The applicability of a computer simulation technique for investigating photoinduced dynamics of polyatomic molecules, based on a combination of classical dynamics and a quantum surface hopping algorithm is discussed. The Wigner representation of a molecule's time-dependent density matrix is calculated and the corresponding approximation of the molecule's dynamics as a series of quantum jumps between the electronic states with classical movement on single electronic levels between jumps is presented. The effectiveness of this approach in computer simulations of a molecule's photodissociation dynamics in the presence of a strong laser field is shown and computer simulation results on IR photostimulated dissociation in HCl+ molecule are reported.
