Overview

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.
