Title: Continuous Quantum Walks

Room: VR-II, V-158
Time: Thursday 22nd August, 11:00hrs

Abstract:

Continuous quantum walks arise naturally as quantum analogues of continuous random walks, but in contrast to their classical counterparts, they exhibit some curious and counter-intuitive properties. I will give an introductory talk on continuous quantum walks and present some of these exciting properties. 
The motivation for studying quantum walks largely comes from quantum physics and quantum computing, however, the emphasis of this talk will be on the mathematics. In particular, no prior knowledge of anything quantum is assumed.
