Title: Periodicity in Quantum Walks
|Affiliation:||University of Waterloo|
Despite the title, quantum walks are, in general, not periodic. However they are, in general, periodic to any desired degree of accuracy. I will explain how this happens and discuss some of the underlying theory. Somewhat surprisingly it is simplest to derive the results for continuous walks from the results for discrete walks.
