Non-perturbative Quantum Propagators in Bounded Spaces
We outline a new approach to calculating the quantum mechanical propagator in the presence of geometrically non-trivial Dirichlet boundary conditions based upon a generalisation of an integral
Worldline formalism for a confined scalar field
Abstract The worldline formalism is a useful scheme in quantum field theory which has also become a powerful tool for numerical computations. The key ingredient in this formalism is the first
Propagator from nonperturbative worldline dynamics
We use the worldline representation for correlation functions together with numerical path integral methods to extract nonperturbative information about the propagator to all orders in the coupling
Worldline Path Integrals for Gauge Fields and Quantum Computing
We study different aspects the worldline path integrals with gauge fields using quantum computing. We use the Variational Quantum Eigensolver (VQE) and Evolution of Hamiltonian (EOH) quantum
New Techniques for Worldline Integration
The worldline formalism provides an alternative to Feynman diagrams in the construction of amplitudes and effective actions that shares some of the superior properties of the organization of
A Monte Carlo approach to the worldline formalism in curved space
We present a numerical method to evaluate worldline (WL) path integrals defined on a curved Euclidean space, sampled with Monte Carlo (MC) techniques. In particular, we adopt an algorithm known as

Loops and loop clouds: A Numerical approach to the worldline formalism in QED
A numerical technique for calculating effective actions of electromagnetic backgrounds is proposed, which is based on the string-inspired worldline formalism. As examples, we consider scalar
Numerical solver of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation with Coulomb singularities
TLDR
This paper addresses a very fundamental and important problem in the numerical analysis of atomic and molecular systems: How to discretize Hamiltonians with divergent potential terms, such as Coulomb singularities by using the known asymptotic form of the wave function near the singularity instead of the (nonexistent) Taylor series.

Mathematical Formulation of the Quantum Theory of Electromagnetic Interaction
The validity of the rules given in previous papers for the solution of problems in quantum electrodynamics is established. Starting with Fermi's formulation of the field as a set of harmonic
Development of a pure diffusion quantum Monte Carlo method using a full generalized Feynman–Kac formula. I. Formalism
This paper presents systematic developments in the previously initiated line of research concerning a quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) method based on the use of a pure diffusion process corresponding to
Development of a pure diffusion quantum Monte Carlo method using a full generalized Feynman–Kac formula. II. Applications to simple systems
We have described in part I of this work the theoretical basis of a quantum Monte Carlo method based on the use of a pure diffusion process and of the so‐called full generalized Feynman–Kac (FGFK)
Quantum effective actions from nonperturbative worldline dynamics
We demonstrate the feasibility of a nonperturbative analysis of quantum field theory in the worldline formalism with the help of an efficient numerical algorithm. In particular, we compute the
Constructing phase space distributions with internal symmetries
We discuss an ab initio world-line approach to constructing phase space distributions in systems with internal symmetries. Starting from the Schwinger-Keldysh real time path integral in quantum field
