The decoherence effects were introduced into the semiclassical Ehrenfest self-consistent potential method using the natural decay of mixing (NDM) method. The NDM method involves only a single variable that serves as both the weight of an electronic state and its electronic population. The method is used in the fields of quantum measurement and hybrid quantum/classical algorithms for the dynamics of complex systems.
