Smaller time steps, however, require a larger total number of steps to sample sufficiently the probability space. Thus, the optimal time step should be small enough to add no significant error to the average while large enough to keep the total number of Monte Carlo steps manageable. In addition, the more accurate the trial wave function is the smaller the error due to the time step will be [35]. 2 Configuration Population In DMC, a finite number of electron configurations represent the many-body wave function.

101, 081704. j17 2 Accuracy of Quantum Monte Carlo Methods for Point Defects in Solids William D. Parker, John W. Wilkins, and Richard G. 1 Introduction Point defects, such as vacancies, interstitials and anti-site defects, are the only thermodynamically stable defects at finite temperatures [1]. The infinite slope of the entropy of mixing at infinitesimally small defect concentrations results in an infinite driving force for defect formation. As a result, at small defect concentrations, the entropy of mixing always overcomes the enthalpy of defect formations.
