We present a quantum-number projection technique which enables us to exactly treat spin, momentum, and other symmetries embedded in the Hubbard model. By combining this projection technique, we extend the path-integral renormalization-group method to improve the efficiency of numerical computations. By taking numerical calculations for the standard Hubbard model and the Hubbard model with next-nearest-neighbor transfer, we show that the present extended method can extremely enhance numerical accuracy and that it can handle excited states, in addition to the ground state.
