We present Path Integral Monte Carlo C code for calculation of quantum mechanical transition amplitudes for 1D models. The SPEEDUP C code is based on the use of higher-order short-time effectiveactions and implemented to the maximal order p=18 in the time of propagation (Monte Carlo time step), which substantially improves the convergence of discretized amplitudes to their exact continuum values. Symbolic derivation of higher-order effective actions is implemented in SPEEDUP Mathematica codes…

Geometric resonances in Bose–Einstein condensates with two- and three-body interactions

We investigate geometric resonances in Bose–Einstein condensates by solving the underlying time-dependent Gross–Pitaevskii equation for systems with two- and three-body interactions in an axially

Bose-Einstein condensation: Twenty years after

The aim of this introductory article is two-fold. First, we aim to offer a general introduction to the theme of Bose-Einstein condensates, and briefly discuss the evolution of a number of relevant

Random networks of carbon nanotubes optimized for transistor mass-production: searching for ultimate performance

Random networks of as-grown single-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) contain both metallic (m-CNTs) and semiconducting (s-CNTs) nanotubes in an approximate ratio of 1:2, which leads to a trade-off

Properties of quantum systems via diagonalization of transition amplitudes. II. Systematic improvements of short-time propagation.

This paper applies recently introduced effective action approach for obtaining short-time expansion of the propagator up to very high orders to calculate matrix elements of space-discretized evolution operator and allows us to numerically obtain large numbers of accurate energy eigenvalues and eigenstates using numerical diagonalization.

Properties of quantum systems via diagonalization of transition amplitudes. I. Discretization effects.

It is shown that the method based on the diagonalization of the short-time evolution operators leads to substantially smaller discretization errors, vanishing exponentially with 1/Delta(2), which is particularly well suited for numerical studies of few-body quantum systems.

Systematic speedup of path integrals of a generic N-fold discretized theory

We present and discuss a detailed derivation of an analytical method that systematically improves the convergence of path integrals of a generic N-fold discretized theory. We develop an explicit

Recursive Schrödinger equation approach to faster converging path integrals.

By recursively solving the underlying Schrödinger equation, this work sets up an efficient systematic approach for deriving analytic expressions for discretized effective actions that can be used to substantially speed up numerical Monte Carlo calculations of path integrals.

Discretized path integral method and properties of a quantum system

Using the discretized path integral formalism we develop a numerically convenient and accurate method for evaluating the finite time propagator (and density matrix) of a given system. The

High order Chin actions in path integral Monte Carlo.

It is shown that the time step error dependence achieved is best fitted with a sixth order law, and the computational effort per bead is increased but the total number of beads is greatly reduced and the efficiency improvement with respect to the primitive approximation is approximately a factor of 10.
