By means of a quadratic diffusion Monte Carlo method we have performed a comparative analysis between the Aziz potential and a revised version of it. The results demonstrate that the revised version produces a better description of the equation of state for liquid [sup 4]He. In spite of the improvement in the description of derivative magnitudes of the energy, as the pressure or the compressibility, the energy per particle which comes from this revised potential is lower than the experimental… 
Analysis of the contributions of three-body potentials in the equation of state of 4He
TLDR
The results show how the three-body contributions affect the ground-state energy, the equilibrium, melting and freezing densities, and the triple-dipole dispersion and exchange energies.
Diffusion Monte Carlo for excited states: Application to liquid helium
The extension of ab initio Monte Carlo methods to the study of excited states is a challenging problem at the forefront of present research in the field of computational techniques applied to the
Quantum Monte Carlo simulation of a two-dimensional Bose gas
The equation of state of a homogeneous two-dimensional Bose gas is calculated using quantum Monte Carlo methods. The low-density universal behavior is investigated using different interatomic model
NEW PERSPECTIVES IN THE APPLICATION OF THE DIFFUSION MONTE CARLO METHOD TO THE STUDY OF LIQUID 3He
With the standard techniques to deal with the sign problem in a diffusion Monte Carlo (DMC) calculation, i.e., fixed node (FN) and released node (RN), we have re-explored the application of DMC to
Quadratic diffusion Monte Carlo and pure estimators for atoms
The implementation and reliability of a quadratic diffusion Monte Carlo method for the study of ground-state properties of atoms are discussed. We show in the simple yet nontrivial calculation of the
Thermal Effects on the Microscopic Properties of 4He Drops
Abstract We present path integral Monte Carlo results of small 4He drops at very low temperatures around the transition temperature to the normal phase. The results obtained are compared with the
QUANTUM MONTE CARLO STUDY OF OVERPRESSURIZED LIQUID 4He AT ZERO TEMPERATURE
We present a diffusion Monte Carlo simulation of metastable superfluid 4He at zero temperature and pressures beyond freezing (~ 25 bar) up to 275 bar. The equation of state of liquid 4He is extended
Ground-state properties and superfluidity of two- and quasi-two-dimensional solid 4He.
TLDR
By allowing the atoms to move locally in the direction perpendicular to the plane where they are confined to zero-point oscillations (quasi-2D crystal), the emergence of a finite superfluid density that coexists with the periodicity of the system is observed.
Quantum Monte Carlo study of quasi-one-dimensional Bose gases
We study the behaviour of quasi-one-dimensional (quasi-1D) Bose gases by Monte Carlo techniques, i.e. by the variational Monte Carlo, the diffusion Monte Carlo and the fixed-node diffusion Monte
Liquid4He: Modified LOCV ground-state energy calculations
The ground-state energetics of liquid4He is studied in a constrained variational approach, where the significance of neglecting terms beyond second order in the cluster expansion is estimated in a
