Path-integral computation of the low-temperature properties of liquid He4

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Discretized path-integral computations of the energy and radial distribution function of He4 in good accord with experiment are presented for temperatures down to 1 K at saturated vapor pressure. Results for the single-particle density matrix, momentum distribution, and condensate fraction agree at the lowest temperature with previous ground-state calculations.
