  • Quantum Monte Carlo provides an ab initio solution to the Schroedinger equation
  • Its most commonly-used variant, "fixed-node" diffusion Monte Carlo, estimates energies with an accuracy comparable to that of high-level coupled-cluster calculations
  • These two methods, each having advantages and disadvantages, are complementary "gold-standards" of quantum chemistry
