The Schrödinger equation is central to quantum mechanics and a cornerstone for the description of many fascinating phenomena in AMO, chemical, condensed-matter, and nuclear physics. Quantum many-body dynamics attract an enormous amount of interest in physics, chemistry, and mathematics alike.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to amalgamate contributions from researchers actively working on solutions, applications, and theoretical methodologies for the time-dependent Schrödinger equation for few- and many-particle systems.
We thus solicit contributions including, though not restricted to:
- wavefunction-based methods such as configuration interaction, exact diagonalization, multiconfigurational time-dependent Hartree methods, or coupled cluster theory;
- exactly-solvable models;
- numerical methods;
- mathematically rigorous results;
- connections between mean-field and many-body descriptions.
We kindly invite you to contribute manuscripts about the theories, models, or methods themselves or, alternatively, their applications, e.g., to quantum correlations and fluctuations in ultracold atoms and Bose–Einstein condensates or correlated electron-dynamics triggered by light–matter interactions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
