Intended Audience: 

I will first give a brief introduction of the auxiliary field Quantum Monte Carlo (AFQMC) method. Then I will discuss the minus sign problem and the constrained path Monte Carlo (CPMC) method which was designed to attack the minus sign problem. Finally I will present our recent development, the self-consistent CPMC method and discuss the application of this method in the study of doped two-dimensional Hubbard model. We establish the existence of stripe order in the 1/8 doped two-dimensional Hubbard model together with other numerical methods. I will conclude by discussing the potential applications of this method in the study of strongly correlated systems and the possibility to further improve it.
