Quantum Monte Carlo methods are powerful probabilistic approaches for computing quantum averages of a N-body quantum system described by a Schr&oum;dinger equation. There exist many variants of QMC known under various acronyms. We propose to classify the various approaches as follows:

- Zero-temperature (T=O) and finite-temperature QMC methods
- QMC defined in continuous or discrete (latticve) configuration space
- QMC for Boltzmanon, Fermion, or Boson particles.
