The path-integral renormalization group method is an efficient tool for computing electronic structure of strongly correlated electron systems. Combined with the conventional density functional approaches as a hybrid scheme, it offers a first-principles method for complex materials with involved electron correlation effects. We assess the efficiency and applicability of the hybrid scheme by examining applications to Sr2VO4 and YVO 3.
