We develop a nondirect product discrete variable representation (npDVR) for treating quantum dynamical problems which involve nonseparable angular variables. The npDVR basis is constructed on spherical functions orthogonalized on the grids of the Lebedev or Popov 2D quadratures for the unit sphere instead of the direct product of 1D quadrature rules. We compare our computational scheme with the old one that used the product of 1D Gaussian quadratures in terms of their convergence and efficiency…

Using nonproduct quadrature grids to solve the vibrational Schrödinger equation in 12D.
This paper proposes a new quadrature scheme for computing vibrational spectra and applies it, using a Lanczos algorithm, to CH(3)CN and demonstrates that it is possible to exploit the structure of the grid to efficiently evaluate the matrix-vector products required to use the Lanczos algorithms.

This work constructs near-optimal quadratures for the sphere that are invariant under the icosahedral rotation group and discretizes the reproducing kernel on a rotationally invariant subspace to construct an analogue of Lagrange interpolation on the sphere, providing a much better localization than spherical harmonic expansions.
