Optimization of Many-Body Wave Function
An overview on recent technical aspects of ab-initio electronic structure calculations using Quantum Monte Carlo is given in this article. In order to treat realistic, inhomogeneous, and larger systems within the practical calculational cost, several important techniques have been developed for the method. The article explains variety of many-body wavefunction form and the optimization schemes applied to the recent works mainly on extended periodic systems. Selected data are given to show how the optimization works to improve ground state energy.
