Ground states in the Many Interacting Worlds approach. (arXiv:1712.01918v1 [quant-ph])

Recently the Many-Interacting-Worlds (MIW) approach to a quantum theory
without wave functions was proposed. This approach leads quite naturally to
numerical integrators of the Schr\"odinger equation. It has been suggested that
such integrators may feature advantages over fixed-grid methods for higher
numbers of degrees of freedom. However, as yet, little is known about concrete
MIW models for more than one spatial dimension and/or more than one particle.
In this work we develop the MIW approach further to treat arbitrary degrees of
freedom, and provide a systematic study of a corresponding numerical
implementation for computing one-particle ground and excited states in one
dimension, and ground states in two spatial dimensions. With this step towards
the treatment of higher degrees of freedom we hope to stimulate their further
study.
