The Early Years of Quantum Monte Carlo (2): Finite Temperature Simulations

8 Mar 2021  ·  Michel Mareschal ·

In this article we present the second part of our historical survey on quantum Monte Carlo methods. IWe focus on the simulations performed at a finite temperature and based on the path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics... We introduce the method and insist on the central role played by the description of the transition to superfluidity for Helium 4. read more
