William A. Lester mostly deals with Atomic physics, Ab initio, Quantum Monte Carlo, Potential energy surface and Quantum mechanics. His Atomic physics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Scattering and Excitation. His Ab initio study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Molecule, Basis set, Ab initio quantum chemistry methods, Order of magnitude and Electronic structure.
His work deals with themes such as Diffusion Monte Carlo and Dynamic Monte Carlo method, which intersect with Quantum Monte Carlo. His studies deal with areas such as Monte Carlo molecular modeling and Hybrid Monte Carlo as well as Dynamic Monte Carlo method. His study in Potential energy surface is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Chemical reaction, Activation energy, Ring, Molecular physics and Graphene.
