Path Integral Methods

A path integral is a sum over trajectories. They are well-suited for accurate representation of fluctuations and non-perturbative phenomena. Monte Carlo sampling on high-performance computers enables many new applications for path integrals.

In our group we use path integrals to solve problems in quantum mechanics, using imaginary time path integrals.
