Direct path-integral Monte Carlo results for electrons in quantum dots

Abnormal superfluid fraction and structural properties of electrons in 2D and 3D quantum dots: an ab initio path-integral Monte Carlo study

We present extensive new direct path-integral path-integral monte carlo results for electrons in quantum dots in two and three dimensions.This allows us to investigate the nonclassical rotational inertia (ncri) of the system, and we find an abnormal negative superfluid fraction [phys.rev.lett.112,235301(2014)] under some conditions.In addition, we study the structural properties by computing a sophisticated center-two particle correlation function.Remarkably, we find no connection between the spatial structure and the ncri, since the former can be nearly identical for fermi-and bose-statistics for parameters where the superfluid fraction is diverging towards negativeinfinity.
