Monte Carlo simulation of worldlines of quantum particles in a path integral representation is a powerful tool mainly used for studying boson systems. Such approaches have been used to investigate properties of superfluid helium in confined geometries and localization of bosons in a random disorder potential. In particular we are interested in the role of correlations of the disorder distribution. I will introduce theoretical tools and techniques and discuss opportunities, difficulties and challenges in this field.
