Ground state of the electron gas by a stochastic method

D. M. Ceperley, B. J. Alder

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An exact stochastic simulation of the Schroedinger equation for charged bosons and fermions has been used to calculate the correlation energies, to locate the transitions to their respective crystal phases at zero temperature within 10%, and to establish the stability at intermediate densities of a ferromagnetic fluid of electrons.
