Thermodynamic properties of non-relativistic quantum systems are treated by the Monte Carlo calculation of path integrals. This method can be applied to the N-body problem. For boson systems the importance sampling of permutation and coordinates is efficient. For fermion systems direct calculation of determinant of propagators is efficient to avoid the negative sign problem.
