The quantum Monte Carlo method : application to problems in statistical physics

Coker, David Frederick


The diffusion Monte Carlo method for performing quantum calculations on many body systems is extended and applied to a number of areas of chemical physics. An ab initio quantum Monte Carlo procedure for simulating wave functions with nodal surfaces is presented. Some few Fermion problems are treated using this technique. A method for using the ground state wave function obtained from a diffusion Monte Carlo calculation to determine the vibrational spectrum of a molecular cluster is...[Show more]
