DSQSS is a program package for solving quantum many-body problems defined on lattices. It is based on the quantum Monte Carlo method in Feynman’s path integral representation. It covers a broad range of problems written by flexible input files that define arbitrary unit cells in arbitrary dimensions, and arbitrary matrix elements of the interactions among arbitrary number of degrees of freedom.

Need to compile on Linux/Cent OS.
DSQSS is preinstalled on ISSP supercomputer system B (sekirei) and system C (enaga).

Physical quantities that can be computed

A wide variety of models are supported. Information of unitcell and matrix elements of two-body Hamiltonian can be input from text files.


Quantum Monte Carlo algorithm that samples Feynman path integrals by using worm update method.


Parallel computing by MPI is supported.
