Drummond, Neil and Towler, M. D. and Needs, R. J. (2004) Jastrow correlation factor for atoms, molecules, and solids. Physical Review B, 70 (23). ISSN 1550-235X
A form of Jastrow factor is introduced for use in quantum Monte Carlo simulations of finite and periodic systems. Test data are presented for atoms, molecules, and solids, including both all-electron and pseudopotential atoms. We demonstrate that our Jastrow factor is able to retrieve a large fraction of the correlation energy.
