Abstract



recrossings and approximate rates because it relies on a fixed dividing surface. We develop both per turbative and numerical methods for the computation of a timedependent recrossingfree dividing surface for a model anharmonic system in a solvated environment that interacts strongly with an oscil latory external field. We extend our previous work, which relied either on a harmonic approximation or on periodic force driving. We demonstrate that the reaction rate, expressed as the longtime flux of reactive trajectories, can be extracted directly from the stability exponents, namely, Lyapunov expo nents, of the moving dividing surface. Comparison to numerical results demonstrates the accuracy and robustness of this approach for the computation of optimal (recrossingfree) dividing surfaces and reaction rates in systems with Markovian solvation forces. The resulting reaction rates are in strong agreement with those determined from the longtime flux of reactive trajectories.Over the last years, a new geometrical perspective on transition state theory has been developed that provides a deeper insight on the reaction mechanisms of chemical systems. This new methodology is based on the identification of the invariant structures that organize the dynamics at the top of the energetic barrier that separates reactants and products. Moreover, it has allowed to solve, or at least circumvent, the recrossingfree problem in rate calculations. In this paper, we will discuss which kind of objects determine the reaction dynamics in the presence of dilute, dense and condensed phase baths.
