This is in regard to the method described here:


I was just playing with this technique a bit and found it was almost useless until "Weight" was set to 10000 for a system with ground state energy 60. I first tried out a weight of 100, but this resulted in a wavefunction overlap of about 0.0001, which was (apparently) large for purposes of computing entanglement.

With a large weight of 10,000, the overlap was below the number of significant figures of the printf statement (I think 10 digits).

Is that typical? Should I go even higher for the weight?

Formatting Tips:
  • To format code, indent by four spaces
  • To format inline LaTeX, surround it by @@ on both sides
  • To format LaTeX on its own line, surround it by $$ above and below
  • For LaTeX, it may be necessary to backslash-escape underscore characters to obtain proper formatting. So for example writing \sum\_i to represent a sum over i.
