abstract

  • We generalize the imaginary-chemical-potential quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) method proposed by Dagotto [Phys. Rev. B 41, R811 (1990)] to systems without particle-hole symmetry. The generalized method is tested by comparing the results of the QMC simulations and exact diagonalization on small Hubbard molecules, such as tetrahedron and truncated tetrahedron. Results of the application of the method to the C60 Hubbard molecule are discussed.
