We present the first auxiliary field Monte Carlo calculations for a rare earth nucleus, 170Dy. We calculate various static Hamiltonian is used to demonstrate the physical properties that can be studied in this region. We calculate various static observables for both uncranked and crancked systems and show how the shape distribution evolves with temperature. We also introduce a discretization of the path integral that allows a more efficient Monte Carlo sampling.
