Quantum Monte Carlo methods are powerful probabilistic approaches for computing quantum averages of a $N$-body quantum system described by a Schroedinger equation. There exist many variants of QMC known under various acronyms. The various approaches may be classified as follows:

  • T=O and T diff 0 QMC
  • Continuous or discrete configuration space
  • Quantum statistics: boltzamon, fermion, and boson.
