Title: Quantum Monte Carlo Simulations of the Half-filled Hubbard Model
Authors: Gabrielsson, Anders F. J.
Abstract: A Quantum Monte Carlo method of calculating operator expectation values for the ground state of the nearest-neighbor Heisenberg model on large square lattices is presented, along with some comparisons of the results obtained from this method and alternative methods for 2D lattices. In the simulations the ground state is projected out from an arbitrary state and sampled in a valence bond basis spanning the spin singlet subspace. The projection method is then extended to be used on a simplified Hubbard model at half-filling, which is aptly called the T0-less Hubbard model, for arbitrary relative strengths of the electron hopping and electron-electron repulsion energy parameters. Results for calculated ground state energies in 1D are presented. These calculations are performed using a spin-charge separated basis, in which the valence bonds are generalized to also carry charge.
