Abstract

We introduce a first-principles molecular dynamics method based on the discretized path integral representation of quantum particles. Fermi statistics is automatically generated by an effective exchange potential. This path-integral molecular dynamics method is able to simulate exchange in electron plasmas at the border of the degenerate regime with a satisfactory level of accuracy.
