Abstract

The quantum Monte Carlo method for bosons of Kalos, Levesque, and Verlet was generalized to exactly simulate the ground state of many-fermion systems. Such simulations were carried out on the one component plasma with up to 250 electrons and determined the equation of state in three phases was determined: the normal (unpolarized) Fermi liquid, the polarized Fermi liquid and the Wigner crystal. Two phase transitions are seen: from the normal liquid to the polarized at r//s equals 75, and from the polarized liquid to the Wigner crystal at r//s equals 100 where r//s is the mean interparticle spacing in Bohr radii.
