(1999)Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) is one of the most powerful methods for solving many body problems in Physics and Chemistry. MC sampling allows one to measure physical properties systems with very complicated wave functions that ...

(2001)The second system we have studied is a set of idealized (harmonic) and realistic quantum dots. Two idealized dots, spherical and squashed, quasi2D structures, are analyzed. In the first QMC is contrasted with a large set ...

(2002)We present a mechanism for adaptation in dynamical systems. Systems which have this mechanism are called called selfadjusting systems. The control parameters in a selfadjusting system are slowly varying, rather ...
