation of the real part of a wavepacket under the action of a modified Hamiltonian on a grid using several techniques such as dispersion fitted finite difference and potential optimized DVR

Use of the helicity decoupling or centrifugal sudden approximation, which neglects the Coriolis coupling terms

Running time:
Hours to days, depending on the problem under study and computational resources. The test example takes between 15 and 30 hours depending on the environment used. The example is made up of several programs and can therefore be split into shorter time periods.
