Green's function Monte Carlo method with exact imaginary-time propagation

, : Green's function Monte Carlo method with exact imaginary-time propagation. Physical Review. E, Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics 71(1 Pt 2): 016707-016707

We present a general formulation of the Green's function Monte Carlo method in imaginary-time quantum Monte Carlo which employs exact propagators. This algorithm has no time-step errors and is obtained by minimal modifications of the time-independent Green's function Monte Carlo method. We describe how the method can be applied to the many-body Schrödinger equation, lattice Hamiltonians, and simple field theories. Our modification of the Green's function Monte Carlo algorithm is applied to the ground state of liquid 4He. We calculate the zero-temperature imaginary-time diffusion constant and relate that to the effective mass of a mass-four "impurity" atom in liquid 4He.

Bacteriophage T4 mutants defective in gene 56 (dCTPase) synthesize DNA where cytosine (Cyt) partial or completely replaces hydroxymethylcytosine (HmCyt). This Cy-t-DNA is degraded in vivo by T4 endonuclease II and IV, and by the exonuclease coded...
