Shell-model Monte Carlo techniques allow a microscopic calculation of thermodynamical properties of atomic nuclei. Here, it is applied to a mean-field plus pairing model for [sup 50]Cr. Thermodynamical properties such as the specific heat and level densities are studied. Indication of a pairing phase transition is found. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We use quantum Monte Carlo methods in the framework of the interacting nuclear shell model to calculate the statistical properties of nuclei at finite temperature and/or excitation energies. With this approach we can carry out realistic calculations in much larger configuration spaces than are...

    An overview, recent developments, and future perspectives of the Monte Carlo shell-model (MCSM) calculations are described. The advantage of the MCSM over the conventional diagonalization method, its applicability to huge systems in large model spaces and with many valence nucleons, is clarified...

    The shell model Monte Carlo (SMMC) approach is a powerful state-of-the-art method for the microscopic calculation of level densities in the presence of correlations. With this method it is possible to perform realistic calculations in model spaces that are many orders of magnitude larger than...

    We demonstrate how the energy-variance extrapolation method works using the sequence of the approximated wave functions obtained by the Monte Carlo Shell Model (MCSM), taking 56Ni with pf-shell as an example. The extrapolation method is shown to work well even in the case that the MCSM shows...

    Recent developments of the nuclear shell model are presented. The magic numbers are the key concept of the shell model, and are shown to be different in exotic nuclei from those of stable nuclei. Their novel origin and robustness will be discussed. By the Monte Carlo Shell Model (MCSM), the...

    We propose a new approach for alleviating the ‘sign’ problem in the nuclear shell model Monte Carlo method. The approach relies on modifying the integration contour of the Hubbard-Stratonovich transformation to pass through an imaginary stationary point in the auxiliary-field...

    We extend the shell-model Monte Carlo applications to the rare-earth region to include the odd-even nucleus 161Dy. The projection on an odd number of particles leads to a sign problem at low temperatures making it impractical to extract the ground-state energy in direct calculations. We use...

    The Monte Carlo shell model is firstly applied to the calculation of the no-core shell model in light nuclei. The results are compared with those of the full configuration interaction. The agreements between them are within a few % at most.

    Wavefunctions obtained from the Monte Carlo shell model (MCSM) calculation are investigated. It has been difficult to discuss the intrinsic structure of nuclei in conventional shell-model calculations. We propose a way to describe an intrinsic state in the MCSM and demonstrate the appearance of...
