Linearization methods start from a path integral representation of the forward and backward propagators in expressions for time correlation function, and combine them to describe the overall time evolution of the system in terms of a set of classical trajectories whose initial conditions are sampled from a quantity related to the Wigner transform of the quantum density operator. The linearized expression for a correlation function provides a powerful tool for describing systems in the condensed phase. The rapid decay of [Pg.557]
