Variational Monte Carlo method for the Baeriswyl wavefunction: application to the one-dimensional bosonic Hubbard model

26 May 2016  ·  Hetényi B., Tanatar B., Martelo L. M. ·

A variational Monte Carlo method for bosonic lattice models is introduced. The method is based on the Baeriswyl projected wavefunction... The Baeriswyl wavefunction consists of a kinetic energy based projection applied to the wavefunction at infinite interaction, and is related to the shadow wavefunction already used in the study of continuous models of bosons. The wavefunction at infinite interaction, and the projector, are represented in coordinate space, leading to an expression for expectation values which can be evaluated via Monte Carlo sampling. We calculate the phase diagram and other properties of the bosonic Hubbard model. The calculated phase diagram is in excellent agreement with known quantum Monte Carlo results. We also analyze correlation functions. read more
