MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Monte Carlo simulations of two-dimensional charged bosons

Stefania De Palo, Sergio Conti and Saverio Moroni


Quantum Monte Carlo methods are used to calculate various ground state properties of charged bosons in two dimensions, throughout the whole density range where the fluid phase is stable. Wigner crystallization is predicted at $r_s\simeq 60$. Results for the ground state energy and the momentum distribution are summarized in analytic interpolation formulas embodying known asymptotic behaviors. Near freezing, the condensate fraction is less than 1%. The static structure factor $S(k)$ and susceptibility $\chi(k)$ are obtained from the density-density correlation function in imaginary time, $F({\bf k},\tau)$. An estimate of the energy of elementary excitations, given in terms of an upper bound involving $S(k)$ and $\chi(k)$, is compared with the result obtained via analytic continuation from $F({\bf k},\tau)$.
