An improved Monte Carlo diffusion model is used to calculate the ground state energies and chemical potentials of parahydrogen clusters of three to forty molecules, using two different p-H2-p-H2 interactions. The improvement is due to three-body correlations in the importance sampling, to the time step adjustment and to a better estimation of statistical errors. In contrast to path-integral Monte Carlo results, this method predicts no magic clusters other than that with thirteen molecules.
