Variational Monte Carlo calculations of lithium atom in strong magnetic field
Abstract
The variational Monte Carlo method is applied to investigate the ground state and some excited states of the lithium atom and its ions up to Z = 10 in the presence of an external magnetic field regime with γ = 0–100 arb. units. The effect of increasing field strength on the ground state energy is studied and precise values for the crossover field strengths were obtained. Our calculations are based on using accurate forms of trial wave functions, which were put forward in calculating energies in the absence of magnetic field. Furthermore, the value of Y at which groundstate energy of the lithium atom approaches to zero was calculated. The obtained results are in good agreement with the most recent values and also with the exact values.

Theoretical electron transfer cross sections for 1.3{endash}130 eV/amu singly charged ions colliding with Rydberg atoms (n=28, m=2) in a magnetic field up to 4 T are presented. Both paramagnetic and diamagnetic interactions are taken into account for the initial state and the collision. Cross sections are calculated within the classical trajectory Monte Carlo model. A method to create a classical ensemble of electrons in a nonseparable Hamiltonian allows the initial quantum stationary states to be modeled. The effect of the magnetic field on electron capture is analyzed in terms of the fieldinduced alteration of the initial state, as well asmore »

MonteCarlo and Variational Calculations of the Magnetic Phase Diagram of CuFeO2
MonteCarlo and variational calculations are used to revise the phase diagram of the magnetically frustrated material CuFeO2. For fields 50 T < H < 65 T, a new spin flop phase is predicted between a canted threesublattice phase and the conventional conical spinflop phase. This phase has wavevector Q (0.8 , 0.43 ) and is commensurate in the x direction but incommensurate in the y direction. A canted fivesublattice phase is predicted between the multiferroic phase and either a collinear fivesublattice phase for pure CuFeO2 or a canted threesublattice phase for Al or Gadoped CuFeO2. 
Variational quantum Monte Carlo study of twodimensional Wigner crystals: Exchange, correlation, and magneticfield effects
The twodimensional Wigner crystals are studied with the variational quantum Monte Carlo method. The close relationship between the groundstate wave function and the collective excitations in the system is illustrated, and used to guide the construction of the groundstate wave function of the strongly correlated solid. Exchange, correlation, and magneticfield effects all give rise to distinct physical phenomena. In the absence of any external magnetic field, interesting spin orderings are observed in the ground state of the electron crystal in various twodimensional lattices. In particular, twodimensional bipartite lattices are shown not to lead necessarily to an antiferromagnetic ground state. Inmore » 
Monte Carlo simulation of a cesium atom beam in a magnetic field
We present Monte Carlo simulations of the deflection of a beam of {sup 133}Cs atoms in a two wire magnetic field. Our results reveal the relationship between transmission rate of the atoms and incident parameters. Incident angle and position of the beam with maximum transmission are obtained from the simulations. The effect of the deflection field on the spatial distribution (beam profile) of {sup 133}Cs is derived. The method will help with the design of magnetic deflection experiments and to extract the magnetic properties from such experiments.
