We discuss some aspects of implementing the time-dependent
Hartree-Fock method in the case of nuclear physics. Topics discussed include
implementation of the time-stepping algorithm, considerations involving the effective
interaction, and the use (or not) of particular optional terms in the energy
density functional, and boundary conditions. Examples of application of the
technique to giant resonances and reactions are given, concentrating on issues to
do with numerical and conceptual interpretation.
