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…

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.
