### quantum Monte Carlo

**(QMC)**
(MC approach to difficult quantum mechanical problems)

The term **quantum Monte Carlo** (**QMC**) is used for
the application of Monte Carlo methods to quantum mechanics
problems not amenable to more straight-forward
numerical techniques, such
as a quantum many-body problem.
