Layered material α−RuCl3 has caught wide attention due to its possible realization of Kitaev’s spin liquid and its electronic structure that involves the interplay of electron-electron correlations

Assessing the accuracy of compound formation energies with quantum Monte Carlo

Accurately predicting the formation energy of a compound, which describes its thermodynamic stability, is a key challenge in materials physics. Here, we employ many-body quantum Monte Carlo (QMC)

Spin-orbit interactions in electronic structure quantum Monte Carlo methods

We develop generalization of the fixed-phase diffusion Monte Carlo method for Hamiltonians which explicitly depend on particle spins such as for spin-orbit interactions. The method is formulated in

Quantum Monte Carlo with variable spins.

A proof for an upper-bound property for complex nonlocal operators, which allows for the implementation of T-moves to ensure the variational property of fixed-phase spin-orbit diffusion Monte Carlo is presented.

Wave functions for quantum Monte Carlo calculations in solids: Orbitals from density functional theory with hybrid exchange-correlation functionals

We investigate how the fixed-node diffusion Monte Carlo energy of solids depends on single-particle orbitals used in Slater--Jastrow wave functions. We demonstrate that the dependence can be

Ab initio relativistic effective potentials with spin–orbit operators. IV. Cs through Rn

A refined version of the ‘‘shape consistent’’ effective potential procedure of Christiansen, Lee, and Pitzer was used to compute averaged relativistic effective potentials (AREP) and spin‐orbit

Energy-consistent pseudopotentials for quantum Monte Carlo calculations.

The authors present scalar-relativistic energy-consistent Hartree-Fock pseudopotentials for the main-group elements that are suitable for quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) calculations and demonstrate their transferability through extensive benchmark calculations of atomic excitation spectra as well as molecular properties.

Quantum Monte Carlo with variable spins: Fixed-phase and fixed-node approximations.

The fixed-phase approach opens new possibilities for more general trial wave functions with further opportunities for increasing accuracy in practical calculations, and some of these properties on calculations of selected first-row systems that recover the fixed-node results with quantitatively similar levels of the corresponding biases.

Quantum Monte Carlo simulations of solids

This article describes the variational and fixed-node diffusion quantum Monte Carlo methods and how they may be used to calculate the properties of many-electron systems. These stochastic

Ab initio Quantum Monte Carlo Calculations of Spin Superexchange in Cuprates: The Benchmarking Case of Ca 2 CuO 3

In view of the continuous theoretical efforts aimed at an accurate microscopic description of the strongly correlated transition metal oxides and related materials, we show that with continuum

Fixed-node quantum Monte Carlo for molecules

The ground‐state energies of H2, LiH, Li2, and H2O are calculated by a fixed‐node quantum Monte Carlo method, which is presented in detail. For each molecule, relatively simple trial wave functions
