Classical and quantum walks: similarities and differences

PDE and Applied Math Seminar

Speaker: Alberto Grunbaum, UC Berkeley
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Tue, Nov 13 2012, 3:10PM

I will describe joint work with several collaborators based mainly on "spectral methods" to analyze quantum walks, their limit laws, recurrence properties, etc. I will draw comparisons with the classical world and illustrate some general results with a few well known two dimensional quantum walks.
