Title: Stochastic simulation of a finite-temperature one-dimensional Bose gas: From the Bogoliubov to the Tonks-Girardeau regime

Abstract

We present an ab initio stochastic method for calculating thermal properties of a trapped, one-dimensional Bose gas covering the whole range from weak to strong interactions. Discretization of the problem results in a Bose-Hubbard-type Hamiltonian, whose imaginary time evolution is made computationally accessible by stochastic factorization of the kinetic energy. To achieve convergence for low enough temperatures such that quantum fluctuations are essential, the stochastic factorization is generalized to blocks, and ideas from density-matrix renormalization are employed. We compare our numerical results for density and first-order correlations with analytic predictions.
