    We have used a path integral Monte Carlo technique to simulate positronium (Ps) in a cavity. The primitive propagator is used, with a pair of interacting chains representing the positron and electron. We calculate the energy and radial distribution function for Ps enclosed in a hard, spherical...

    We report measurements of the in-plane (transverse) structure function, S||(k), of the liquid–vapor interface of Hg at 298 K, obtained using the method of grazing incidence x-ray diffraction. Our results show that: (i) The transverse structure function of the liquid–vapor interface...

    The path-integral Monte Carlo technique is applied to study the SF6He39 cluster at low temperatures. The method employs as input only pair potentials, the number of atoms, and the temperature, and is thus independent of the trial function bias which can affect calculation of structural...

    We present a simple and stable quantum Monte Carlo approach for computing forces between atoms in a molecule. In this approach we propose to use as Monte Carlo estimator of the force the standard Hellmann-Feynman expression (local force expressed as the derivative of the total potential energy...
