Consistent Application of Maximum Entropy to Quantum-Monte-Carlo Data

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Bayesian statistics in the frame of the maximum entropy concept has widely been used for inferential problems, particularly, to infer dynamic properties of strongly correlated fermion systems from Quantum-Monte-Carlo (QMC) imaginary time data. In current applications, however, a consistent treatment of the error-covariance of the QMC data is missing. Here we present a closed Bayesian approach to account consistently for the QMC-data.
