Quantum Monte Carlo Methods in Physics and Chemistry / Edition 1by M.P. Nightingale, C. J. Umrigar
Pub. Date: 12/28/1998
Publisher: Springer Netherlands
This book contains lectures on the basic theory and applications of quantum Monte Carlo methods, with contributions written by authorities in the field. Although tutorial in nature, it includes current developments. Both continuum systems and lattice models are covered. The applications include atomic, molecular, and solid state physics, statistical and low-temperature physics, and nuclear structure. Suitable for Ph.D. students and beyond.
