Path integral monte carlo calculation of the deuterium hugoniot

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A finite size and time step study using a parallelized path integral Monte Carlo (PIMC) code was carried out to calculate the equilibrium properties of deuterium. Emphasis was on improving the fermion nodes. A slightly increased compressibility of 4.3±0.1 was found compared to the SESAME model.
