A variational Monte Carlo study using inhomogeneous backflow transformations is reported for the [H−;e+] and [Li−;e+] positronic compounds. The backflow transformations greatly improve the total energies, positron affinities, and two-photon annihilation rates. The Slater–Jastrow-backflow trial wave function is well suited to the theoretical analysis of positronic compounds.
