The most general treatment of the time-dependent Schrodinger equation describing systems of nuclei and electrons leads to equations which involve contributions to nuclear momentum operator in addition to ℏ/i times the nuclear gradient operator. As an application to theory, a method to treat the nuclear dynamics under strong electromagnetic fields is presented. The proposed treatment includes the projection of the fully time-dependent states at time t on the adiabatic states at time t=0.
